PDF build error when using TopLeaf (build_topleaf.xml:162: PDF creation failed)March 19, 2020 at 5:45 pmParticipants 2Replies 2Last Activity 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Using XMetal 13.0 with TopLeaf 8.0.015 Professional
My PDF transformations through TopLeaf suddenly started failing. The logs appear normal until the very end when this appears:
[echo] Generating PDF in i:/mse/technical communications/library/awd classic workspace/sources/pdf_out/awd_user_fax_out_viewing_fax_status_20v1_pdf_2019_test.pdf
C:PROGRA~3SoftQuadXMetaLSharedDITA_OT3.0build_topleaf.xml:162: PDF creation failed
Total time: 24 seconds
I noticed in a previously successful PDF transformation, the logs includes [topleaf.makepdf] right before the build successfully completes:
[echo] Generating PDF in i:/mse/technical communications/library/awd design_communications_forms_models/source/pdf_out/awd10sp88_model_design_user.pdf
[topleaf.makepdf] PDF created: i:msetechnical communicationslibraryawd design_communications_forms_modelssourcepdf_outawd10sp88_model_design_user.pdf
Total time: 9 minutes 46 seconds
I can't find anything online about this issue. Any suggestions? I can generate other outputs, but nothing through the TopLeaf transform. I get the same error each time when trying with many different maps and topics.

Here is our developer's reply…
As I know, topleaf pugin is third party commercial software we don't have it in house.
After build failed
Send this file:
Probably under directory
should be subdirectory probably containing “topleaf” word , send this directory as well
Steps that I would do.
1. REBOOT SYSTEM
2. Uninstall topleaf plugin
3. Remove from C:PROGRA~3SoftQuadXMetaLSharedDITA_OT3.0 – topleaf related files some of them
– C:PROGRA~3SoftQuadXMetaLSharedDITA_OT3.0plugins directory
4. Install topleaf plugin again
