PDF conversion failure and truncated hyperlinks after PDF conversion

Q: PDF conversion failure and truncated hyperlinks after PDF conversion

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with a 1.5 GHz Pentium M processor, 2 GB RAM and Windows XP/Pro SP 2, InDesign CS3 (v. 5.0.1), and Word 2002 SP 3.

Problem description:

a) I have tried converting InDesign documents and Word documents with long hyperlinks to PDF. I have documents with some hyperlinks that are very long and require more than one line. The hyperlinks that I create in InDesign or Word that require more than one line look OK after conversion to PDF (using the Export command in InDesign), but, if I hover the mouse over the link in the PDF, all the characters in the URL on the second line are missing, and the link doesn’t work. I first discovered this using Acrobat Professional 7. Yesterday I downloaded a trial version of Acrobat Professional 8 (8.1.0), and I still have the problem.

Yes, I know I can create a hyperlink character style in InDesign with the “no break” feature enabled. However, that can result in appearance and text flow problems.

b) Furthermore, I tried to convert a Word document with a long hyperlink to PDF (using the Word Print command), and the same problem occurs.

To make matters worse, when I try to convert any Word document to PDF using the “Adobe PDF/Convert to Adobe PDF” menu item, I get this message:

“The Acrobat PDFMaker server could not be loaded. Do you want to run the installer in repair mode?”

I tried the repair mode. Then I tried it again from the Add/Remove Programs option in Control Panel. That did not solve either problem. Regarding the PDFMaker problem, after a search of this forum, I found this posting from Wedor, back in 2005:

“To restore the PDFMaker buttons in your Office application, first try the following: In the Office application, choose Help > About application name. Click Disabled Items and then check to see if PDFMakerOfficeAddin is listed. If so, select it and click Enable. Then close all dialog boxes and restart the Office application….”

I checked for disabled items and found two:

Document: pdfmaker.dot
Addin: pdfmaker.dot

However, there is a message in that window that reads:

“The items listed below were disabled because they prevented Word from functioning correctly.”

That is not very helpful. Can anyone tell me what will happen (or might happen) to Word if I enable those two items?

For what it is worth, at the start of the original Acrobat 8 installation a message was displayed that said something like "...an earlier version of Acrobat was found on this computer. It is 'strongly recommended' that the earlier version be reomved." The window included an option to remove the older version, which I used.

Can anyone help?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

At first, I don't need to recover my data, I just want my drive back to re-use it.
How can a format my usb drive including all boot sectors which sees to be locked/write-protected by bitlocker?

My problem starts with decrypting my drive by deactivting bitlocker on it by entering the valid password/recovery key. At 36% of decryption the process halts without reason. Now, I'm unable to access my drive or resume the process.

I tried...
    ...to format with windows
   ..remove with diskmgmt
   ... remove with diskpart
   ... repair-bde
   ... manage-bde
   ... ubuntu live cd
   ... mass production tool software, to override the whole stick

nothing worked. The only thing which worked was once the software M3 Bitlocker recovery Free, but just one time to access the locked partition. But, as mentioned I don't need to recover my data. With that tool I'm not able to wipe the drive.

That Bitlocker protects my data till the end is good, but that it breaks my data and my hardware in such a case is not fair.
How can I break the write-protection mode to finally wipe the hard drive?

Hi guys. Can anyone point me to where I can find a method to convert from a C++ CTime object to a SQL DATETIME field and back in C++ ado.net managed code? I've dredged everywhere for almost a full day and can find nothing on it.

For some inexplicable reason, the Systemax OEM PC we bought in 2006 had its Windows installation on a FAT32-formatted C: partition by default. I only noticed it this month, and after backing it up, I tried convert.exe based on what every-website-ever agreed on was the right instruction. Since it was running off of the partition it needed to convert, it asked me to run on the next restart, which it did. The process took at least 2 hours, but sometime in between the last time I checked up on it and when it finished, it apparently *undid* all the conversion it was doing, because the C: partition still read as FAT32. I did it again with the same result. I'm trying to borrow a video camera to record the end of the process that I keep missing, but does anyone have any ideas what could cause this kind of problem in the first place?

Forgive me if I'm asking in the wrong area, but I am wondering if anyone uses software or even non software (external devices) to convert music from LPs, tapes to MP3s and video to video formats. I am searching for something with ease of use for my mother who would love to convert her old collection of music for an Ipod.

Well, I can give you a partial answer.

There is a commercial application called Roxio Easy Media Creator that is a comprehensive suite of tools for creating, and editing all kinds of media such as video, audio, pictures, etc. and then managing them such as creating home DVDs, video clips, slide shows and of course disk burning. It costs around $50 and is easy enough to use since it is designed for the casual home user.

Within this suite is a utility called "LP and Tape Assistant". This utility has you connect the audio output from a LP player or Tape drive (or any audio source) to the input to your sound card on your PC. The utility then 'captures' the audio that comes out of your PC sound card (speakers) and converts it to any of several sound formats (such as MP3, WMA, WAV, etc.) and stores it in a file on your hard disk. You must do any queueing of the pieces and must manually type in the title, artist etc. if you want to so there is a fair amount of work involved. There are controls to autopause, silence system sounds etc. This utility can also be used to capture any audio from any source that is being sent to your PC speakers so you can surf the web looking for online radio to capture.

The same producer (Roxio) has provided, as a free 'Gadget' for Windows Vista, a stripped down version of this utility (LP and Tape Assistant, not the entire Easy Media Creator) that will do the capture and record functions of the full utility. The Gadget ... Read more

Firstly, in Control Panel, Regional and Language settings set it for your country. Also in Time, make sure the right time zone is selected.

Do not try and rename the folders, you cannot.

You need to make a new log-in with administrator priviledges in your name, that will create a new set of correctly named folders. Then transfer any needed data and delete the previous persons profile, selecting the option to delete the data associated with it.

Using Winamp how do I convert MP3's to WAV? or is there a better free or shareware program to use?
 

A:MP3 conversion

Winamp works great for this...

Open Winamp. Click the uppermost left corner button to open the menu. Select Options--Preferences.

This should Open a new window.

From the left-hand column under Plug-ins, select 'OUTPUT'

Then from the right hand column select "Nullsoft Disk Writer plugin"

After you've selected that plugin, click the Configure button at the bottom to select where you would like your WAVs to be written.

Now when you 'play' MP3s they will be written out (usually pretty quickly) to your Hard Drive as .wav files!!!

Hope that works for ya

(ps. make sure you reselect the DirectSound Plugin when you want to use Winamp to play MP3s to your speakers again )

I wouldn't expect the quality to be very good with a composite input and you will also need to see what resolutions the TV supports, it may be limited to a very low 640x480 resolution that newer PC's don't support properly.

Using a Panasonic DVD recorder, I recorded on DVD +RW format. To my dismay, i find out that I cannot replay on another DVD player! This is because, I am told, the disc format cannot be "finalized." OK fine. How can I transfer this recording to a DVD -R, +R or -RW format, at minumum cost? I would prefer a more direct approach, i.e direct burn. I can of course replay the content and re-record on a separate recorder, but that would entail another hardware purchase. And it might result in lose of resolution, hence my preference for a direct burn. Any ideas?? Thanks.

Sounds to me like you are missing a few codecs. Codec stands for code/decode. These are instructions for your computer to play and create different types of video/audio files. Head on over to www.codecguide.com and download the Mega Codec Pack. After installing (and restarting if necessary) try converting and burning again. Good luck!

PS Also check your burning software. If it has one, check the Verify box to make sure that the data you are burning is being burned properly. It will check the CD against the data on the harddrive to make sure it burned correctly.
