PAF Companion versions prior to 5.2 had problems in Vista, (mostly problems with the PDF-XChange printer driver that was used back then.)
PAF Companion versions 5.2 and 5.4 work fine with the 32-bit versions of Vista and Windows 7, but have a printing problem with the 64-bit versions of Vista and Windows 7.
Here are the instructions for running PAF Companion on 64-bit Windows.(I haven't tried this myself, but copied it from FamilySearch Knowledge Base Document # 104205.) __________________________________________________________
The PDF software vendor says that on 64-bit systems, the printer needs to be attached to a custom local port. You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these functions.
1. In the bottom left-hand corner of the screen, click on Start. 2. Go to Printers and Faxes. 3. Right-click Progeny PDF Printer. 4. Click on Properties. 5. Select the Ports tab. 6. Select Add Port. 7. In the Printer Ports dialog box, select Local Port. 8. Select New Port (not New Port Type). 9. In the Port Name dialog box, type PCOMPport. 10. Click OK. 11. In the Printer Ports dialog box, click Cancel. 12. In the Progeny PDF Printer Properties dialog box, make sure that PCOMPPort is checked. 13. Click Apply. 14. Close the window.
If you get the error message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the set association control panel," go to www.adobe.com, and make sure you have downloaded and installed Adobe Reader for Vista 64-bit.
