Ron's original comment about problems with emailing invoices was here:https://getsatisfaction.com/quickencommunity/topics/problem-emailing-invoices-in-new-version-of-quic...
Same problem, can't email invoices. I get Printer not activated,Error code -30. And, "the pdf file that you want to replace is in us by some other application. Please close application and try again." All that's running is Quicken. I've tried the validate and repair printer settings several times. It wants a quicken pdf driver. Where might that be? it all worked just fine with 2017.
Looks like we all missed his comment in the middle of an otherwise heavy message traffic.
Assuming that the Quicken PDF driver is properly installed and functions correctly ...
Have you tried printing a report to the Quicken PDF printer to verify that?
The folder to which the PDF file is written must not be accessed by any cloud backup software (e.g., Microsoft OneDrive, Dropbox) or any NAS backup server. "File in use" messages would be indicative of interference from another application.
Are you up-to-date on software updates? You should be running Q 2018 at Release R 8.8.

This is not for the faint of heart ... but it may getyour Quicken PDF printer working again.
Before you go through the entire process, read the document. Look for the Port Name instructions and ensure that the Quicken PDF Printer on your system uses Port = PDF1If that's already set on your system, perform the entire list of actions.
