Windows 7: Can't Save As PDF in Office 2007

Can't Save As PDF in Office 2007

I downloaded the addon tool to save files in Office 2007 as PDF formats. I have successfully done this in Vista but can not perform this task in Win 7.

I'm not sure if this is a compatibility issue between Win 7 and this feature or it is specific to Office 2007, regardless of the OS. I'll yield to your wisdom.

Here are screen shots of 2 error messages, one from Word and the other from Powerpoint that I captured.

Thank you for your comments and suggestions.

Wow, that is weird..I always look over the forums to see what problems other people are having, and i try them out to see if i have the same problem. I too have the "save as PDF/XPS" file, and Office 2007, but i don't have the problem you do. Mine come out just fine. It may be something on your system causing this error.


Just a thought.....

Thanks for the response, I wish I could pin point the problem. But you've confirmed it is not a multiple user problem but somewhat isolated to me. It works fine in Vista, but just can't get it in Win 7.

So, I'll try Microsoft and see if they have an answer.

On your screenshots it appears you are saving to the standard user directory.
Did you try saving to different folders as well?
Since I took ownership of users because of problems with other apps, some rights / privileges issue would be the only thing I can think of atm. And well, in that case I wouldn't get your error of course...

Killercat, I tried saving it to the desktop and to the Public directory and still got the same message.

So do you think it has something to do with the Win 7 privileges?

Do you have any other PDF printers in your system? Check the Start Menu - Devices and Printers.

The only printers shown in that option are Fax, HP PSC 1310 Series (my default printer) and MS XPS Document Writer.
