Windows XP Professional. PDF Creator has been running perfectly for many years, thank you !
Hi, this usually indicates a broken MSI installation,
It may well indicate a broken MSI installation… However, I’ve observed this behaviour on different versions of PDFCreator on each machine I manage (now). It has erroneously caused the installer for several different pieces of software to launch, including Microsoft Office and StatSoft STATISTICA. Now, the installer for software that was installed by download only from a source that no longer exists is being launched.
This new instance of this old defect in PDFCreator started last night with a 1.6.2 installation. It is now the case that every time PDFCreator launches, an unfinishable installer launches five times, each time demanding unsuppliable source media. Then PDFCreator launches.
So, are you guys offering PDF printer software or some sort of registry checker for incomplete installations? Oddly, I don’t want the latter.
How do we fix PDFCreator so that it quits causing spurious launches of other softwares’ installers?
Thanks fuzzyeric - my problem exactly.
this is not related to the PDFCreator itself and therefore we can´t fix it.
It is caused by incomplete/faulty MSI installations on your system and using http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/MSI-cleanup-utility-3889c8db
has fixed it for all users so far.
I’m having the same issue here on multiple machines all running Windows 7 X64.
well, it is not a PDFCreator issue directly, more an issue of the combination of Navis with PDFCreator (but then again on most machines there are no problems, so it is a combination of the software AND system configuration). PDFCreator won´t show up in the list of the cleanup tool, because it is not the PDFCreator setup which faulted (it is not a msi setup).
please try the preview of our new PDFCreator http://forums.pdfforge.org/discussion/11150/testers-wanted-pdfcreator-rewrite-preview-version#Item_1
if you can do some testing without damaging your workflow.
Hopefully, the problem will dissappear.
