Hi Jon

Check that you've got a FILE: port in your printer settings. Updating
Acrobat can kill it, and FM can't make PDFs without it.

1.      From the Start menu select Settings > Printers and Faxes.
2.      In the Printers and Faxes window, right-click on any printer and
select Properties.
3.      In the Properties dialog, select the Ports tab. Write down the
port that the printer is currently using. 
4.      Look for FILE: in the port list.
5.      If it is not there, click the Add Port? button.
6.      In the Printer Ports dialog, select Local Port from the
Available port types list and click New Port? 
7.      In the Port Name dialog, enter "FILE:" (in uppercase, without
the quotes) and click OK.
8.      Click OK to close the Printer Ports dialog.
9.             The printer will probably now be using the FILE: port.
Change it back to its original port.
9.      Click OK to close the Properties dialog.
10.     Close the Printers and Faxes window.

Cheers, Rebecca

Jon,
Have these files ever worked, or do other files or other applications
work?
