    Adove installed on Citrix server

      I installed Adobe ver 6.0 on Citrix-Metaframe server. The first time it worked fine, so if a user access WORD they can convert the document to PDF file.
      Now, (just one week later) nothing works. The error is that the document cannot be printed and that is it. I have not been able to correct the error, therefore the users can read PDF documents, but they cannot create PDF documents.

      Am I doing something wrong?
      Thansk before hand for any help

          Had the same issue and it was related to the console not being logged on. Try logging into the Console as an Admin, then test the PDF creation from a Citrix session.

          The fix we've put in is to run a service on the server that starts distiller on boot up. This works fine - the article covering the steps is in this forum somewhere.

            6) Log in as that startup account in step 5), launch distiller and configure appropriate watch folder. Afer verify watch foder work, exit Distiller and startup the service.
