Does anyone know of a color Windows driver that I can use to set up a Print to PDF printer share using Image? (No form, just passthrough PS printing.) I've tried several different drivers and am getting this error message:

I1007 : Error while converting to PDF : Error converting file: undefined
I1005 : Error while processing input directory; moving file to error folder: job132435.ps

Hi,
use the Digital Image action to pass pure PS jobs instead of PPImage.

Let us know the result.

Regards

I'm using a Windows Print Queue input with an HP Color LaserJet PS driver and with the Digital Image action, I get the following error message:

W3644 : Error while converting to PDF: Error converting file: undefined
ActionDigital: W1603 : Plugin failed

Ok,
this means you are getting a PS error of some sort, can you RIP the PS job with another RIP like Distiller?
I would also make sure that the driver is not configured to use any inputs, outputs and finishing needs.
If you are still unable to generate the PDF we will need to explore the PS stream and this means you will have to open an issue to submit the needed resources.

Hi,
I did a basic check and used the HP Color LaserJet PS driver and was able to create a PDF using didgital image and none as form choice.

regards

Yes, I was able to get it working yesterday afternoon (and typed my response but never hit submit.)

Thanks for your assistance.
