Error creating the dopdf file, the specified module cannot be found

When I attempt to print I get the following message Error creating the pdf file ( the specified module cannot be found). I have uninstalled DoPhd several times and reinstalled with the same results. Ant have suggestions.

I had the same problem and reverted to DoPDF v. 8. Works fine.

I had the same problem today (2020-10-12) with doPDF v10.9.130 and Firefox 81.0.1.
It turned out that the specified folder where the generated pdf-files are saved does not exist.

Here are the steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Create a folder (temporary) where the generated pdf-files will be saved.
2. Print a document using doPDF and in the dialog window with the title "doPDF 10 - Save PDF file" click on "Browse" to select the created destination folder. Note, that in the "Preferences" section "Always use this folder" is checked.
3. Click "OK" to print the document. It should create it without an error message.

Now reproduce the error:
4. Delete the temporary folder previously created under step 1. above.
5. Print the document using doPDF (the dialog window appears again) and notice the non existing folder is still selected in "File selection" of the dialog window.
6. Click "OK" and the error appears with the message: "Error creating PDF file (The specified module could not be found.)."

The solution is to make sure the selected destination folder exists.
