Just checking: Was FM closed when you tried to copy the file? I'll assume that you have admin rights to the computer, too.

That is, if I open Distiller 8.1.0, I see it in the Default Settings pull-down, and if I search my c:\ drive, I can find it in c:\Documents and Settings\<my username>\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe PDF\Settings\. But, in FM 7.1b023, if I click Format, Document, PDF setup, it does not appear in the PDF Job Options pull-down list on the Settings tab in the PDF Setup dialog (Format, Document, PDF Settings). I did a search of my c:\ drive for some of the files that do appear in this pull-down list and found them in c:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe PDF\Settings\. One curious note: One of the files I see in my PDF Job Options pull-down list within FM is capdf5, which is what I have been using. When I searched my c:\ drive for this file, I could not find it. I thought the solution would be to copy capdf8 from the <my username> path to the All Users path, but I got an error message that I "Cannot copy capdf8: Access is denied." I attempted to uncheck the (grayed out) read-only status of the folders within All Users, but got another error message saying "An error occurred apply attributes to the file: ... Access is denied.".
