WordPerfect - Publish to PDF application error

When a user tries to Publish to PDF, an application keeps occurring, and it closes out of WordPerfect.  This only occurs when the destination directory is four or more levels deep.

Any ideas what causes this?  No luck looking in Corel's knowlegebase, or on Adobe's site.

We're using WordPerfect 9, SP4, and Windows NT, SP 6a.

I can give you a free workaround.  There is an office suite called EasyOffice.  It writes to PDF quite well.  You should be able to download it from www.download.com

Another workarounf is to just create the destination at the root and move it wherever you want.  Maybe that is the best option.

Due to security concerns in this office, the free suite is not an option.

We are currently using workaround #2, to create elsewhere and then move it.

Adobe Acrobat is not unreliable. You can view the Adobe Support  at ttp://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/2b13e.htm for the cooltype.dll fixes and a similar problem like yours has been addressed in http://www.the-it-mercenary.com/forums/Windows98/posts/3045.html.

An alternative
--------------
You can try PDFMaker for Word. You can have a Demo version at ftp://ftp.docauto.com/MakePDFDEMO.exe. This program is an add-in for Microsoft Word 97, 2000, or XP/2002 that allows Word documents to be converted to PDF format WITHOUT Adobe Acrobat. Supports encryption security for PDF files so you can prevent copying, modifying, printing, and other infringements. One-click convert to PDF and attach to e-mail message versions also available. Also includes 10+ levels of graphics compression, conversion of web hyperlinks, multilingual support, TrueType font embedding, web optimization and much more.

Hope it will work for you now.

coolsumu,

The Adobe link you provided isn't the same problem.  Our problem only occurs when publishing to folders nested four (or more) levels deep.  The file will publish fine to, as an example, a destination like

H:\Documents\Adobe Files\Frank Johnson.  

But a Dr. Watson error will be visited on us if we merely change the destination to

H:\Documents\Adobe Files\Frank Johnson\March 2003 Reports

***

The second link that you provided (to the IT Mercenary) is invalid.

***

As for the last option, we are using WordPerfect 9, and do not have any Microsoft Word products.

Thanks for the input though,

yazooka
