If you are in non-silent mode and you select PRINT from your report or document, you are prompted with the PDF-eXPLODE Print options screen. On clicking the EXPLODE NOW or CREATE PDF button in order to continue the processing, the following Windows error appears:
This is a ‘Warning’ message rather than an ‘error’ as it does not terminate program operation. It emanates from Windows rather than a PDF-eXPLODE warning or error.
What causes this ‘error’ message?
If you look at C:\USERS\%USERNAME% (like C:\USERS\Chris), it is likely to have 2 ‘Desktop’ folders. Verify that one Desktop folder is empty and the other contains all of your current software shortcuts. You would need to rename the blank one to say DESKTOP_BAK.
Next look at the path where the error points to: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEMPROFILE and check if the DESKTOP folder exists here. More than likely not! Create a blank DESKTOP folder in that location and that should fix the problem. There could be variations of this fix applicable for different PCs.
