An application error has occurred and an application error log is being generated.

This error may occur if your printer driver is set to the Adobe Acrobat, version 3.01, PDFWriter for NT.


You are using a beta version of the PDFWriter for NT driver. The beta version 5 of this driver is known to cause errors with Outlook's Page Setup option.

  1. On the Windows Taskbar, click Start and point to Settings and then click Printers.
  2. In the list of installed printer drivers use your right mouse button to click "Acrobat PDFWriter for NT" and on the shortcut menu, click Properties.
  3. Click the Page Setup tab, and then click About.
