Error in API Dev Kit 26, Automate_Functions -> Do_Save_PdfFile


From the API 26 Development Kit example add-ons, the Automate_Functions project fails when performing "Do_Save_PdfFile". To be more specific, this method returns APIERR_REFUSEDCMD:


ACAPI_Automate (APIDo_SaveID, &fsp, &pdfPars);


Hi Gunners,


Are you running Archicad in Demo version? According to the documentation ( you'll need to run Archicad with a license to execute this function.

Thank you!
