Generate PDF file using printto tool

Postby vivektech » Tue Jan 26, 2010 5:50 pm

Hi There

I am working in one application where I use Bullzip printer to generate PDF file. My application and Bullzip/Printto were working great till last week but suddenly it started behaving awkward.

I use merging functionality as below.
Suppose I am printing A.txt and want to merge B.pdf along with it. So my application set the merge file setting for Bullzip printer as - oPrinterSettings.SetValue("mergefile", Trim(MergeList))
Also the errors are suppresed as - oPrinterSettings.SetValue("suppresserrors", "yes")

Then a command is prepared as :
Dim Cmd As String = <printto.exe>"A.txt" "Printer name"

Then I execute the command as : Call Shell(Cmd, AppWinStyle.NormalFocus, False)

Then my application wait for 300 seconds for the merged file to appear. It used to generate but it's failing now a days.

Bullzip printer and my application is installed in one web server, where I romote login to work on the stuffs. I noticed this event log under System Events in webserver-
Printer Bullzip PDF Printer (from 00423) in session 1 was set.
Printer Bullzip PDF Printer (from 00423) in session 1 was created.

00423 is name of my system from where I remote login to Web server. I am thinking what this events are conveying. Can you please help me out with this. Also is there any log file for Bullzip printer where I can check why the merged files are not getting created. Please let me know if someone require more information on this.

Thank you in advance.

On further investigation I noticed this in Event Log under System:
A.txt was printed on Bullzip printer.
A.txt was deleted from bullzip printer.
So if A.txt was printed (as per system log) where did the pdf file go !!!

Can anyone help please.
Thanks in advance -
Vivek

Hi - I'm just curious if you were able to resolve this issue. I am experiencing a similar issue where I generate the pdf file but a system process comes along and immediately deletes the file.
