Pdf print monitor showing instead of document


I’ve just purchased new laptop using windows8.
Installed pdfcreator 1.7.2. today.

Firstly I have used pdfcreator without any problem at all on xp for a good while now - thank you.

However having just downloaded 1.7.2 onto a new win 8 laptop when I try to open a document only the pdf print monitor pops up.
I cannot get the document to open at all.
I have altered the setting so pdfcreator is the default setting to open ‘documents of this type’ away from the annoying microsoft win8 app.

Anyone know how I can open the documents?

Any help here would be appreciated as my xp laptop is dying and I’m still trying to navigate win8 - it’s frustrating.

Many thanks
