    I have used PDF24 Creator successfully for over a year. However, I recently uninstalled and re-installed the latest version. Now everytime I bring up PDF24 creator and click on a PDF to print, I get a message:

    Could Not Create Temporary File (and it displays its location).

    PDF24 is currently unusable. I am running Windows 7 64 bit. Is anyone else having this problem. Please help. Thanks


    Check the folder, check whether files/folders can be created inside that folder. Could be wrong rights or a missing temp folder.


    The path it displays is: C:\Users\Desktop\Local\Temp\PDF24\1415365055_...

    This is not the location of my Temporary Internet File Folder. I went in and created a Local > Temp> PDF24 and it doesn't make any difference.

    If I click on the PDF24 printer to see what's printing, it shows the file in the queue.

    Also, when I bring up PDF Creator and click on a PDF, it displays:

    An error occurred while creating a document.

    The reason is blank.

    I have no idea what is going on here.


    The problem is that PDF24 creates a new user to access the folder with temporary files. And this user does not have rights to write or change data.


    Solution - run PDF24 as administrator.

    Also, as an alternative, you can give rights to write and change data to the user created by PDF24 (by going to this folder - clicking "properties" - then go to the "security" tab - "advanced" - "change rights").

    I have tried both methods and both methods work.

    Good luck!
