File > Print > doPDF v7 > [Print] [Browse] Select/create some folder other than My Documents (e.g. E:\TEST to which I am the owner and administrator both and have FULL CONTROL permissions in the folder, especially when I just created it and checked it) then apply filename (e.g. saveme) click [Save] in the Browse window. ERROR: "E:\TEST\saveme.pdf

Contact the adminstrator to obtain permission.

Would you like to save in the <loginname> folder instead?"
What in Windows 7 do I need to change to make doPDF and Windows 7 play nice together? I do not have this save error message with any other utility. doPDF is the only one giving me grief in Windows 7.

hi, can you tell us (in order to try to reproduce this):

- what windows 7 you have installed (32 or 64 bits)?

- from which application are you trying to print and receive this error (if it's the browser, what version and does it do the same problem from other applications)?

- do you have the latest version installed for dopdf (build 332 or newer?)
thank you.

Hi, I'm having the same problem too.

Except, I'm trying to save files to c:\ from the internet (i'm trying to download a program). Do you know how to solve this issue?
