I have just got a brand new cpu. Win 7 pro 64 bit.
Also Illustrator 5.1 and photoshop, acrobat and indesign 5.1. and I have the same problem. Eps files just wont save. I deleted the prefs files and nothing. I created a new admin account and that fixed it for half an hour but now nothing. I work in a sign shop and my rip sftware also versaworks cant find cut lines unless I use the .eps format. Just so were all clear, If I create a new document and leave it blank. I still cant save as eps.
Please help, not impressed buying new software and having it completely not work.
I'm having the same issue. Just went from XP to Windows 7 on a new PC.
Open .eps file I've already created and printed try to save to desktop (or anywhere else) and get the same "Can't Save Illustration. Can't Print Illustration"
I can save as .ai and I can save as version3 or 8.
Don't have a problem saving PS files as .eps.
From the searching I've done online, it appears this is fairly common, yet I've not found the solution. I'm wondering if it's the windows 7 64 bit operating system?!?!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: printer drivers were not installed on new pc, set print to pdf and works fine
