  1. Automation Engine version 12.2

    The PPD needs to be placed in this folder on the Automation Engine PC - x:\Esko\bg_data_custom_v010\dat\printers


    Then go to windows task manager (right click on Task Bar and choose "Start Task Manager).

    Go to Processes tab. Search for ppdsrv.exe and stop this process.

    Once you click on the "Export to PS" ticket the ppdsrv process will relaunch.

    You should now see the ppd in the list at the bottom.
