[Solved] PDF Import Extension

Postby chideock » Tue Nov 05, 2013 7:19 pm

I have PDF Import Ext 2.1.0 installed on OO4.01 on my Win7 computer. This is a new install.
When trying to open a PDF I get "General Error, General Input Error/Output Error".

What do I need to do to fix this?
Thanks

Can the file you are trying to import open correctly in Adobe Reader?

Yes it does. I have tried several files, all open in reader, but I get the message as stated above in OO. OO and the PDF Ext are new installs on my win 7 computer.

It is certainly failing for me also; I have another version on another computer that did work with OO 4.0. I'll look for it after dinner, but it may have been erased in a tidy-up.

Try
http://extensions.openoffice.org/en/node/17351
which is the "This extension" link on the PDF download page.
It has just worked OK for me (but very slow!) with a file the 2.1.0 extension blew up on.

How about that - aoo-pdf-import-0.1.0-windows-x86.oxt worked in OO 4.01 on my win7. The pdf file opened in Draw. Obviously pdf-import-2.1.0-windows-x86.oxt has a bug!

This is solved in the sense that I have a workable PDF import albeit the beta version.

pdf-import-2.1.0 has been withdrawn for running repairs. OO 4.0 Users should note the special link on the pdf extension page in the repository for the version appropriate to their system.

Just so you know I loaded OO4.01on my Win 8.1 Laptop along with the 0.1.0 PDF extension and it works fine in that setup.
