  • Pdf Drivers

    I know there are multiple posts about this exact same subject and I have searched them and followed the instructions but to no avail. I don't want to install a 3rd party pdf driver.

    I have downloaded Pcdmis v2012 mr1 onto a windows7 laptop and cannot create Pdf files. I get the message 'unable to load the PDF drivers! Is 'cdintf.dll' installed correctly?'

    I have followed the instructions in the 'Pdf driver install files'. When I run the 'install pdf 40 .bat' i get the message ' Error Code:1722, The RPC Server is unavailable.

    I was hoping someone had came across this and could help me out. Quickly running out of ideas! TIA

    If you are printing reports. I don't believe you can. You would have to use RTF output. I was able to print my graphics window by setting my default printer to Microsoft PDF output. I am on Win10 and using 2018 and above.

      Just install cutepdf and be done with it. It's freeware.

        Thanks for the reply's.

        I have installed Cute Pdf still when Pcdmis comes to a print command in the program it asks for the cdintf.dll drivers to be installed. Jesus wept;( I can go into the program, view report window, click the print button and it will print a PDF, just wont work with the print commands.

          Do you have proper default printer setup for print commands ?

            No, That's the issue, I can't load the drivers so that I can't default the Pcdmis converter, it's not available to pick. I've tried the Zip file to no avail.

              Selecting Print to pdf/rtf will use the Amyuni print driver (converter). To use cutePDF you will need to unselect print to file and use printer. The printer can be whatever you have chosen.

                Any solution for this?

                We got a new machine in at the start of the year and was running parts all summer. (pdf and printer working)
                I too, have have a system using v2012 MR1 on Win 7, and recently started getting errors.
                First PCDMIS was crashing at the end of the loop (print command), so I turned off the printer (TO_PRINTER=OFF). This allowed the program to run for about a day, with the app creating a PDF.
                I then used a Windows batch file to print the PDF (and left the PCDMIS print command off) but the PDF creation failed immediately (creating a pdf file of 0kb).
                Unlike Liambo734 I was able to re-install PDF drivers but then got the same error as above 'unable to load the PDF drivers! Is 'cdintf.dll' installed correctly?'
                I did the deep clean too, but no resolution. Even tried copying a similar CMM that has PDFs and printouts working, still no fix
                I then set TO_FILE=OFF and TO_PRINTER=ON and the print-out started working, but not consistently with PCDMIS freezing/crashing at the end of the loop.
                Yesterday I did a complete PCDMIS re-install and still no fix.
                Why does it work on some machines and not others?

                  Sounds like Windows has gummed something up.
