Post subject:  Message "There is no default printer currently selected" when clicking the button "Report"

Message en français: "Aucune imprimante par défaut sélectionnée".

Sorry, this sometimes arises even if you have correctly installed printers (it is a Windows problem), and we don't know why.

You can try to download the free tool PDFCreator (to be installed as a printer):
http://www.pdfforge.org/products/pdfcreator
and select it as default printer. To my knowing this works in any case.

And after that every printer may again be recognized as default printer.
Mysteries of Windows...

This error can also arise when printing a PDF.

The first thing to check is to verify that PDF Creator Version 1.7.3 is installed and configured as described in PVsyst help in Technical aspects > Printing > PDF file generation.

The second check is to make sure you have selected "PDFCreator" Printer in PVsyst Print Setup and that Printer "PDFCreator" is listed in your Windows printers as showed in the attached screen captures:

Finally, if your PDF printer is correctly selected then check your Windows printer configuration. Here is a link to Microsoft support article related to this error:
