Hi All,

First of all, I would like to say sorry for this post. I
knew I have posted much about this here, but I am really
stuck with my client PC.

In my development PC, I have no problem working with saveas
pdf. but somehow on my client I could not make it to work. I
have read all documentations but it does not point to any
solution. it just state to install GNU Ghostscript and its
location.

But I have already installed it and also deployed the
postscript drivers from shared/powerbuilder folder.

What else should I need to make it work? Please help.
Thanks.

TIA,
Neil

Haven't done this for a while, but it seems like when I did,
on the client machine, I had this folder structure:
....\folder_with_pb_app\drivers
....\folder_with_pb_app\gs
In other words, copy the drivers folder and gs folder to the
client and place in(under) the app folder.
The first user to try it must have persmissions to install a
printer, which then creates the Sybase DataWindow PS
printer. After that you should be OK.

Thanks a lot KM and this has solved the mystery of saving to
pdf.
I never find in the documentation that we need to copy the
drivers folder itself. gs folder does not necessarily needed
in that location. only the drivers folder. i've been around
in a circle for quite long. now, this is solved. Thanks
again.
