Windchill Publishing - End job error

Hi,

I created publish rule for generating PDF files from DRW. It works on my local Windchill with no errors but on clients server, I have this error (other) in job monitor:

 It should be generating PDF in post publish into the direct folder but it returns an error. I don't know if that is some problem with Creo? Thanks for help

Re: Windchill Publishing - End job error

Sounds like its trying to create viewables for the files generated from your rule, as this the case its worth adding a few additional lines to your xconf file like below

 

    <Property name="worker..DWG" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>
    <Property name="worker..TIF" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>
    <Property name="worker..TIFF" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>
    <Property name="worker..GIF" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>
    <Property name="worker..JPG" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>
    <Property name="worker..JPEG" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>
    <Property name="worker..PNG" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>
    <Property name="worker..PDF" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>
    <Property name="worker..DXF" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/wvs.properties" value="DUMMY,preconverted=true"/>

Has anyone had an idea what happened? Job Monitor in attach. 

Re: Windchill Publishing - End job error

Are you trying to create a viewable of a PDF with Creo?

Re: Windchill Publishing - End job error

Sorry but I don't really understand your question. I have a publish rule that generates pdfs from drw file as additional files in checkin.

Re: Windchill Publishing - End job error

site.xconf right? Should I restart windchill after that?  

Re: Windchill Publishing - End job error

Yes you can add to the site.xconf and you will need to restart after. Please note that wvs.properties location is different in earlier versions of Windchill so check first that is the correct location

Re: Windchill Publishing - End job error

OK thank you for help. BTW my rule doesn't work on client server. It doesn't generate any files it's only published checkin cad nothing more. It's weird because they are no sign of it in monitor logs, trail etc. about this publish rule. Maybe publish rules are disabled on this machine? Is any way to check that? I recall that it works on my local machine. 

Re: Windchill Publishing - End job error

Check that you have enabled the a rule for the application, look at help centre for more details
