Preview Problem in PAF Companion 5.5.1/Windows 7

Preview Problem in PAF Companion 5.5.1/Windows 7

I've moved up to Windows 7, but my file that works perfectly in XP SP3/Adobe X no longer works properly in Windows 7/Adobe X. When I click on "Preview", Adobe X launches but the system returns this message: "There was an error opening this document. This file is already open or in use by another application." There is no other app running and I took considerable pains to make sure that all files were closed before exiting the program. Any ideas?

Edit to add the things I've tried that haven't made any difference: (a) Uninstall and reinstall PAF Companion; (b) delete .paf file from flashdrive and resave from XP where it still works.

Aha! It appears that the website has at least one link to an outdated version of PAF Companion, insofar as said link points to Version 5.5B.

A more recent release--one that has solved the problem I reported above--is PAF Companion Version 5.7, which is available at the website.

So if you are having previewing or printing problems on Windows 7 (x64) as I was having, make sure to try Version 5.7 to see if it works better.

We now return to your regularly scheduled programming.
