"To resolve Error #1314 error, you'll need to elevate the rights of the account calling CreateProcessAsUser() with the "Replace a process level token" right. To do so, open the Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Local Security Policy and add the user account to the "Replace a process level token" right.

Sometimes, Windows system can’t map computer name to IP address properly, for example, the following command line may not work in computers,

pdfprint -debug -chgbin 257 -printer "\\verypdf-server\Xerox Global Print Driver PCL"  "c:\temp\verypdf.pdf"

however, after we change the “\\verypdf-server” to IP address, it does work,

pdfprint -debug -chgbin 257 -printer "\\192.168.1.10\Xerox Global Print Driver PCL"  "c:\temp\verypdf.pdf"

so, you should better use IP address to instead of computer name if your system can’t map from computer name to IP address properly.
