Can't install PDFCreator


#21

HI,

sorry for the trouble, I think this is the most tricky driver related issue I have encountered so far. If you run “print management”, do PDFCreator drivers or printers show up in the print server properties (the print server is your own machine in this case)?

Best regards

Robin

Robin,

Installed PDFCreator again, still getting the Printer Helper error, and under Print Management I do not see PDFCreator drivers or printers.

Now this is on 1 specific computer that I'm having this problem. On all the other computers I had no problems installing the program and using the application. On other computers I do see the PDFCreator driver/printer. I'll get another picture of this once I make it back around to another computer.

On another computer that I was able to install the PDFCreator I took a screen shot of the Print Management.


Here you can see it does show the PDFCreator

And here's the driver for it.

Robin,

Any thoughts on this? Any other suggestions?

Hi,

the last thing I can currently think of is sending you the driver package which we use for PDFCreator Server by email.
The drivers for the desktop editions aren’t packaged, and the installtion works a bit differently for the packaged drivers, so there is a chance the packaged drivers don’t suffer from the same issue. Both use the same Postscript driver.
Is the email from your profile up to date?

Best regards,

Robin

Yes that is my personal email and is current.

Hello, I have the exact same problem during installation. Uninstalling my AV or putting the software into AV’s white list also did not work. Tried installer ver. PDFCreator-3_0_1 until PDFCreator-3_2_0.

Can I have the same installation package?

Thank you.


#28

I have sent both of you the driver package + short instructions.


#29

Thank you, I will test it out and let you know as soon as possible.


#30

Robin thanks for all the help. I was able to install the printer using your instructions.


#31

I am getting a similar problem. The install program says it cannot create the PDF Printer( as shown above) If tried everything suggested here and get the same error. This is on a brand new Windows 10 laptop with all the most recent MS updates. I use PDF Creator on several different Windows 7 and older PCs with no problems.

I just experienced the exact same problem on a brand new PC with Windows 10. It cant install the printer. Sad I've used PDF Creator for years at all my customer sites but can
t any longer. Since I've gotten no response to my inquiries. Ive decided to switch to a different pdf convertor program.

I do not know if I should start a new entry for my firsts time requests and add to this set for installation issues. I have been trying to install PDFCreator-3_4_0-Setup. It goes through most the process but before completion it responds with the following I would have attached as pics, but they would not properly upload to here: "the temporary path where PDFCreator stores the print jobs can't be accessed. This is a config problem on your machine and needs to be fixed. Do you want PDFCreator to attempt repairing it? Your spool folder is: C\Users\James\AppData\Local\Temp\PDFCreator" I responded with Yes. Then I receive this: "PDFCreator was unable to repair spool folder. Please contact your administrator or the support to assist you in changing the permissions of the path "-same path as above-". I was already in administrator mode. So since it went ahead and installed the PDFCreator shortcut on the desk top, I decided to try operating it. Then it responded with same one I first wrote above in quote marks. What should I do?
