PDF program crashing

Hi I have just downloaded the upgrade version 1.4.1 to replace version 1.3.2 on my friends computer.

Computer specs: AMD Athlon 64 - 3800+, 2.00 GB of RAM - Windows OP Professional with service pack 2.

When trying to use the program it crashed when trying to merge files or scroll down the page. The following error messages shows.

Microsoft .NET Framework

Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.


When details is clicked  see the error message below:

See the end of this message for details on invoking

Any ideas? thanks

 Greetings WOLFNOV,


I assume the OS you mean is Windows XP SP2. First of all, any installation of Windows XP should probably have Service Pack 3 installed as a baseline. There are countless bug fixes and some feature enhancements. Any computer running XP should be at least on SP3.


If it is that out of date I'm assuming that there may be other Windows Updates that need to be installed, even possibly with the .NET framework. Why not get all of that updated, and give it a shot?
