Default PDF converter fails to convert equations


The Word 2007 PDF converter does not convert equations. I think this is the add-in from MSFT, but I'm not sure. I've had it a long time.

A little research revealed that this is a known problem that can be fixed with a Control Panel setting, which requires the XP installation disk. Here's the page describing the fix: http://tinyurl.com/7o35cqn.

Is there any place where I can get this file? It's been 5-6 years since I bought this PC and I cannot find my installation disk.

Thanks

Paul,

As far as I can see, this is the same as the solution at the link I provided. That one uses the control panel. This one appears to run the same applet, but from the DOS box. Both require that I insert the XP installation diskette, which I cannot find.

My question was whether there is someplace where I can download the required file. The prompt indicates that it is looking for ftlx041e.dll. (See attached screen shot.) I have searched my hard disk and the file is not there. I see several non-Microsoft places for downloading the file. Are they safe? Why is it not available from Microsoft?

Hi Jennifer,

Yes, you do need an XP installation disk. The ftlx041e.dll file is only a few kb of what I gather will be a 200MB+ installation (though not necessarily a 200MB+ increase in the final size of your XP installation), so I'm not sure that downloading it will get you much further.
