[ERROR] Failed to get the Printer HDC from ‘\\URANO\COW1P09’ printer.


Using pdfprint into a server that doesn't have physically priters in it we receive an error and print is not spooled :

[ERROR] Failed to get the Printer HDC from '\\URANO\COW1P09' printer.

This happens for some printers but not all, that printers works if invoked from the same server that have physically queue defined


Hi, I found that pdfprint works also if remote printer is not added to server. It seems to have better results without connecting.


Thanks for your message, we suggest you may use IP address to point to the remote server directly, for example,

pdfprint.exe -debug -printer "\\\\COW1P09" D:\test.pdf

We hope the method of use the IP address to remote printer will work fine to you, you may give it a try.
