Hi, I’ve been using pdfCreator for a few years now and have updated the version a few times. Recently I got a notification saying a new version was available so I downloaded version 2.1 a few days ago - but I can’t get it to launch when I try to print.
2015-08-27 18:04:59.0193 [Error] pdfforge.PDFCreator.Startup.MaybePipedStart.TryStartApplication: There was an error while starting the application: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path ‘C:\Users\John\AppData\Local\Temp\PDFCreator\Spool\6860BCA4C4D04FFD9A1CBE1360FFE9E0.inf’ is denied.

Don’t know what to do now - hope you can help
Please navigate to this folder, view its properties and click on the security tab. Add SYSTEM and your user to the list of groups/users and give them full access to the folder.
Thanks Cay, I couldn’t find the appdata folders but googled and found instructions so they were nit hidden then I did as instructed, got another error log relating to local/temp/pdfcreator.net folder so fixed that one and now it all appears to be working fine!
