I wish use a node "finishing bindery" as FF connect with FF core 3001 and I never receive JDF file in the folder used for Ultimate bindery. .
I get an error message (in french): Le format de la chaine d'entrée est incorrect.
Please follow the standard support path for this issue so it can be handled properly.
Just a precision,
We can't create the JDF only with a FRENCH configuration
2008 R2 French server or
2012 French server
Installation FF Core in French langage
With a US English installation all is ok with the JDF.
