Printing PDF documents in Citrix Presentation Server 4.0

Posted on 2006-03-21
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 installed on a Windows 2003 SP1 server.  I am unable to print anything with PDF.  The documents sit in the Adobe PDF Print queue stating error-printing.  

I am lost....Nothing from the Citrix website.

    I have seen this also but it seems to be a problem with Adobe and not citrix.  What version of Adobe are you using, and which printer? (i.e. the distiller or PDFWriter or something else).

    I assume you have this installed in citrix and aren't using a client mapped acrobat printer, right?

    I figured it out.  I had originally installed Adobe 6.0 Standard on the server via a Term Server session.  I went to the console, did an uninstall then reinstalled it at the console, and it works now.  The only thing that doesn't work is when a Citrix ICA client tries to create a PDF on the client's local drive.  Adobe states that this is not supported.

    Yes you are right.  If they want to do that have them create the PDF in citrix first, then copy/paste down to their local drive.
