Topic: Watched folder and ps file but no PDF.

I read several topic dealing with this subject but they rather old so I am asking this also.

Has anyone found a solution to the problem of trying to distill a ps file put in the watched 'In' folder on the desktop of a computer running OS 10.3.4 and having the ps file go to the 'Out' folder but no pdf file is produced?

Other times on my machine I have had some success with distilling a ps file that has been saved to a particular 'In' folder that has a certain setting attached to it. Some times it works while other times Distiller up and quits. Some times nothing happens with ps file that is sitting in the 'In' folder. Distiller just sits there waiting for something to happen.

Now the ps files are being generated from QuarkXPress PassPort 4.1 in Classic. I can allways get a pdf when I drag the ps file on to Distiller. Well almost all of the time. Some times I have restart my computer before it will work without crashing Distiller after launching Distiller several times.
