Are you able to save other docs as pdf in the 64 bit version?

This won't help but I would like to say that I am having the very same problem with SaveAs pdf datawindow method. Works perfect in 32 bit but not at all in 64 bit environment.

I have tried running the 64 bit Ghostscript utility gs906w64.exe in order to remedy the problem but SaveAS still creates an empty file in 64 bit windows environment.

Is the solution possibly getting 64 bit version of Powerbuilder? I came on this site today to post a question about this same issue and now I see that others are having the same problem.

Is there not a solution to this obvious limitation?

So you ran the 32 bit Ghostscript stuff with PB in windows 64 bit and got an empty file?

No I ran 64 bit gs906w64.exe in 64 bit environment and got an empty file.

Have you tried the 32 bit Ghostscript version?

Are you guessing or have you had experience with this problem? I truly want to believe that what you are telling me is true. Tell me you did this in another environment and it worked

Hey, do whatever you want.

Best of luck.

Thank you for your efforts - I will try (again) running the 32bit version in the 64 bit environment and let you know if it works.
