I’ve got a strange problem with PE 5.3. I recently added an entirely new doctype to our custom DocTypes folder and an entry in the catalog file pointing to the new doctype. After restarting/rebooting the server, I’m able to successfully generate direct-to-PDF using our normal process for sending print jobs to PE. However, when I open the source XML file in PE Interactive (which opens the file without errors and points to the doctype in all session information variables) and try to Print Preview or Compose > PDF file, I get an error window with this message:
[A20448] Document type not installed on the PE server. Check the server’s catalog path setting.
Anyone know how to get past this? I can print preview and compose PDF with any of our previously existing doctypes – just not this new one.
Hmmm... That seemed to cure it. I don't understand why older doctypes worked with peservices set to on...
