File Conversion - Error When Generating PDF

Postby ziggle » Fri Feb 12, 2010 8:57 pm

Hi folks,

I am getting an encoding error when trying to generate a PDF file of anything. The dialog asks me to choose an encoding (windows, ms-dos, etc). I have tried them all and nothing works. I get a file filled with junk. Any ideas where to start?

Hi folks,

Sorry for the double post -- I didn't realize the posts were reviewed before going live.

I appreciate all the direct emails -- they were very helpful. Here is what resolved the issue. I am working on my son's computer. He had inadvertently set the file association for pdf to Microsoft Word. When he installed Bullzip, Bullzip ran fine but did not appear to. However, Word could not display the PDF and it was generating the error. I did not understand what was going on right away. I corrected the file association problem and it still did not work. Then I re-installed Adobe Acrobat reader and now everything works.

Again, I appreciate the emails of assistance.
