PDF Creator 1.2.0 error

 I use PDF Creator on my laptop, but have been unsuccessful getting it to run on my desktop.   I'm using PDF Creator 1.2.0 with Windows XP Service Pack 3, and when I try to print to PDF Creator (or just to open it), I get the following message:

Unexpected error, closing.

How can I get it to work?

One cause for this error is trying to open PDFCreate from a limited user login on Win XP.  If you can open PDFCreate from an administrator login but not a limited user login, then you have two choices:

1. Login as an administrator or

2. Login in as a limited user and use the RunAs command to open PDFCreate.  One way to do this is to right-click on any PDFCreate "shortcut" and select "Run as...".  Then select the "The following user:" radio button.  Next, select an administrator login from the drop-down list and enter any needed password.

Item 2 is AWKWARD but it works.  I have not tried it yet, but I will attempt to re-install PDFCreate and see if they offer an option to run PDFCreate from all users (not just administrator users).

Good luck
