PDF reports are blank

I'm setting up a demo / testing environment on my Windows 7 laptop.  I'm having an issue with the PDF reports being blank, but only seems to be with the Odoo 10 Community.  I install Odoo 10 Enterprise, load sample data, same everything as community, and it prints a PDF with data.  I've installed the latest version of wkhtmltopdf and that doesn't help.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have just had the same issue. 

Make sure you install wkhtmltopdf from wkhtmltopdf.org/downloads.

wkhtmltopdf -V

wkhtmltopdf 0.12.1 (with patched qt)

I have installed 0.12.1 per forum posts but it did not help.

I guess a more challenging questions is why pdf reports work in Enterprise and don't in community on the same computer.  I've searched the forums and other links on google, but can't find any method to this issue.

I've also tried this in Chrome and IE with the same results, so browser isn't the issue.



I'm not using Windows, but I'm pretty sure that there are many out there using wkhtmltopdf on Windows in the community version without any problems. Unfortunately I can't help any further.

No problem. Yes, there were quite a few files to pick from. I made sure to pick the correct version and OS. Just odd that it runs on Ent and not on community. Thanks for responding.

You should not install the latest version of wkthmltopdf, but only the recommended one.
