SAPPDFPrint does not work due to patch level compatibility issues
SAPPDFPrint is used for printing PDF spool requests using front-end printing (access method G) or SAPSprint (access method S). PDFPrint is therefore installed on your local PC with method G, or is installed on your Windows SAPSprint print server when printing with method S.
The patch level of SAPPDFPrint you use is dependent on the SAPGUI patch level or the SAPSprint patch level. So when you print with method G, SAPPDFPrint needs to use the same bit version as your SAPGUI (32-bit) and also use a compatible patch level. In general it is recommended to use the latest patch version available of both SAPGUI and PDFPrint together.
Similarly, when printing through SAPSprint, SAPPDFPrint needs to use the same bit version as your SAPSprint (32 or 64-bit) and also use a compatible patch level. In general it is recommended to use the latest patch version available of both SAPSprint and PDFPrint together.

In SAPs notes I can not find a table where there is a match between the GUI patch level and SAPPDFPRINT or SAPSPRINT patch level. How am I suppose to figure out which patch to download. Downloading the latest patch is not always the right answer. I have done this before and it did not work. Is there a place where we can find out which version is the correct version per the GUI/patch level we have.
I think this is the question we have discussed in.
