Dear Mattewgems,

This error has been fixed now and I am giving you two solutions for this error.

Solution 1: Find settings.ini file in C:Program FilesBullzip folder, open settings.ini file in notepad and add the line into the settings.ini manually.


It will give you 600 seconds timeout, which is equal to 10 minutes and your files will be printed smoothly.

Solution 2:

1. Open notepad

2. Write in notepad file

[PDF Printer]
; Set Ghostscript timeout to 100 minutes

In the body, the spacing has to line up otherwise it don’t work. You had to manually add the spacing to make it work.

3. Save file as global.ini

4. Go to C:ProgramDataPDF WriterBullzip PDF Printer

5. Copy that global.ini file into Bullzip folder.

Now you should be able to print without getting the time out error message.

Hope this helps.
