COM Merge Failing 130+ Pages

I have a process that was using the old COM that I converted to the new COM on version 2.0 and have been having issues with files crashing my process script.


Version v2.1.1 Build 820


Essentially I split a text file into various individual pages and then print each page to a queue and combine them.


I have tracked the issue back to possibly a Ghost Script problem and a limit that someone found as possibly being 130 Post Script files combined under GS 9.14 shown here.




Here are the lines in the TRACE log when the error occurs.

I searched the forum a bit but didn't see anything specific to this problem, if so please let me know the thread or if you have any idea on a solution or work around for this problem?


a possible work around for this is to manually replace the ghostscript in the PDFCreator folder with a newer version (9.16 , 32 bit version). This will cause problems when printing PDFs from Adobe Reader though. Hopefully we can fix the second issue and use GS 9.16 in future releases.

best regards,
