Click on the first icon in the Dock the "Finder", then click on Go at the top of the screen, you will see a drop down menu, go to Utilities. When that opens double click on the application called Disk Utility. When Disk Utility opens you will see your hard drive (usually Macintosh HD) on the left. Highlight your hard drive and click on Verify Disk on the far right. If that is OK in green type, then click on Repair Disk Permissions on the left. Note: If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair. If Repair is successful then Repair Disk Permissions if it is not successful let me know.

I had tried to repair successfully before. Still getting this error message. Unable to launch the distiller. There probably isn't enough memory.
Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago
If you are running in Classic mode would try booting in to OS9 by itself and not running as Classic. Also you can export as postscript file and then run Distiller by itself and close Pagemaker

I'm running Classic mode. How would I boot in OS9 and how do you export s ps file
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Export in ps

Mac Support Specialist: Mike, Mac Medic replied 2 years ago
if you want to print to a file, you have to go into the chooser, select the PostScript printer in the left-hand side of the chooser window, and select virtual printer in the right-hand side. That way, when you print, the computer will send a file to your desktop (or wherever you like), instead of to a printer. If you have Distiller, you can make a watched folder (or folders) that will make a PDF out of any PostScript file that you drop into it. I have watched folders with different job options. I can drop my PS file into one to make a low-res PDF (smaller file size) for email, or a high-res PDF larger file size) to print from. If your current workflow is giving you different results between printing to file or exporting to PDF, you are probably using different job options.When you want to print to your printer, just switch back in the chooser.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
