Default Converting Publisher 2007 Doc to PDF..."Publisher encountered

Are you using a trial version?
Use a different converter, see if that works. is free as well
as many other applications.
Is there a details button in the error message box? What does it say?

I am using the one in Publisher, File, convert to XPS or PDF. It is a larger
file but i do it all the time iwth no trouble (final size usually around
14MB). It just says publisher as encountered a problem & shuts down (sends
error message to Microsoft). I have all my settings as 300dpi (text/lineart).
Any suggestions? Thanks

The Adobe Reader has nothing to do with creating a PDF through Publisher.
PDF converter are you using? Is your publication large? Is it a commercial
What is the exact error?
