For printing from Dynamics NAV, we are interested only in PDF Converter Printer Driver folder:
Click Start > All Programs > Accessories.
Right click on Command Prompt and select “Run as administrator”:
Go to the folder C:\PDF Converter\PDF Converter Printer Driver by typing command:
cd C:\PDF Converter\PDF Converter Printer Driver
Type in the command “install -u” (this will make sure that, if there were any previous versions of Amyuni PDF printer installed, they will get uninstalled)
To install new version, type the command “install”. This may take a few minutes. When install is finished, system will display a message saying “Printer setup succeeded”.
To check this, we can go to “Start > Devices and Printers” and we will see printer “Amyuni DF Converter”.
Right-click on the “Amyuni PDF Converter” and select “Printer Properties“:
Go to “About” tab and click on “…” button and enter your company name and your license activation code.
That’s it – Amyuni PDF Printer has been installed!
Tip: Let’s say you want to install Amyuni PDF Printer on several computers (you will need it installed on every computer from which you will be printing reports to PDF in Dynamics NAV). Is there a way of skipping the setup part? Of course, there is!
If you would go to C:\PDF Converter\PDF Converter Printer Driver and open “install.ini” file, you can define “YOUR COMPANY NAME” and “YOUR ACTIVATION CODE”. You can also change the printer name – instead of “Amyuni PDF Converter” you could call printer “Dynamics NAV PDF Converter”. Once the install.ini file is updated, when you run “install” command in command line, printer will be installed and setup automatically.
Next, we will have a look at how to test if Amyuni PDF Converter has been installed correctly.
