PDF Writer - Trouble Shoot Citrix Installations

In theory this product works well with Citrix. However, we often find that minor issues needs to be solved in some installation. This is often caused by the many different ways to configure and run a Citrix environment. Often, functionality is blocked by very strict security policies.

Problems running Ghostscript

You should check your security around your Ghostscript installation and fix any issues before you proceed.
