I am using Acrobat x Pro 10.1.4 and I am trying to convert 1000 PDF files to PDF/A 1b using Preflight in the batch mode. From my testing it seems that Preflight would only process first 255 files in that folder and that’s it. I have noticed that when Preflight successfully process 255 files, I see message, “Preparing Document”, then “Preflight”, then “Saving”, then it moves on to the next file and the process repeats itself. When it gets to 256th file that’s all it says is “Preparing Document” and moves to next one. When I check the PDFs only 255 are PDF/A 1b. When I manually remove PDFA/1b out of that folder and restart Preflight on the same folder, it will run through next 255 PDF and scan through the rest as before.
When I checked my environmental variable (D:\TEMP\Preflight Acrobat 10\Batch) folder during Preflight processing, I see folders with PDFs being created there, when it gets to 255 folders, no folders get created there and no more PDFs gets converted. When Preflight gets to the end of a job and gives me Job Completed message those temp folders get removed from there and I get a list of PDFs that didn’t get processed saying unable to open file. Why limited to 255?
By the way, I am running WIN7/64 3.2 Ghz quad with 6 GB RAM in VMware envirement. I have tried this on 3 other boxes and they all do the same.
Any help would be appreciated.
The most obvious reason the counter was probably created as a byte. As to needing more, we have the feature request form.
Michael, I already have a ticket opened with Adobe on this, are you suggesting this issue does sound like a glitch and in addition to my ticket I should fill out the feature request form to allow Preflight to process whatever its being given?
