Adobe PDF Printer Fails, ProgeCAD PDF Printer Extremely Slow

I am running Windows 7 on a Quad-core i7. When using the PDF printer from Acrobat XI Pro the Adobe file creation status bar shows ProgeCAD zips through generating 75% of the PDF print file and then everything hangs.  I must cancel the plot to continue.  If I select any other ProgeCAD menu command the software indicates (Not Responding) and I must terminate it from Task Manager.  I can then restart ProgeCAD, recover my drawing and continue working.  I have found that I can use the ProgeCAD PDF Printer 2013 to create PDF files, but it is extremely slow.  It takes about 5 minutes to generate a PDF file.  Unlike the Adobe PDF printer the ProgeCAD PDF Printer will actually complete the printing task.  As with the Adobe PDF printer though, if I click on any menu item during the printing time cycle ProgeCAD will crash. How do I fix this so printing to a PDF file is as quick and reliable as doing it from any other software program I have loaded on my computer?

try removing all pdf generators from your machine, reinstall progeCAD over the top of the existing progeCAD install, and then try your plot using the printer driving within the printer/plot command.
