Could not print report. ErrorCode=TIME_OUT_ERROR

I am using QlikView Server 11 with Publisher and PDF Distributor license. Machine has 16 CPU cores and 96 GB RAM.

I am trying to generate PDFs using 5 tasks running concurrently (5 x 800 = 4000 PDF reports total). The tasks are writing the reports to local disk (C:\PDF_drop).

I have gone into the "Advanced" tab of the ReloadEngine and set "Max number of simultaneous QlikView engines for distribution" to 8.

I limited it to 8 based on this post from Stefan:

However, when the tasks are running, one failed with the error mentioned in the title. A section of the log file is below:

Any clues what is happening here? Thanks in advance!

Hello simon.saugier,

When the QlikView is installed, is installed automatically the PDFExchange. Well we did a test, print to pdf any text document and did not work. Then, we uninstalled the PDFExchange and then the Qlikview 11 and we installed QlikView 11 again. We did the test again and it worked.

Do the backup of QVPR folder before te uninstallation.

I hope I have helped.

Hi Simon,

You need to make sure your temp folder is on a share so both QVS and get to it.


Also, need to make sure that the service Print Spooler is enabled. If this was disable when Qlik was installed, the PDF Xchange will not work and you have to uninstall it and install it again.

Do the backup of QVPR folder before te uninstallation.
