I get the message "printing to C:/Program Files (x86)/RockSim 10/pdf_prints”. That folder doesn't exist on my hard drive.

This happens when I try to print to my actual printer, not when trying to save as a PDF.

(I sent an email to Apogee Components, but I don't count on them being in the office for Columbus Day. Still, I could be surprised.)

Long story short: Apparently my problem was that I had installed Windows 10 over Windows 7 instead of formatting the hard drive and doing a fresh Win10 install.

Apogee's tech support indicated that RockSim 10 wasn't designed or tested with Windows 7 in mind.

Solution? Backing up everything important on that drive and getting ready to reformat it and do a fresh install of Windows 10.

Be back when I can. (Spock eyebrow)
