i have written one service that sends some documents to pdf printer. it all works well on my xp development machine but on our server2008 machine it does not. I have found a thread related to service in this forum but it did not help me. Here is what i have found:
-when my service is installed as local system, before sending documents to pdf printer i start from the service the pdfcreator itself; server2008 shows the popup that my service wants to interact with me; when i accept that popup pdfcreator informs me that Pdfcreator path can not be found (this message shows just once); i have tried to add PdfCreator folder in various places without luck
how can i set the temp folder for "local system" account, or where it does point?
i have tried to set the service to belong to a specified user (the temp folder should be c:\\users\\xxx\\appdata\\local\\temp\\) but the pdf is not still generating even if i have created pdfcreator folder within.
i suspect that if i resolve that i might print to pdf from service
next what i am not sure is if i should start pdfcreator from inside the service? i would say it is not necessary.
thanks for any help
