Topic: Error message converting Pagemaker file to PDF

I am not an expert with Adobe products so please bear with me. My predecessor at work created a large number of forms using Adobe Pagemaker versions 6 and 6.5 which I am in the process of converting to PDF (using Acrobat 5) to enable a range of users to view them on our intranet. The conversion process went smoothly enough when all the files were stored on an old Windows 95 PC but I am having a problem since everything has been transferred over to a Windows 2000 PC. When I use the File Export option in Pagemaker 6.5 everything is OK until I reach the point where I name the PDF filename to be saved - I then get the following error - "PM65.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program". The only option to select is a Cancel button and this just closes Pagemaker down.
A colleague has suggested that Pagemaker 6.5 may not be compatible with Windows 2000 but I can open, edit and resave files in Pagemaker perfectly well - it is only when trying to convert to PDF I have this problem.
Does anyone have any suggestions for this novice please?
