Hello,

i have a problem with the SaveAs of a datawindow to a pdf.
I installed Ghostcript 7.05, the "Sybase DataWindow PS" printer is
already installed.
After the boot of the pc everything works fine. But later the SaveAs-
function only creates a file with 0 byte. Then we have to restart the
pc and it works again.

Does have anybody an idea whats going wrong here?
Best regards

Erik

I would uninstall ghostscript and install the most recent version: 8.63.
Then after the install, add this directory to the system path: C:\Program
Files\gs\gs8.63\bin.

Also, it would be a good idea to mention your PowerBuilder version as well.

Hello,

i also tried the recent version of ghostscript.
We use PB 11.5 with latest EBF.

The problem is that the problem only occurs sometimes. It's not
possible for me to replay the error.
