The error below is created in a PDF file after selecting to combine a number of secured PDF documents. The program allows me to create a PS file however, it doesnt save as a PDF file and creates a document containing the following error message:
OFFENDING COMMAND: eexec
What does this error mean?
Thank you to anyone who can assist.
Kind regards, Robert
this error can be caused by trying to 'redistill' protected pdf files. there is a section in every postscript file generated by printing a pdf which looks like:
%ADOBeginClientInjection: DocumentSetup Start "No Re-Distill"
%% Removing the following [XXXX] lines is illegal, subject > to the Digital Copyright Act of 1998.
mark currentfile eexec ...
if this postscript file is printed as a PDF, it will cause this to be printed to the error log:
Redistilling encrypted PDF is not permitted.
Unrecoverable error: undefined in eexec
workarounds have been found; they're out there if you search....
errors also can look like:
