FIX: Quicken restorepdfdriver.bat not working Windows 7 64-bit

Here is the hack to make this work on Windows 7 64 bit OS after fiddling around with it for a couple of hours:

I was working on Quicken 2006 but works for other Quicken versions also.

Download and install the latest CUTEPDF from   HERE

right click on the download and install as administrator the .pdf driver and also the second install when it pops up for the other driver that it has to have to work which is the Ghost converter...viola!  cutepdf printer is installed.

then RIGHT CLICK on the cutepdf printer icon in "Devices and Printers"

rename it Quicken PDF Printer

Make sure the default printer though is still your printer you use for everything.

Also set the default printer to your own printer in the Quicken program (upper left>file>printer)

this "tricks" the quicken program into thinking the cutepdf is the quicken pdf printer....

it works flawlessly....

So forget all the info on restorepdfdriver.bat info that Quicken puts doesn't work....

this fix does.....happy printing in the Web World!
