      TROJANS in the download and an error 623  prevented me from downloading the trial version.  How can I get over this

          Were you downloading PageMaker from the Adobe site?

            Hi,

            I had the same problem.  Tried downloading the Free Trial of Pagemaker right from the Adobe site.  first got this message:

             

            Componentmovedata had the following error:

            Media Name : Data

            Component: Kodak files

            File group:

            File:

            Error nimber : -103 refer to online help

             

            Then when you click ok, the message pops up in McAfee:

            About this Trojan
            Detected: Artemis!E23875697454 (Trojan), Artemis!E23875697454 (Trojan)
            Location: C:\Program Files\Adobe\PageMaker 7.0 Tryout\Converter for MSP_QXP\MSPublisher_Quark Converter.728

             

            Then the installation closes.

              Why are you downloading a trial of dead software.

               

              Also Pagemaker is not going to work on XP with SP3, Vista, Windows 7, Mac OSX Leopard or Snow Leopard.

               

              if you need a page layout app download the trial of InDesign.

                Always turn off virus software when installing Adobe software.

                  Oh!

                   

                  Didn't know it was dead!  Actually I have to update a booklet and I just bought InDesign.  The old booklet is a PDF file and I read that I could download the trial Pagemaker and save the PDF in a format that InDesign could read.

                   

                  I guess the people who are giving me the file to update will have to dig around and find their InDesign file.  It's tough learning a new program.  I used Publisher for many years, but seems that the printers hate it.

                    You read bad info. PM does not convert PDFs. It can make them as can ID.

                     

                    all you can do with that PDF(if its old enough) is Place it in PM just like you can in InDesign.

                     

                    If you have Acrobat Pro and the changes are minor (spelling or number changes) you could use that to make your changes. But if its Major revisions use Acrobat to extract your images and text and reset the doc in ID.

                      Thanks!  I'm glad I didn't install the Pagemaker after all....more clutter

                      to get rid of.

                      It seems one of the guys found a copy of an older booklet in ID so I guess

                      I can fiddle with that.
