Hi, several of my clients are having issues printing from adobe reader since either reader was updated or a windows update was installed.  Not very helpful errors.  The document looks like it will print, gets to about 84% flattening then 2 errors first one says The document failed to print.  2nd error says An error occurred while printing the document.  For one client these documents were created using DocsCorp pdfdocs 4.5 if that helps.

Only affecting adobe reader, can print using other pdf software.

Operating system is Windows 10 1709 64 Bit.

thanks in advance

Matt

Hi Mattmnc,

Thanks for sharing the information. Could you also confirm what is the exact version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC your clients have installed?

Acrobat Reader>Help>About Acrobat Reader and also check if the application is up-to-date or not so open Acrobat>Help>Check for update.

You may refer to the help document Troubleshoot PDF printing in Acrobat and Reader  and follow the steps to see whether the printer's drivers are up-to-date or not?

Regards,

Akanchha

Hi, I have just tried printing to Microsoft print to PDF and it also fails at the same place during the "flattening" process.  The document gets created as a 0 byte corrupted pdf doc so does not look like a printer driver issue.

Here is an example of a file that will not print.  Dropbox - Test.pdf

Hi MattmNC,

I apologize for the delay in response to your query.

The document that you have shared above, we have tested the same at our end. Tried to print the file and it was printed successfully.

The issue is not reproducible at our end and the version of Acrobat Reader DC is the latest one 2018.09.20050.

To get the root cause of the problem, we need more information from your side. For more information, you may check private message.

Hi, sorry, still same issue here, also just tried another colleagues computer.  Acrobat reader is installed using defaults, running windows 10 64bit fully patched on HP Probook.  12Gb Ram, 250Gb SSD HDD, printing to networked Fuji Xerox printer, also tried testing to printing to Microsoft print to PDF.  Seems to get stuck on about page 10 while in the flattening phase.

Hi Matt,

We apologize for the delay in response, and thanks for sharing the further information. After our previous discussion we have a latest patch released for Acrobat/Reader which is DC Feb 2018 (18.011.20038), did you also check with the latest version?

If yes, then what is the exact error you get during print with the latest version? As with this latest release the error message shouldn't be same.

Can we have the screenshot? https://forums.adobe.com/docs/DOC-7043#jive_content_id_How_do_I_attach_a_screenshot

Regards,

Akanchha

Same error, same screenshot.

Since my last update I have bought a brand new laptop, set it up, installed acrobat reader and just done the test and same error again so definitely an issue with adobe acrobat. Tried a different pdf viewer and no issues.

Maybe acrobat doesn’t link New Zealand regional settings or New Zealand time zone?

Hi there,

I have almost exactly the same issue as MattmNC. I get exactly the same two error messages as in his original post. But in my case it seems to make no attempt to 'flatten' the document at all. The errors just come up immediately.

It's not a problem with the file - it prints just fine from my wife's computer.

It's not a problem with the printer - I've tried on two printers with identical results (and those printers are happy to print from other programs on my computer, and from my wife's computer).

I checked for updates on Adobe Reader DC and it said I was all up to date. I ran the Repair Installation, but still no joy. I reinstalled Adobe Reader DC anyway, just to be sure. Still getting the same error messages. Here's a screenshot in case it's helpful.

Has anyone reached out to you brenb18624018 regarding steps for further troubleshooting?  I'm having this issue as well, but can't find any type of troubleshooting other than "basic troubleshooting", which hasn't helped at all.

I have been having the same issue, tried everything but it will randomly happen with some blueprints that get sent in.  Im guessing adobe has no fix yet since admin seemed to put the blame on the user even though there are endless forum entries with this exact issue.  Please take this issue seriously and find a real fix for us, it is clearly not on the user's end.

Thanks
