I get no PDF created
according to the Logfile the system cannot write to a tempfile
C:\\Documents and Settings\\pvdlee\\Local Settings\\Temp\\PDFCreator\\PDFCreatorSpool\\~PS81.tmp
29-11-2011 10:40:35: Error: GPL Ghostscript 9.04: **** Could not open temporary file ''; **** Unable to open the initial device, quitting.;

29-11-2011 10:40:35: PDFCreator Program End
PDFCreator 1.2.3 worked on my Win7 64-Bit installation until I installed a document viewer (quick view plus). I don’t know what exactly happend, but now I get the same message:
GPL Ghostscript 9.04: **** Could not open temporary file ‘’
**** Unable to open the initial device, quitting.
I uninstalled both - PDFCreator and quick view plus - and re-installed PDFCreator (a few times - with and without removing entries from registry), but no difference.
Did you find any solution?
Any help would be appreciated, Thx!
After 3 days of research I finally found the problem, and the solution is that easy...
The problem is just, that the pdfwrite device cannot write temporary files into temp/tmp folder. Sometimes (so it was in my case) gs hang up during printing. If you kill the process, it leaves some temporary pdfwrite-files (lock-files: ~D...!) open and unaccessable (also after restarting you cannot print any longer). If you change the temp/tmp folder you solve the problem, but much easier is to delete all the files in the temp/tmp folder. After that gs and PDFCreator is working without any problems again.
Hope this helps saving time for those with same problems...
