Adobe v6 on Windows Server 2003

Howdy, I have at least two clients now that can't print to Adobe v6 running on Windows Server 2003 SP2 fully patched. Adobe has all patches as well. I also did everything here:
I also removed all ports, printers and drivers from the machine including removing them from the registry and spools folder.
I spent 5 hours uninstalling, reinstalling etc. The only thing I haven't done is rebuild the server which I have no plans to do. Since this is occuring on more that one machine I'm betting a recent MS patch has hosed things up but I need a fix.

  • Adobe Acrobat X on Server 2003 (using remote desktop services)

    Hi guys,
    I need to purchase a copy of Adobe Acrobat for Windows Server 2003 for use in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, as well as everyday Acobat read/write tasks. There will be about 4 or 5 simultaneous users connecting to the server using RDP (via Windows Vista and 7).
    My question is, will a single copy of Adobe Acrobat X Standard suffice or work properly on Windows Server 2003 for all users?
    I can't seem to find any information on Adobe Acrobat X and terminal services (or Remote Desktop Services).
    Hope I've made sense, and any help will be appreciated

    What Word prompts when user attempts to login with the original account? Any error messages?
    Since the feature will work if you create a new account, have you ever compared the property of these two accounts? Maybe the security or permission setting during the creation process?

  • Print pdf file directly from a folder, Adobe Reader X in  Windows Server 2003

    In previous versions of Adobe Reader we were able to print pdf files groupwise directly when selected in a folder.
    Now I've installed Reader X on the Windows Server 2003 environment. Logged in as administrator I can still select <Print> by selecting the right mouse button in a folder. Logged in as a user, this is not available.
    I checked user-rights and permissions and made sure they have full control.
    Someone who can help us in this matter?

    Thanks for your reply.
    The file menu doesn't show the print option either. We used to work this way, after installing the 9.0 and Reader X version, this option has disappeared from both the File menu and the right mouse button. For other filetypes, for example Excel the Print option is still available and works properly. Logged in as administrator on the serverconsole, there is no problem. So it seams to be something specific to pdf-formats in a server 2003 environment. The userrights are all set on full control (same as administrator).
    Thanks again

  • Cannot print to PDF Printer in Windows server 2003 x64 (Adobe 9 STD)

    Hi everyone,
    I'm running into a very odd issue. We are using Citrix Presentation Server 4.5 in our environment. Recently, I install the x64 bit version of Citrix on top of Windows Server 2003 x64.
    The problem that we are experience right now is that when user open a WORD or EXCEL document and try to print to PDF. The SAVE AS windows shows up to allow users to save, but nothing happens afterward. In another word, no PDF file is created.
    However, if I ask the user to right click on the file (in windows explorer) and choose Convert to PDF, then the conversion go through.
    Do you know a fix for this?

    You might read the EULA and confirm the issue I have mentioned. I might not be correct in my estimate, but just gave a sounds like opinion. If it is a violation, then removing it is wise. Typically, Acrobat must be installed on each individual machine. There are multiple license options and server options, but you would need to contact Adobe for more information on those areas. Hope you can get them to talk to you in such a case.

  • Adobe Flash Encoder on Windows Server 2003 and SDI inputs

    Has anyone out there successfully installed and run the Adobe

    Also, will the Flash Encoder accept audio and video sourced
    from an Osprey 2000 capture card using an SDI input?

    Does anyone have any alternate I/O solutions for inputting
    Composite, Component, SDI, XLR? I've beel looking for a rack

  • Is Windows Server 2003 R2 Entreprise Edition Service Pack 2 supported?

    I tried to install ColdFusion 9 but wasn't able to finish.
    My OS is  - Windows Server 2003 R2 Entreprise Edition Service Pack 2

    Here is what I read from the page:
    Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Professional with Service Pack 3;
    Windows 2000 Server, Advanced Server, or Datacenter Server with Service Pack 3;
    Windows Server® 2003 Web, Standard, or Enterprise Edition with Service Pack 1 and R2;
    Windows Server 2008;
    Windows XP Professional or Home Edition; or Windows Vista® with Service Pack 2
    So, it seems the SP2 of the Microsoft Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition is not supported.
    Is it true?

  • Flex and Windows Server 2003 and MSSQL

    Hi everyone,
    I tried to connect to MSSQL using PHP. I did not get any
    error message but the only problem is when I try to test the
    problem, I get this error message. Everything works fine on my
    local computer "developer", but when I try to program and test on
    my Windows Server 2003, I get this error message:
    ReferenceError: Error #1069: Property loginsuccess not found
    on String and there is no default value.

    Can someone please help me, I really need to figure this out
    for my company.

    a string value is being read checkLogin() when its expecting
    an object with property loginsuccess.
    maybe its a typo or something in your code.
    for example you may have place:
    var.loginsuccess == "loginsuccess";
    in which it should be:
    var == "loginsuccess";

  • Issues with creating PDF's (Acrobat 8.1.6. and 9.1.3) in Windows Server 2003 (32 bit) and Windows XP (64bit)

    We have a report package that generates customised reports
    We generate the PDF's by simply "printing" to the Adobe PDF printer
    In Windows XP Pro (32 Bit) the report creates the PDF perfectly
    In Windows Server 2003 (32 Bit) or Windows Xp Pro (64 Bit) the PDF is created 90% perfect but some of text has slipped on the page.
    Whilst we are looking into the report writer (Dev Express) I would like to rule out any Acrobat issues.
    With thanks

    I think it will work fine if you use the "Enterprise" authentication option.  It may have dependencies on 32 bit components.  So, that's why we must run IIS in 32 bit mode even though it's on a 64 bit OS.  That means CR supports 64 bit OS systems only if you bring down other components that CR uses to 32 bit levels.  I'm not sure if that is considered "full support". 
    We are trying to use the LDAP authentication option, but that tab is disabled.  Other tabs such as Active Directory and WinNT are disabled as well.  There maybe another component that we must bring down to 32 bit processing.
    Is there a way to enable the LDAP authentication configuration tab?

  • Acrobat 8 Professional and Windows Server 2003 R2 Issue

    Our customers using Adobe Acrobat 8 Professional on Windows server 2003 R2 SP2. It works some period of time but then application stops working with this error and cannot start anymore:
    Faulting application Acrobat.exe, version, faulting module Checkers.api, version, fault address 0x000021a2.
    What can be the problem? There is nothing in the knowledgebase.

    Hello jordixip,
    You can connect your Mac to Terminal Services using Remote Desktop Connection Client . You need a license, the client software, and turning on the appropriate bits on the server. It is in Micro$oft-ese, but the overview is here.

  • Outlook 2007 PDF preview on Windows Server 2003?

    Simple question. Does the new (Reader 8.1) PDF Preview feature for Outlook 2007 work in Windows Server 2003? Or is it only for XP and Vista? The patch notes strongly suggest the latter, but in other places (such as a blog on this site) there are notes explicitly stating that the feature should work in server operating systems.
    We happen to be running Citrix (PS4.5) on this server as well, but I'm not convinced that's material: the feature doesn't work running Outlook on the server's own console.
    When I attempt to preview a PDF in Outlook 2007, I am told, "This file cannot be previewed because of an error with the following previewer: Adobe PDF Preview Handler".
    Before I go much farther with troubleshooting this, can anyone confirm firsthand that PDF previewing works in Outlook 2007 on Server 2003?

    I was using Adobe Acrobat Professional 8.1.2 and Outlook 2007 on Server 2003 SP2 and the Adobe PDF Preview Handler worked.
    Unfortunately, it stopped working after some time and I'm pretty sure I did not make any changes to the system. However, I did try to uninstall, reinstall and update Adobe Acrobat but still, it does not work.
    Any ideas why this is happening how to resolve it?
    Many thanks.

  • I am trying to remote into a Windows Server 2003 from a Windows 7 machine and having issues

    I am trying to remote into a Windows Server 2003 from a Windows 7 machine.  It says "The terminal server has exceeded the maximum number of allowed connections".
    My first stop in trying to solve this problem was here:
    And it says:
    [INDENT]This problem happens because Windows only allows two remote terminal services connections when you are in administrative mode, and you’ve either got two people already on that server, or more likely, you’ve got a disconnected session that still thinks
    it is active.
    The problem with this error is that you have to actually get on the server console to fix the problem if the server isn’t in a domain. ([B]If you are in a domain, then just open Terminal Services Manager and log off or disconnect the sessions[/B])[/INDENT][/I]
    So it seems to suggest that all I have to do really is to run the  Terminal Services Manager but I cannot find it.
    This web site from [URL=""](click here)[/URL] says all I need to do is first execute "mstsc /
    admin" from the command line.  But, when I do that, I get a message when I try to remote to the server, that says this: "To log on to this remote console session, you must have administrative permissions on this computer".
    So, what now?  What do you suggest?

    Hi Bobby,
    Yes, it is by design. By default, Windows Server only accepts two concurrent administrative sessions (Administrative Mode). It means that only two administrators can work on the server at
    the same time.
    If you would like more concurrent sessions, you need to purchase RDS CALs, install Terminal Services related server roles with proper configurations on the server.

  • Windows 7 x64 can't read/install any printer drivers from Windows Server 2003 x64 (AMD64 folder and HP Deskjet 855c)

    I read the thread Widows 7 printer
    HP deskjet 855c driver about possible installation of HP855c drivers onto Windows 7 x64 from "Windows Server 2003 x64" CD but I didn't have enough luck to succeed with doing it on my laptop. That thread appears to be dead now
    as it is marked "Answered", so I'm asking for help here. I have Toshiba Satellite P500 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit ( 
    Let me tell you first that I don't have access to Windows Server 2003 x64 or XP Pro 64 CD's. However I did some research online, which eventually forced me to learn about the "file sharing". After extensive search I was able to get the copies
    of AMD64 folders from Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard x64 with SP2 and
    XP Pro 64. The reason that I went also after XP Pro was because I thought that the extra wording "R2 Standard x64 with SP2" in description of "Windows Server 2003" did not reflect the exact name provided by poster
    Alan. I couldn't find just "Windows Server 2003 x64" (does it matter?).
    Anyway, I followed first the drill with running "printui /s /t2" and disabling UAC, and then in both cases I was able to locate the
    NTPRINT.INF file ( - this image is from XP Pro AMD64 folder) but each time when I
    attempted to install the driver, I got the same message stating:
    "The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software drive for your device. If the folder contains the driver, make sure it's designed to work with Windows for x64-based systems." (
    Why aren't there x64 drivers?
    During several installation attempts I had the printer connected to or disconnected from my laptop. It didn't make any difference. I must add that for this purpose I had to use different cable than the original one designated only for the
    Parallel port in my old desktop with Windows XP. My new laptop with Windows 7 x64 came only with 3 USB ports (plus 1 HDMI and 1 Serial). Because of that situation I bought in advance a new printer cable called “USB to 36-pin Parallel Port Adapter
    Cable” ( I'm not sure, if it will work until I can install the printer.
    Besides, nobody talked about this issue yet. I was also playing with the port choices in "Add printer" step; changing from default LPT1 to USB001 with the same negative results.
    I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I was very hopeful after reading positive "case closed" notes there.
    Can anyone help me here, maybe by making the necessary files available for download? I'm willing to pay for such assistance or make a donation, if necessary. Seriously. Judging by the large number of views of the original
    thread, one could assume that there is a potential demand for such service. It would be more human to pay few bucks for a few driver files than $900 for the whole Windows Server 2003 x64 CD, no? Can Microsoft accomodate me/us, please? :)
    P.S. I was advised to come for help here from

    I have my HP 855c/driver working on Win 7 Ultimate x64. I used the 'printui /s' procedure and 4 files described above with some minor changes.
    I pulled WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB914961-SP2-x64-ENU.exe down from the Microsoft website. Running the file causes the exe to unpack into a temp folder at the root drive. A 'Setup Error' message box is displayed once the file is run. I left this
    message box up until I copied ntprint.inf,, and from the temp folder.
    I copied from a Windows XP Pro disc. I also needed amd64\stdnames.gpd which was already in my Windows 7 c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\x64\3 folder.  
    I created a folder with the 5 files (ntprint.inf,,,, and amd64\stdnames.gpd). This is my 'Have Disc' folder. 
    I followed the 'printui /s' instructions, first changing the permissions mentioned above and then installing the driver. Next I followed the instructions to add a printer from Control Panel 'Devices and Printers' - 'Add Printer', choosing to 'use an existing
    driver' when installing the HP 855c.
    I used a slightly different ntprint.inf, size 1570418. The readable contents of ntprint.inf is as follows. Notice the line '' is not included. I tried using the 1570468 version of ntprint.inf; when I did I received an incompatibility
    message (probably the same one mentioned above).
