Hi,

I have a problem with my PDF Creation from mgm console. It stopped working 2w ago and I get this error in the logfile.

I can run the report manually from the application but it does not work from mgm console.

Any ideas?

Hi,

I think that your PDF printer is corrupted.

Try repair your Qlikview server.

or you can even install PDF xchange 3.0 (This is the only version of PDF exchange supported by qlikview publisher).

Re: PDF Creation does not work

The PDF printer must exist for the Windows account that is running the distribution service. Log in as the service account, defines/create the printer and try again.

Hi Klas,

This can be caused by the Windows Print Spooler being disabled or it was disabled during the install. I would uninstalled pdf exchange 3.0 and reinstalled it.

You can download it here
