Can you turn on some more logging, and give us the 'Launching...' line please?
In 'Central control' - 'Configuration' - 'Configure Central and Agents...' - 'Central Process'
Set 'Message display' to '-10'. Stop and start the central service.
Look at the parameters in the line after 'Launching' it is the exact command that the central service runs to start the print agent.
BTW, if the error message is actually saying '..etc/exprint[...]' the answer might lie in a missing slash between '..' and 'etc'. (?).
Thank You for your reponse. Unfortunately I don't know how to do this. I'm working on the AS/400 and within the Central main menus, I don't see any option that would allow me to do this.
Here is the whole error log however. Does this help?

Thank You in advance for your help.
Yes, that helps. Here you have the 'Launching...' log line, saying that it is starting the agent 'jfmerge', and that this print agent should load the design file 'PICKMK.mdf' from the folder '..etc/exprint/forms' (-afp). I believe the error is a lack of slash between: '..' and 'etc' -> '../etc/'.
Launching task '"/QOpenSys/usr/local/adobe/central/bin/jfmerge" PICKMK.mdf /QOpenSys/usr/local/adobe/central/server/data/OE341PR224890OE_DELYADVMKLINE0000 01.dat -j -l -apr -allstdout -asl1 -amq0 -ams -m1T -z"jflp 'MILIVPL11',p" -w"' '" ../etc/extrans/tdf/DELYADV.tdf -afp..etc/exprint/forms/ -aii/QOpenSys/usr/local/adobe/central/server/etc/jfmerge.ini'.
I'm not at all familiar with AS/400, so I don't know your specifics of your interface. If you can open your print agent's inifile (-aii) '/QOpenSys/usr/local/adobe/central/server/etc/jfmerge.ini' you'd probaly find a setting for 'FormPath' with the incorrect path.
OR if you find how to change your menus, look for File locations, Form files.
OR the -afp path may be set in your Job Management Database (file 'jfserver.jmd').
Try this and tell us if it helps...
Thank You. Such a small thing, a "/" but it made all the difference. The form printed!
I do however need to now tweak my .mdf and my .tdf forms because the data on my form isn't quite right.
Thank You for your help Vegard.
