1.7.1 on 2008 r2 Terminal Server

we are currently having issues with 2 users trying to use version 1.2.x simultaneously so I thought to upgrade to 1.7.1.  after installing in terminal services mode and placing in execute mode after installation (also tried a reboot) the new version hangs indefinately if i try to access the options feature.  I’ve removed and reinstalled and the issue is persistant. is 1.7.1 tested to work with 2008 R2 terminal servers and will the pdfcreator printer work with 2 users accessing it simultaneously on the same terminal server?

Hi,

yes, it should work, could you post your setuplog.txt here or send it to us by mail?

regards,

Robin

Hi,

please try our preview version of PDFCreator written in C#:
http://forums.pdfforge.org/discussion/11150/testers-wanted-pdfcreator-rewrite-preview-version#Item_1
Not everything is finished yet, but it should run on terminal servers and it will probably be much faster to find/fix a bug in the new version.

regards,

Robin
