Issue with 'Save records as PDF' on Windows deployed FMS 16

this occurs with FileMaker Server 16, running on Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard.


A server script uses "Save records as PDF" to generate PDF files.

In two different cases I found that the script step returns error 800 (unable to create file on disk) when there are graphic objects on the print layout.

One of these layouts has two graphic objects, one is just a logo, the other one is a container field from a related table, it holds a barcode generated with the MBS plug-in and it is essential. If I remove the container field, the PDF is generated, but this is not an option.


When I run this script on the same machine with a FileMaker client (after changing the path for the PDF files to generate ;-) it runs flawlessly.


Running the script on FileMaker Server 16 on a Mac OS X server also works fine.


Can you reproduce  or maybe explain this behaviour?
