Hi Friends!

I'm developing an app where I need a freeware utility to convert PCL to PDF. I have one such EXE(It's actually Ghostscripts downloaded from, but the problem is the PDF file generated opens up in Acrobat Reader 4.0 but in Acrobat Reader 5.0, it gives a draw error. The proper error message is:
"An error occured while processing the page. Draw error occured."

I am using Win XP with Adobe Acrobat 5.0 installed. I want to know why is it that other PDF files open up properly in AAR5 whereas the one created by the app. doesn't. Is there any difference in the way the versions 4 & 5 interprets a converted PCL file. Is there any patch available which has to be applied to version 5 for it to recognize postscripts correctly. I'm stuck with this problem for a long time.Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
