    I have just send a error report 10minutes before in the PDF Pro software tool. 

    When i used the tool in the free trail periode, it worked just fine. 

    This week i bought the Pro version, but when i want to open the pdf files i created from a other type file (Word, Excel,...) it gives an error. It sais that the pdf file can not be opened because it is damaged. 

    Can you please help solve the problem? 

    Thank you
