I got PDF995 to work. The key is permissions on the C:\pdf995 folder on
the Terminal services/Citrix server. It creates a temp file there (I gave my
TS users group write permissions to the folder) while it is working.

Cliff,

I ran into this myself. We looked into installing Acrobat on our Terminal
Server but to be compliant with licensing would have needed to purchase as
many licenses on the TS as we had users (25 in our case). Being the frugal
sort we are we ended up installing PDF995 a 'free with advertising' PDF
generator which works well for us.

If you install Acrobat on the client and access the TS via Citrix the
PDFWriter 'printer' should be autocreated on the Terminal Server in the ICA
client session. However, I was never able to get this to work. Another
reason why we went the PDF995 route.

Hey All

I just installed a new Windows 2003 Terminal Services server. How can
I print to PDF files from Vantage in a TS session ?? I've installed the PDF
writer on the server and client. When I print to a PDF it just hangs in the
print queue.
