I tried, like suggested in the help files, to run the pdfcreator.exe as a service thrue instsrv.
Now, the services is present in the "Services" list of Windows, but it cannot start with the following error as a result:
Could not start the PFD Creator Service on 10.0.0.2 (I'm controling my server at distance).
Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
I've tried the user control options, but nothing helped...
