29100 - Internal GhostScript Error


#81

Hi,

if the app sends PCL commands directly, I am afraid PDFCreator will not be able to handle it. I think you can find out by disabling automatic saving in PDFCreator, printing something from the app and then (before pressing save inside the PDFCreator GUI) checking the file in %temp%\PDFCreator\spool. It will be a .ps file, but if you open it with a text editor and it doesn’t have a .ps header, it isn’t actually a proper Postscript file.

Best regards

Robin

Hi Qian,

there can be multiple reasons for getting this error; it basically just means something unexpected or beyond our control went wrong during the conversion from Postscript, which is done by Ghostscript.
Please go to the PDFCreator application settings, set the logging level to "trace" and reproduce the error.
Afterwards, either send your log to support(at)pdfforge.org or post it here and we will try to help.

Best regards

Robin

Hi,

it seems it isn't able to correctly rebuild the string for your username, but I am not sure why. I created a user account with your username for testing but it was able to convert everything properly, so the Unicode characters don't seem to be the issue.
Did you by any chance disable the creation of 8.3 DOS File Names on your partition(s)?
PDFCreator won't work properly if this is disabled, but it is enabled by default in all supported Windows editions.

Best regards

Robin
