Here's something NOT needed late on a Friday afternoon with a BIG
project looming!

FrameMaker 8 on a Windows XP platform: Beginning about 3 or so this
afternoon (Eastern Time), Frame stopped producing post script files.
Nor can I "Save as pdf" from Frame.

The resulting filename is correct, but it's always 0 kb. I tried
other files from other and much earlier jobs with same results.

I CAN, however, create pdf files from non-FrameMaker programs (Word).

I've made no changes to any setting whatsoever nor changed out any
hardware and yes, this is a legally purchased and registered version of FM.

My two coworkers also with legal FM's on their terminals do NOT have
this problem.
