HOWTO Maintaining hyperlinks in Publisher documents to publish as PDF.

Here's how to solve converting your Microsoft Office 2007 files to PDF.

I have this problem when I convert a Microsoft Publisher 2007 file to PDF format. The hyperlinks (URL Address) that was in my Microsoft Publisher 2007 is not working in PDF file after converting it. I've spent some time searching the Internet, all I can see are similar issues posted by users and some products that you need to buy. Of course, my approach is to solve it without spending more money of buying additional software which no guarantee of fixing it.

I found this solution provided by Microsoft and it's free to download. Excellent! The add-in is 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS
I downloaded the program, installed, close my Microsoft Publisher 2007, re-open the publisher file. Go to File, and you will see Publish as PDF or XPS added in your program. Checking the PDF file, yes it retained the hyperlinks in my publisher file. Problem solved.

Overview from Microsoft website:
"This download allows you to export and save to the PDF and XPS formats in eight 2007 Microsoft Office programs. It also allows you to send as e-mail attachment in the PDF and XPS formats in a subset of these programs. Specific features vary by program.

This Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS Add-in for 2007 Microsoft Office programs supplements and is subject to the license terms for the 2007 Microsoft Office system software. You may not use this supplement if you do not have a license for the software." (2009, Microsoft.com)

Download the program file here.

This download works with the following Office programs:
Microsoft Office Access 2007
Microsoft Office Excel 2007
Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007
Microsoft Office OneNote 2007
Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007
Microsoft Office Publisher 2007
Microsoft Office Visio 2007

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
