    Default keying on printer driver error/check for printer driver

    When using :Report.save_as("","",PDF,), if there is not a valid pdf driver installed, there is an error dialog that Alpha throws out. I can't seem to key on this in any way because this does not generate a standard error for on error goto and that error_code_get() can evaluate. Does anyone know how to key on/bypass this print error? Alternatively... how to check to see if a valid driver is installed?

    Mike,
    If you know where the driver is supposed to be (in the install folder perhaps?), then easy enough to check for that file's existence. In the application you are using that has this error....is the Amyuni driver present in the install folder (think it is called amyuni.inf)? If not, then once the driver is installed and no errors occur, is it now in the install folder?

    Just the way I would approach this issue....

    EDIT: v10 has a different driver and has its own folder as well for the driver files.

    Hi Mike,
    Thanks for the thoughts. What I don't know is what the file name for the installed driver is, and therefore able to check for it's presence. Also, where the file should be. Life was easier before trying to deploy an application across OS platforms.
