Wondering how much support there might be for those of use using PDFCreator as a companywide server solution?
The lack of native 'Windows Service' support really causes problem. I don’t understand why pdfforge has not put more development emphasis on supporting their product as a server solution?
I am running W2K8R2SP1 with PDFCreator 1.2.0 (putting off upgrading to 1.2.3 due to the known uninstallation bug). I have multiple PDFCreator 'printers' all configured to directly save the files to a standard folder on the users desktop. This solution is very robust and works great.
However every few days/weeks PDFCreator will stop printing. Logging into the server Taskmgr will show hundreds of hours of CPU time on the PDFCreator process and show the CPU currently pegged at 50%. At this moment I have no recourse except to restart the service. It would be nice if I could open the management console to see what job it is stuck on, if it is even stuck on a job, or what is going on. Unfortunately when I open the PDFCreator management console it just creates a second PDFCreator instance.
In addition having to perform the whole srvany trick to get it to run as a service is time consuming and lame.
I would really appreciate an official response to this question and am wondering how many others would like one too?
