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
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.
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.
