PDF Maker uses MPDF as PHP class to generate PDF files from HTML. MPDF requires the mb_string module to be enabled (see http://uk.php.net/manual/en/ref.mbstring.php) which means that PHP>=4.3.0 will be required as a minimum, and PHP 4.3.0 to 4.3.3 need --enable-mbstring=all. For Windows users: Enable the extension(s) in php.ini you want to use by uncommenting the extension=php_*.dll lines in php.ini. This is done by deleting the leading ; from the extension you want to load and restart Apache. http://php.net/manual/en/install.windows.extensions.php // change the following line from ... ;extension=php_mbstring.dll // ... to extension=php_mbstring.dll
Please check your PHP variables. Our recommendation is to follow page: https://it-solutions4you.com/tipstricks/vtiger-system-requirements/orInstaller System Requirements
