I'm using PDFCreator running with XP. I've installed PDFCreator 0.9.8, when I use then PDFCreator printer nothing happens, after few minutes, PDF Reader is launched (I've tried with Adobe reader and Foxit) and I get the error 407. This pb happens only the first time I use PDFCreator.
This thread is old, but I had the same problem, after changing the name of PDFCreator printer name in Windows printers configuration.
=> Simply restablish initial name (PDFCreator:) solve the problem.
If you really want to change PDFCreator printer name, try to change this key in regedit : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Control\\Print\\Monitors\\PDFCreator\\Ports\\
(...This is probably a really bad practice...)
