Microsoft document image writer

All of our MDI writers have all stopped working.  Up until about a month ago I could go into word and print to the microsoft office document image writer and choose mdi and I would get a nice MDI file to use in any office product.  Now when I save to that I get garbage.  Was this feature broken by some patch?  I've tried it on about 5 machines, all of which worked a few weeks ago and I get the same result from each.  I downloaded a MDI viewer to confirm that the output was garbage and it displayed the same ASCII garbage.  I tried adding this tool to a new machine that did not previously have it and I tried reinstalling it on a machine that currently wasn't not working.  Each with the same result.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try this, Microsoft admits there was a mistake made with MDI in Office 2003 SP3.

It turns out the microsoft document imaging system has now been broken into three parts.  In the past you could pick just the parent system. Now you must choose all both the OCR and the Image printer to get the mdis to work correctly.
