Cannot run/reinstall Calendar Creator on latest WIN 10

Calendar Creator 10 Deluxe returns the following when attempting to create PDF.

The Calendar could not be converted to PDF. You can try:

Deleting the “Broderbund PDF Converter from your “Printers and Faxes” settings window

2. Attempting to repair the PDF converter by using the “Add or Remove Programs” control panel and selecting  “Calendar Creator”

3. Trying again. —-This does not work after 2 retires.

I am running Windows 10.



Error Messages:

Error opening HKLM with all access - setting up the Registry!

Error attempting to open with write access one or more Configuration files for Hashtag!



Reinstall from CD returns: “Windows can’s install the Amyuni Document Converter 2.10 kernel-mode print driver. To obtain a driver that is compatible with the version of windows you are running, contact the manufacturer.

Seems strange as this version of CC 10 was previously installed on this PC - perhaps WIN 10 update have done me in.

I understand that the latest version of Creator Calendar will not open/print CC version 10 files.

So, any suggestions how. To proceed?

I would recommend getting a newer version of Calendar Creator. Since the PDF function is integrated, trying to upgrade just that one piece isn't a good idea
You seem to be saying that the Calendar Creator program itself still works; but, the Amyuni Document Converter does not.  Version 10 is very old and the driver models changed beginning with Windows Vista so I am not surprised that it is broken.
Why don't you add another PDF printer that does work?
CutePDF is free and adds a printer named CuteWriter which works with all of your software:
