Windows 7: PDFCreator Printer Properties: Can't "Run as User"

PDFCreator Printer Properties: Can't "Run as User"

Hi all!

I use PDFCreator, which is a neat and free piece of software. However, it has problems properly printing under some conditions. The easy fix is to open Printers, left click PDFCreator, pick "Printer properties", go "Ports", "Configure Ports", tick "Run as user".

Under XP, this fixed it all, with 7 I get the following error: "An error occurred during port configuration. Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000001)."

How can I bypass it?

Thanks!

Sorry, no... My problem is that I need to launch the application before I can print, which is bothersome. If the "Run as User" is checked, I can simply print and the application starts automatically.

Account "Roger" appears as "c:\users\user"
Hi all, I recently created a new user account on a win 7 home premium machine before I'd had much experience with win 7 (but years with 2000 and xp). Instead of users\Roger\ it created users\user which I now realise is not correct. (I didn't call my account "user", either, before you ask. :) )...
