I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 530,  loaded my programs from my rusty trusty XP machine and my ScanSoft PFD Create 4 wouldn't work.  Went online to Nuance,  their site told me to download new Vista-happy version.  Can't install it as it says I must uninstall old version first but old version refuses to go away.  I get an installer error 1722 each time.  I have uninstalled, re-installed, repaired numerous times,  I have tried uninstalling in Safe mode,  I have gone into Regedit and deleted the software folder under current user & hardware,  I have turned off Administrator controls, I have used the uninstall and/or repair and/or install on the original CD and all have the same result.... ERROR 1722  so it stops.   Can Anyone help me??????????

    not sure how you can get that one working, but if you would like a different free PDF creation tool
    cutePDF is a great low profile one that works just fine in vista 32 or 64
