Well that was a pleasant surprise! I had a problem with my PDF creator on the main PC – it worked fine on all the other PCs on the network, but not the one I use the most. Every time I tried to create a pdf file, it threw up ‘cannot load options’ error message. Reinstalling it didn’t seem to help.
A quick search round the ‘net revealed that it was a common problem – something to do with the ‘XML Parser‘ (even I don’t know what that means!!) and I needed to download the following file and run it.
for the file.
The good news was that it solved the problem instantly. The BETTER news was that (maybe) coincidentally, it also cleared up my three-year-old problem of the PC not being able to download windows updates (pretty important!); live messenger not working and live sync refusing to install.
Err, I think that’s what they call a ‘result’!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
