     OR

Error Messages with the Name Schubec or Ghostscript.

These error messages are specific to the program's internal PDF components.

Solution:

    Install the "E-Mail Fix" package.
    The download link for the E-Mail Fix can be found under
    "Free 3rd Party Software" at the bottom of our Download Page.
    Each computer using the program,
    including the network server, will require the E-mail Fix.

Note:

It is possible the program(s) may not immediately connect to the changes from the E-mail Fix.
You may need to Exit and Open the program more than one time.

Consider:

    Close all open programs and try Re-Starting each computer in the system.
    This can clear up a surprising number of issues.

Cause

    Copied to a different computer
    Installed on a Network (shared Folder), External Drive, or other device
    On a system upgraded to Windows 10

The PDF components (Schubec and GhostScript) do not copy.

What remains is a server issue.

     This is a hardware or other issue with your system.
