I have been using PrimoPDF for some time (years). From the beginning, I always get the same error message:
The string was not recognized as a valid DateTime. There is a unknown word starting at index 20.
I've uploaded a screen shot here:
The operation always seems to complete OK and the output looks OK to me.
Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a fix?
I found a couple of sites that suggest it has to do with the Windows date format. I tried changing the format and was able to change the error message, but not eliminate it. It seems to like the European order (dd-mm-yy).
This seems like a bug in PrimoPDF. It is not checking the Windows date setting before parsing the date. I would think there would be a Windows call that it could use to get the date in any format it needs.
My copy of PrimoPDF is years old. It doesn't report a version on the software itself, but in the Add/Remove Programs entry, it says version 5. It looks like the latest version is 220.127.116.11. Does anyone know if this fixes this problem?
I am reluctant to install the latest version on my old XP system. I rely on PrimoPDF quite a bit. I would hate to have it suddenly stop working.
Does anyone know of another comparable product. It doesn;t need to be freeware.
