7-PDF Printer - FAQ

During installation I see the following error message: “Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000bc8). Unable to find a core driver package that is required by the printer driver package”

This error occurs on Microsoft Windows Vista when you have a defective driver cache file. In this case, delete the file C:\Windows\inf\INFCACHE.1 and restart the installer.

How can I change the standard memory location (directory) to my “documents” folder?

Open the setting dialogue “Options”, alter the file path as desired with the available wild cards, such as <personal></personal>\<smarttitle></smarttitle>.pdf. The <personal></personal> wildcard automatically references your “documents” folder during PDF creation and saves the PDF there. You can also find the ‘last selected memory location’ option there and can activate/deactivate this as required.

I have entered watermark text in the print dialogue of the PDF printer. Why is it not shown in the PDF?

Watermarks are printed at a lower level or layer of PDF content. Some Windows applications, such as Internet Explorer, print a white background instead of a transparent background in the PDF document. This white background then prevents the watermark from being shown. In contrast, other programs, such as Microsoft Office, add a transparent background. The watermark is then visible.
