I have an oki c9850 with EFI fiery system 8e Release 2, Version 1.1R_RDP (ODA).

Im told by oki they dont support ppml files. i thought all fiery systems were capable of importing ppml files, do i need to upgrade with impose or other software? what exactly is not able to handle ppml files, the printer, the rip, command workstation?

the oki came with CWS 4, although i downloaded CWS 5.
when click file then import it shows ppml as a supported file type, but when i try to open one it shows an error saying "ppml not supported"

any help would be great!

Most embedded (the "e" in "System 8e" stands for embedded) Fiery controllers do not support and thus, cannot process, PPML. Your RIP is no exception to this.

Because CWS is a generic interface for all Fiery controllers, it recognizes any file type which is supported by a Fiery controller. It is up to the specific controllers to alert the user whether or not a specific file type is supported.

In your case, since the system does not support PPML, your controller is displaying the correct "PPML not supported" error.
