Right-click - convert to PDF hangs

When my user right clicks on a word document (tested using several documents including one that simply contains the word test!) and selects convert to PDF with Nitro Pro - it hangs at the Nitro PDF creator stage. This also applies to Excel files.

All other aspects of Nitro Pro seem to work as expected.

Windows 10 20H2 all updates and patches applied.

MS Office 2013

Nitro Pro V12 .16.9.574 - (licensed and activated)

 

I have uninstalled Nitro pro, repaired it, repaired office 2013, cleared all temp folders.

Any suggestions as to how to proceed further?

 

I posted this to the crash/freeze area but 36hrs later it is still waiting for a moderator.

Hello @Andy Scrimgeour,

Thank you for the private message.

To further assist you, let us try some troubleshooting by referring to these steps:

1. Clear the content of the directory under C:\users\your_username\Appdata\local\temp. For whatever reason, not all temp files automatically remove themselves and is NOT usually caused by Nitro Pro files. Kindly note Appdata folder is hidden and to unhide it, please refer to this article https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2012/05/29/cant-see-the-appdata-folder/ 

2. Download and run our Clean Up utility to uninstall your Nitro Pro:  http://install.nitropdf.com/professional_12169574/install-cleanup/install-cleanup.zip

NOTE: This clean-up tool will erase any existing signature files within Nitro so please save them to another location before using the clean-up tool in order to keep them. Please see this link for backing up custom stamps/signatures: https://kb.gonitro.com/knowledgebase#/search/stamps/000004307 

3. Clear all your downloads folder or delete all downloaded Nitro installers. This step is important because we noticed that if you are saving all the installers and you download them in the same folder (like the downloads folder), the EXE can pick up any MSI installer in that folder and you may pick-up one of the older builds instead of the newly downloaded package.

4. Download and install Nitro Pro 12.16.9.574 using below offline installers:

x32 http://install.nitropdf.com/professional_12169574/en/retail/nitro_pro12_ba_x86.msi
x64 http://install.nitropdf.com/professional_12169574/en/retail/nitro_pro12_ba_x64.msi

To know if you have 32-bit or 64-bit, please refer to this article:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-ph/help/15056/windows-32-64-bit-faq 

5. After installation, you can activate by opening Nitro Pro, clicking on the Help tab > About Nitro Pro > Activate by entering your serial number.
 
Thank you very much in advance and I am looking forward to hearing back from you.
