I get no error at my end, appart from it being an educational version.  Ensure the DWG to PDF.pc3 file is for the current version of AutoCAD, and not pointing to an old version of this file.

PMP error.

If at any time you edited the list of available sheet sizes or you created a unique sheet size,

a PMP file is generated of the same name as the PC3 file. When moving (or renaming) the

PC3 file from one profile to another or to another workstation/user, one will get the PMP error.

Best thing to do is to leave well enough alone regarding tailoring the sheet sizes.

 

Start AutoCAD.

Command OPTIONS.

"Files" tab.

Expand "Printer Support File Path".

Expand "Printer Description File Search Path".

Take note.

 

Start your favorite file manager (not IE).

Verify the path noted above is there.

Verify the file inside has the same name as the PC3 file.

 

If not, do this:

Redefine the path to the desired PMP file by first highlighting the path, then select "Browse"

inside the OPTIONS dialog.

 

Or this:

Command PLOT.

Select the desired PC3 file.

Select the "Properties" button next to that drop down. A dialog will appear.

Redefine your custom sheet size here (or remove the one that has been defined).

Select the "Save As..." button.

Select the OK button.

-OR- Start Over:

Select the desired printer driver.

Select the "Properties" button.

Do what you need to do to create the PC3 file except custom sheet sizes.

Save as button.

OK button.

A possible simpler solution is to reset your settings to default. This can be done by closing AutoCAD, going to windows Start button > All Programs > Autodesk > AutoCAD 2013 - English > Reset settings to default.  You will be asked if you want to backup your settings, if you choose yes you will be asked to where to save a zip file to. It wil then begin to start AutoCAD at which point you will get a message saying configuring AutoCAD...

 

If this produces any errors then I recommend a re-install,  unless of course you have student restrictions on your computer  :smileysad:

I have tried all of the solutions that you guys have given me and nothing has worked.  

Can someone just export to a PDF so I can email it to my boss.

Hi,

 

>> Can someone just export to a PDF so I can email it to my boss.

Ok, find attached the PDF, but as I don't have the sheet-set-infos the fields are empty/not filled.
