how install formtek pdf rendering add-on ?

Hi, 

I'm trying to install formtek pdf rendering add-on but I broke my teeth on it ! 

I followed exactly the step by step installation pdf but it seems to not work 

1] I've tried to import 2 files, one in dxf and the other one in dwg 

the render is not working and I don't remember if it was there before but there is a button on the right that permit to download pdf rendition, plus there is a new tab "formtek" that just give the logo and the version on click

so I think that the plugin is properly installed but there is no rendering, on clickin on the download button, there is a message : Couldn't render PDF Rendition. PDF conversion many have timed out -- try again.

2] I don't have any access like in the doc to the formtek section in the admin console 

-> have you any clue to resolve this problem ?

Hello.

I don't know if you noticed, but the addon's Admin Guide says the Alfresco 5.0 is a requirement, and you are installing it in an Alfresco 5.2, so, you are not following the installation process step by step.

Try again with the right version, and then come back if you find other problems.

Ouf, I just looked at it, the 5.0 alfresco version is 2 years late ! Do you know if there is another solution to stay up to date ?

I don't think it open dwg files and it only runs on Alfresco 5.1 right ?
