For Terminal Server and Multi-User Systems:
- Go to Devices and Printers in Windows
- Remove any “Redirected” Sage PDF Converters. These will normally say something to the effect of Sage PDF Converter (Redirected) or Sage PDF Converter (From Session 9)

- In the Open field, enter Regedit and click OK.
- Expand HOTKEY CURRENT CONFIG key using the Plus symbol
- Expand Software Key
- Ensure that the Sage PDF Converter key is present and has 39 values associated with it. If there are no values or if there is only one value that shows “REG_SZ”, Uninstall then Reinstall the Sage PDF Converter on the Terminal Server.

If the issue persists after processing these steps, there is a possibility that the system does not like the target directory specified in the Paperless Office Maintenance Task. Verify that the Storage Location for the PDF Document(s) being printed is a location on the Sage 100 Application Server. If the issue persists, try pointing the PDF Directory to a folder within the MAS90 folder. Network permissions (especially with Sage 100 Advanced) can play a role in causing this issue.
