I am new to this forum, so if this message is inappropriate, please excuse me.
I have been using the free version for some time now.  Recently, I purchased a HP 3940 inkjet printer.  After this event, I noticed that PDFR has started throwing errors.  I am not sure if the other driver is causing this problem.  But, the error says Error = 50003.  Description= Unexpected error. DLL error = 0 I am unable to nail this problem.  Can anyone of you help me out?

Sorry, I missed out on the OS.  It is Win98SE.  I can now confirm that the hp driver has nothing to do with the error as I tried to reproduce it on WinXP.

Problem fixed.  I re-installed the OS and things are now working fine.  Still I am curious to know what gave in.  OCX, DLL what?

Yes, Windows can be become a big spaghetti mess sometimes! I do not know what could have caused the problem. Unfortunately, Error 50003 is: "Application-defined or object-defined error" which does not tell us much.

   Glad to hear that it is working again though.

Hi Michel
Thanks for your reply.  The problem has to do with some OCX / DLL as I was trying out various programs from a magazine CD.  Perhaps, something somewhere got disturbed / overwritten without my knowledge.  Now, I have got the thing working again and hey - the new version is really nice.
