Issue Details

When attempting to use the DIAdem PDF Export printer I receive the one of the following errors:
  • Printer Not Activated, Error Code -30
  • Printer Not Activated, Error Code -41


  • Make sure your version of DIAdem is compatible with your operating system. You can find this out by referencing the readme of your DIAdem software.
  • The DIAdem PDF Export printer is only usable from the Report tab in DIAdem. If you are trying to use this printer from any other software, this message will occur.
  • Once you are have checked the compatibility, take the following steps:
    1. Close all DIAdem Versions
    2. Go to Devices and Printers in Windows Control Panel and delete the "DIAdem PDF Export" printer
    3. Relaunch DIAdem with admin rights
  • If this won't work start DIAdemStart.Exe on the DIAdem program path as Administrator
