Just installed v6.1.280 in Vista 32 Home Premium with all updates.

doPDF will not work in either Notepad or OpenOffice.

The error message in both applications is: "Error creating PDF file (access is denied)"

Hope you can help.

Hi All:

Just discovered the problem. The default location for saving the PDF was somehow restricted. When I saved to the desktop -- all is sweetness and light.

I have not installed doPDF on VISTA Ultimate yet but PrimoPDF kept failing

with permissions. I never got past that. How would I change the permissions

under Vista?

@J0cobe1 I suggest you install dopdf and see if you're able to create PDFs with it under Vista.

Thanks rod for letting us know, it's usually the best thing when a user posts the problem and finds the solution by himself (or herself) :).

access denied when dopdf7 trys to ceate PDF. None of the above answers applies

to me Old version use to work. I use win 7 pro 64 bit. I own the folder where it is trying to create PDF unless it's trying to write it somewhere else.

How do I change the folder name to store PDF in?

Where is your help file? weeks wasted on this

Here's an user manual that explains the interface of doPDF (including the Save as PDF window where you can change the folder name):
