This technote formally extends support for Adobe Output Designer 5.7 to Windows 7 (32/64bit) and Windows Server 2008 R2 (64 bit). This note also explains the required procedure for the product to function properly.

This is due to default security settings in Windows 7 and Win2008 R2 for the Program Files folder, Users folder, and Windows folders and its subfolders. The issues manifest when changing individual presentment targets (ICS files) such as adding a font or changing Font Setup. Changes made appear to work but are not saved.
