Hi all.

This is maybe a stupid question.

Got my website to function 95% except for the PDF printing section.

I need pdfrun.Print2PDF to appear in dcomcnfg in order for the reports to be printed.

I need to set the security settings but i do not seem to be able to get is backup even when installing activevfp.exe again.

Where am I doing it wrong?

Thank you

PDFs are always fun :)

Did you check the new docs on PDF?:

If you have compiled PDFRun.exe as a COM EXE server then it should show up in DCOMCNFG as PDFrun.Print2PDF along with other COM Exe servers

Other than that, you should of course be signed in as Administrator or equivalent.

I did see the new docs.

On my development pc I have VFP 9.0 installed and can compile it and it works fine.

But how do i get the PDFrun.Print2PDF installed on the distributed computer in order to set the iwan etc. security setting.

It does not show on the distributed computer. Everything else works fine but the PDF as a result of the problem above.

Got the answer in the following link to register certain types of files..


Please add to the Printing documentation for other users with this problem.
