    Problems printing large pdf file


      I have problems printing large technical documentation from pdf reader


      The document is about 650 pages, 260 MB

      Using adobe reader 9.3.0

      Printing to xerox 7435 with punch unit

      Printserver is win 2008 R2

      Client is win7 32 bit

      When using PS drivers, it is possible to print the documentation.

      Problem is that this wil take about 50 minutes to spool / RIP the document. Then it takes about 20 minutes to print.

      During te first 50 minutes te printer is completely locked for printing by other users.


      So I try to print via PCL

      When spooling document via PCL it wil take about te same time (estimated) but during the first 50 minutes the machine is not locked up for other printing jobs. So it enables me to get the document to the printer and use timed print or secure print to start the actual printing outsite working hours.


      Problem with PCL is that the spool file becomes much bigger.


      PS => 2,66 GB

      PCL => printing error after spooling 3,99 GB

      first I get: The document could not be printed

      second error: There were no pages to print


      I Tried both "Render print jobs on client computers" and rendering on the server.


      Stopping at 4 GB seems like a file size limitation

      How can I get passed this limitation???


      any help / ideas for testing would be nice!!
