One of the common issues that users face is the user not being able to create PDF or send forms. This issue mostly occurs when you update your windows and some other Microsoft XPS report widget is appending in the framework or there is incorrect setting of the email.

The form is not sent because your QuickBooks Software is not able to create the required PDF files.

Reasons QuickBooks is not able to Create PDF

  • There is no PDF file component due to the improper installation of PDF converter.
  • Freezing of QuickBooks during the reconciliation of accounts.
  • The print driver host is not operating for the 32-bit application.
  • Error -41, -30, in PDF converter activation.

How to Resolve QuickBooks Cannot Send Forms or Create Pdfs?

1. Method One: You have to use the QuickBooks PDF and the Print repair tool.

  • First of all, download the QuickBooks repair tool software and run it.
  • Once the tool is successfully installed you need to start with the files with .pdf extension that were creating issues.

  • Then navigate to the file menu and select the Print option.
  • Next select XPS Document Writer and tap on the print button.
