We generate reports from a planned task and print to the Acrobat PDF writer. Its no problem to run it without interaktion from a session.

If I start it by planned tasks on a w2k server, the printer hangs and a popup can be found in the event log saying that an error has occured:

Acrobat PDFWriter Error: Acrobat PDFWriter has encountered an error in its programming. We apologize and ask your help in troubleshooting the problem.

Please make a note of the kind of document you were printing, programs you were running, and steps you took before the error, along with this message:

PDFWriter 5.0   File umpd.c   Line 350

I start with the same user as i test it with interaktion. The user can run as service ...

Can anybody help?

I solved the problem myself - it can't be done with the writer. I used a third party lib and the distiller (under http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/attac-cg/acgsoft.htm)
