Cannot install Qlikview PDF on win2008 64bit

If someone did find a solution to this problem, I would be pleased to hear it, since i have godt the same problem. Especially since PDF-Exchange doesn't work properly anymore (without paying full licence)

Cannot install Qlikview PDF on win2008 64bit

Hi Lars

Have a look at this thread - it should work.

http://community.qlik.com/forums/t/20333.aspx

Save the document with PDF X-change and then move and rename the file afterwards with the help of a macro.

Cannot install Qlikview PDF on win2008 64bit

Hey I have the same problem.

I've been using my macro to expot to pdf with a 32 bit computer and Windows XP.

Recently I've changed to a 64 bit computer and Windows 7. Now nothing is working!!!!

I have the same VBscrript function to print pdf with Bullzip, and I have the same message error : "ActiveX component can't create object: Bullzip.PDFPrinterSettings"

If anyone knows how to fix it, please let me know it.

Many thanks in advance!!!

Cannot install Qlikview PDF on win2008 64bit

Hello, folks!

I've found a different solution for the error "ActiveX component can't create object: Bullzip.PDFPrinterSettings".

Set a user environment variable (here called "PDF").
In the Bullzip options, put this statement in the file's name field: C:\<env:PDF>.pdf. Remember to set up Bullzip according to the needs.
So, Bullzip generates a PDF called "PrintingTest.pdf" in the C: directory.

I've used the following code:

Sub printPDF

vReport = "RP01" 'Set report
Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WSHShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Environment\PDF", "PrintingTest", "REG_SZ" 'Set environment variable
ActiveDocument.PrintReport(vReport), "Bullzip PDF Printer", false 'Printreport
Set WSHShell = Nothing

End Sub

Thank Betinelli, I've recently found my solution trying again with the Pdf writer recommended on the Qlikview web Page (PDF-XCHANGE 3.0).

This is what I do and it works :

'The function which prints the pdf's

Function printPDFReport(oReport, pdfOutputFile) ' sub program name
ActiveDocument.PrintReport oReport, "PDF-XChange 3.0", false ' Info QV there is PDF driver
checkOutputFile("C:\Temp\QlikView Printing.pdf")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") ' file handling system
objFSO.MoveFile "C:\Temp\QlikView Printing.pdf" , pdfOutputFile ' save the PDF file as name given
Set objFSO = nothing
End FUNCTION

'a function to prevent the file is creating before next step (necessary to prevent errors) :

function checkOutputFile(pdfFile)
Set fileTest = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
currentStatus = fileTest.FileExists (pdfFile)
if currentStatus = false then
rem ** let QV sleep for 1 seconds **
ActiveDocument.GetApplication.Sleep 1000
checkOutputFile(pdfFile)
end if
set fileTest = nothing
end function

Hope that helps too!!!

Cannot install Qlikview PDF on win2008 64bit

Solved!

Apperently the x64 version borrows some code from BioPdf try this instead:

replace

set objBullzip = CreateObject("Bullzip.PDFPrinterSettings")

with



set objBullzip = CreateObject("Bullzip.PdfSettings")

If you get a namespace error maybe you need to add this:

objBullzip.PrinterName = "Bullzip PDF Printer"

Re: Cannot install Qlikview PDF on win2008 64bit

Hey guys, I've been  using Bullzip printer the last few months successfully. But if I install the bullzip  printer in a windows vista, it fails sometimes when it attempts to overwrite the default Qlikview printing pdf . It gets stuck allways with a message like this :

1-This is my first message, here I uncheck the option "open the document once is created".

2-When I save the first option, here it appears a message asking if you are sure about overwriting the qlikview printing pdf. Of course I am!! But I found no way to keep this options. Because in few days, when I try to execute my macro to get my pdf files, it will happen again.

Anybody knows how to fix this issue??

Many thanks in advance!
