Spool delivers no output / Temp path wrong?


I got no answer to my posting in German help area before, so I am trying the English one. I need to use pdfcreator, but it won’t let me do it properly as normal Windows 7 user. The document stucks in the printer queue and no dialog opens.

PDFcreator just works when I am signed in as an admin. I see in the PDFcreator monitor that the teamp file is saved under C:\Users and as I had to install it with admin rights it uses the Admin’s path. But how can I change this? Giving every user rights to this path does not work. Registry temppath changes like in earlier versions did not work out.

Thanks for help!


I will send you a mail with a link to a preview version of PDFCreator 1.5.1 in which he hope to have this solved. Please let us know if it works.

kind regards,

Thanky ou for the quick response and the preview version as proposed solution. Installed it (as Admin) successfully, but problem stays the same: Usage of PDFCreator as Admin works fine, other user not


We have the same problem. Is there a solution? We use Windows server 2008R2 with terminal server


it should be fixed now, if it is urgent and you can´t wait for version 1.6.0 to be released, send us a mail and we can send you an updated .dll which has fixed the problems on some of the servers so far.

( just in case you havn´t seen it yet: http://www.pdfforge.org/content/installation-terminal-server -this needs to be done in any case)
