I work for a company and we use your VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.7 application to convert PCL files into pdf’s. We pay for the gold service support.
This morning the conversion stopped working,
We usually use the application via a script using the following line to run the conversion, eventually the applications that runs the scripts times it out.
Set oShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
oShell.run "cmd /C ""C: & CD C:\Program Files (x86)\VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.7 & pcltool.exe -$ XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX \\EWACPA04\PCL2PDF\CA_Spool_PCL\VDEPROD_" &Sdate & """.pcl \\EWACPA04\PCL2PDF\PDF2PCL_PDF\*.pdf", 0, True
Set oShell = Nothing
I then tried to use the front end GUI to convert a file, this goes to 99% and stops and no PDF is produced, I’ve attached the log file from this attempt.
Could you please investigate, if you need any further information you can contact me today or a colleague of mine tomorrow?
This ticket can now be closed, after running the service in command prompt I got message
[Port : 61111] There has one instance is converting, we have to wait.
I left it retrying which cleared it and everything is now running as normal.
The PCL (Printer Command Language) format was first used in the 1980s by Hewlett-Packard inkjet printers for creating digital copies of printed documents and developed in time as an industry standard. It now continues to be used by various models of printers, including laser-jets. Files with this extension are somewhat similar with PostScript (PS), though they offer less features and are more difficult to open.
Users usually prefer convertingfor easier access and transferring options. With VeryPDF Converter, this conversion can be automated by activating the Watch Folders option.
