It seem that when loading, pdfcreator read the default printer informations.
It's a problem for us because a large amount of our customers do not get a printer installed.
Can't you imagine creating a function that enable us to initialize pdfcreator from an internal DEVMODE struct ?

Hi!

Please try to use UseScreenDC property (before BeginDoc).
How it looks now?

Ok, I'll try but here is my output on CoCreateInstance (before any BeginDoc):

'Builder.exe': Loaded 'C:devBuilderPDFCreatorPilot3.dll', Exports loaded.
'Builder.exe': Loaded 'C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSW32X863unidrvui.dll', Exports loaded.
'Builder.exe': Loaded 'C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSW32X863unidrv.dll', Exports loaded.
'Builder.exe': Loaded 'C:WINDOWSSYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSW32X863PCL5ERES.DLL', Binary was not built with debug information.

I think you load some printerdrivers on init....

Hi!

And do you have real problem? Library isn't work on machines without any printer?

The developer who was written this part of library is away now, I will be able to reply in details not before the next week.

Why do you spend time for that if you do not need these informations ?

Hi!

With UseScreenDC == true really any printer is not using, so in spite of your message I ask do you have real, not theoretical, problems. We tested it on machines without any printer installed and it works ok.
Concerning problem with using of some printer dlls I can tell only that we resolve it in the future.

It was just a suggestion.
When you get a network printer that is really slow, imagine the time needed to start a pdf printing....

Hi!

We resolved it, now default printer uses only if it is expected patently. This correction will be included in the next release.
