    Default Solution - PDF/Printer Driver error on Win2000

    After searching the AMYUNI website and internet in general I came up with this solution which works for me. I hope this is useful to anyone else with this problem.

    SOLUTION (only tested for version 5):
    1. Logon to your Win 2000 machine with Administator priveledges
    2. Click on Start menu, select Settings, and choose Printers
    5. Make sure that you do not have a PDF Converter printer in your printer's folder.
    6. In the Printers window double-click on Add Printer.
    7. The Add Printer Wizard displays. Click Next.
    8. Select Local printer, remove the checkbox to Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer. Click Next.
    9. Select LPT1: Printer Port. If LPT1 port is not available the printer can be installed to any existing LPT, COM or USB port. Click Next.
    10. In the Add Printer Wizard page click on the Have Disk… button and Browse to where you installed Alpha 5, locate the oemsetup.inf file and select that file. Click OK
    11. This brings up the Add Printer Wizard page and you should see the "PDF Compatible
    Printer Driver” on the page. Click Next.
    12. The "Name your Printer" window will appear.
    IMPORTANT: The printer name must be spelled exactly as indicated below.
    Type "PDF Driver" in the Name your Printer window.
    In Printer Sharing, select Do not share printer and click Next
    14. Select No to Print Test Page and click Next
    15. Click Finish.
    16. You will notice in your printers folder a PDF Driver Icon

    Next time you load Alpha 5 the HTML, RTF and Text Driver will install correctly and you will be able to print using those driver.

    Let me know of your experiences

    Thank You, Thank You, Thank you. You are my hero.

    I have had exactly the same problem since 14th November last year and I was told it was unique to me.

    You solution has worked a treat.

    Thank You again.

    Glad I could be of assistance. I was in a similar position and after reading through the forums i also thought it was an isolated problem to my setup. I needed answers fast as the drivers play a significant role in my applications and win2000 is apart of our working environment. I stumbled on a potential solution by accident (which put me in the right direction) and went from there.

    Matthew,

    I followed the instructions you laid out. I actually found the OEMsetup.ini file through Runtime v5. Right at the endo of the installation, Windows gave me a message something about "certificate not valid or something" and didn't install the pdf driver. Now I do not have a pdf driver on my remote desktop. Any way to reinstall the pdf driver and is there any way go around the "certificate" issue?

    Thx in advance.
    Kris
