no help? i cannot print...

Hi,

sorry for the trouble.
Do you also get this error when you launch the PDFCreator.exe directly?
I haven't seen this error before and am not sure what could be causing it, but we will look into it.
It seems to be an error with the PrinterHelper retrieving information on the printer ports of your system, but we will most likely need to have a close look into the code to figure out what could be causing this. Does the PDFCreator printer show up in your list of printers?

Best regards

Robin

Hi Monica,

I haven't yet received any update from the developer who is looking into the issue.
Did you install PDF Architect together with PDFCreator?
It has a free create module (requires simple sign-up by email) which also installs a virtual printer, which might be an option for you to use as long as we try to figure out what is causing the error inside the pinterhelper.

Best regards

Robin

thanks robin,

i haven't installed pdf achitect, i will try, thanks

monica


#8

ok, pdf architect install own printer driver, but conversion in PDF/A IS NOT compliant with italian commerce chamber, and is not validated, with many errors


#9

Do you happen to have a link to the compliance guidelines for the Italian commerce chamber?
We'd like to take a look into the case.


#10

if you are registered with the chamber of commerce, you have access to a link that makes online validation


#11

I do not know if there are any online guidelines
