Using PB11.5; we're researching a problem with trying to
SaveAs PDF with the app deployed on Windows Server 2008
(64-bit). We have been using the "Sybase Datawindow PS"
printer driver with GhostScript 7.06 in 32-bit environments.
Do we need to upgrade to a 64-bit printer driver? Is there
one?

Hi Mark;

That is a really old version of GS! Have you tried 8.64?

FWIW: if you decide to use the new GS - use its driver .INF file

BTW: The brand new PB 12.NET is rumoured to be looking at a new PDF
generation facility that will be internal (aka no GS will be required
anymore).

If you're tired of printer installation and GS hassle you might want to
give a look at CATsoftPDF that allows you the creation of PDFs from
DataWindows without printer driver.

Works on 64 Bit Windows as well....
