Sadly this does not seem to work. When I open a document in Word 2007 and export to swf the flashpaper "Working..." box stays open for ever and after a force stop Word is hung as well. All the other studio8 programs seem to work.
No, I downloaded the trial, to see if this would work for me. On Windows 7, flashpaper does not install properly. It fails to register one of the components, which causes the problem that you described. I uninstalled, as it would appear that it isn't going to be usuable.
How to install FlashPaper2 on Windows 7
I've wrote the solution here:
This required using Microsoft's Windows Print Migrator 3.1 and exporting a working WinXP FlashPaper2 printer to a .cab file
Step 1: Uninstall FlashPaper2, if applicable
Step 2: Run uninstall_flash_player.exe
Low Trust Users: Download latest @ http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash _player.exe
Step 3: Run FlashPaper2Installer.exe
Low Trust Users: Download latest trial @ https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=flashpaper
Step 4: Run printmig.exe
Low Trust Users: Download @ http://download.microsoft.com/download/4/5/2/452d431e-5a5c-43bd-b398-6 fc27208e001/printmig.exe
Step 5: Load FlashPaper2.cab @ http://sites.google.com/a/imustknowsomething.com/flashpaper2-windows7/ FlashPaper2.cab
(Low Trust Users create your own on a XP machine w/ successful FlashPaper2 install using printmig.exe via Actions > Backup...)
Click Actions, or press Alt + A
Click Restore..., or press R
Locate FlashPaper2.cab, click Open
Wait for process to complete...
Step 6: Open Devices and Printers
Right-click "Macromedia FlashPaper", select Printer Properties
Click on the Ports tab
Verify the FlashPaper port is checked.
Verify the "Macromedia FlashPaper" printer is online.
You're good to GO!
Step 7: Re-install latest Flash Player @ http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
I haven't had a chance to look into this yet. The easy answer (100% surefire method) would be to install Virtual PC (free) and load a WinXP virtual workstation (or Win7 32-bit with my fix applied) and print documents within the virtual machine using flash paper.
Another possible solution would be for me to get this working on a WinXP/64-bit virtual machine and then run printmig to create a 64-bit flashpaper .cab file, which could then be used/distributed for use with Win7/64-bit workstations.
