Currently wasting time trying to make PDFs using Flashpaper 2. I have been using this software (part of Macromedia Studio 8) for years, but ever since upgrading to Windows 7 (64 bit) and Office 2010, I cannot make PDFs. The Add In installs, but the Flashpaper printer does not install. I have both fixes here (http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/670/2fc670f6.html), no success.

I have tried various trial PDF converters and they all seem to hang on the "printer" element of the Flashpaper 2 process.

I have also tried on Windows 7 (32 bit), got a FlashPaper printer installed, but the conversion process just didn't work.

Is there something in Windows 7 that blocks the Flashprinter from installing or when installed, from functioning?

I have seen this is a common problem, with many people having to go back to XP to make their PDFs, which seems ridiculous. Wasn't Windows 7 marketed as a different beast from Windows Vista, where all your old programmes and devices that ticked along happily on XP should just "work".

As a plan B, anyone know of any decent software for converting Word 2010 documents to PDF on Windows 7?

Thanks for any advice

There is something called the PDf addin for word. You can save a document as a PDf by going to save as, and then clicking on PDf as the filetype. Just follow the prompts. The PDf file will be just like any other searchable document, but it'll just be fixed so that no one can make any edits or changes to it.
