Installing under Runtime solution

French user I bought the printerswitch plugin v2 and v3. If everything works when I use FileMaker Advanced I cannot use the print to pdf function in a runtime.
I looked your Wiki which says to install :
     the PrinterSwitch plug-in itself
    a folder ‘myFMbutler’ , containing the PDF printer driver components (this folder has been installed by the standard installer in your FileMaker Extensions)
I did so but I have always the error you can see on the screecopy
Hope in your quick help !

    Hi Noël,

    Are you using the runtime on the same PC that you used to create the runtime?

    And do you have the problem with PrinterSwitch 2 or 3? Please note that PrinterSwitch 2 and 3 use a different PDF driver, so they are not compatible with each other.

    Kind regards,
