To have the PDF driver work under Win7 (32-bit), I simply installed the driver using File / Printer Setup... and clicking the [Install PDF printer]. That permanently installs the PDF printer driver.
When you want to print a report, you select Acrobat (PDF) for the 'Save to' file type.
I too am running Win 7 Home (x32) and TMG v7.04.000.
I don't actually want to print, I just want to create a one-page pedigree that I can share with another researcher. I would happily share a text file, but PDF is the only option.
- Selected Pedigree under Reports menu. Changed options to suit, saved settings. Ran again. Nothing happened. Ran again. Got "Calculating text" box. Then get an error: "OLE IDispatch exception code 1801 from CDINTF~1: Printer Installation failed.."
- Click Ignore, get this error: "OLE IDispatch exception code 65535 from CDINTF~1: DEVMODE is NULL Check that the printer is installed correctly.."
- Click Ignore, the error repeats. Click cancel, now get a real crash: "Object GOREP is not found. 4 FRMRDS_ONEPERSON.DESTROY"
- Click Ignore, get "Unknown member ROPROTECTIONMAN." Click Okay, this cycle continues with a whole series of varying errors, no matter whether I ignore, abort, or retry.
I did try to install the PDF writer, both from within the report and from the File menu as above, and got a set of errors that I cannot copy/paste, several of which amounted to variations on "file not found."
Reporting this would be a lot easier if the errors were logged, but my "error.txt" file in the "logs" directory is dated 2009.VENT mode ON
This is particularly frustrating because I've now spent over an hour testing this, checking for updates, trying to search here on the forum (which is broken), writing this report, etc. It would have been faster to scan the original document I got my data from and send that instead, or to key all the data in freshly in a new text file or email message.VENT mode OFF
I have a laptop running XP with TMG on it, so I guess I'll try it there.
