I know this would crop up with TMG 8, but I have just gotten a new Windows 8.1 VM on a new laptop.

 

Fresh install of TMG 9.01. Restored project. Dealt with exhibit folder pointing to the wrong place.

 

Trying to print a "Descendant Boxed Chart" to the PDF printer.

 

Getting the error message: Printer not activated, error code -30.

 

Have removed the printer, reinstalled via TMG, rebooted, tried printing again, same error.

 

The Port was already set to NUL:

 

Any other steps to enable/activate this printer?

Rob -

 

I assume you created the chart in VCF and then tried to print to the default TMG PDF printer.  I do not believe that will work - and I get the same error message.  You are able to print charts to one of the virtual PDF printers (BullZip, PDF995, etc.) - all free for the download.  See the pinned message re printing charts to PDF at the top of the VCF forum here.

Hi Virginia,

 

Yeah, I suppose I can download PDFCreator or some other one, but isn't this something that should be "fixed" in TMG 9 by now? I mean we've gone through a couple of licensed versions of Amyuni's code at this point.... Shouldn't this get better by now?

Is the problem not limited to VCF- you are seeing it in other TMG reports?

Hi Virginia,

 

Yeah, I hadn't tried other reports yet, but just did a non-VCF report and the PDF printer works fine.... So, it is just VCF....  Still annoyed that Wholly Genes hasn't fixed this after how many years?
