My HL decided it needed reactivation the other day. After that, I can't save anything as a PDF. It says I need to install the plugin. When I download and try to install it tells me another program is using the PDF plug-in.

Nothing else is using the PDF plug-in.

I've uninstalled HL and freshly reinstalled, only to have the same problem.

Anyone else having this problem? Ideas on how to fix it or get around it? I really need to be able to save PDFs.

Nevermind.

I found where I can download the plugin outsdie of HL and install it. Apparently, HL is the program that was keeping the plugin from installing within HL. How dumb.

Yeah, there's a ton of posts from people who hit this.

Microsoft actually got around to including a PDF printer in Windows 10, but I like PDF24 over both the plug-in and Microsoft's version.

For future readers simply Click behind the installer window to HL. Shut HL down and click the "Retry" button on the PDF installer and let it finish.

I have closed HL and hit retry on the recent update allowing the install to finish, but HL still shows that as a new update.

Hey all, we've updated the installer on the server. We didn't update the version number as you're already being told that you need to update anyway, but re-downloading 1.8 for those experiencing this issue should stop the program from continually telling you that new updates are available.

Can confirm. Worked for me. Thanks.

Confirmed, as well. The PDF plug-in installed and HL stopped reporting a new version was available. THANK YOU!
