Exporting to PDF from PageMaker 7.0 in Classic

Since upgrading to 10.4 I have been unable to export to PDF from PageMaker 7.0.1. Adobe tech support says there is a problem with the Adobe Postscript driver. I have downloaded and installed a new Adobe PS driver but still get a message that says Adobe PS cannot be used because of an internal error. There is a code (-30581). Anybody having this problem?
Did Adobe say your copy might be corrupt, or there was a general incompatibility between AdobePS and your Classic version, or what please?
I don't happen to know a specific solutioni, but you might try this workaround, even though it sounds rather klunky until you're used to it:
Use Apple's own Desktop Printer Utility to built a virtual Desktop Printer using Translator Postscript, which will automatically be set as the default Classic printer, even though it doesn't actually appear on the Desktop, and should be accessible through either AdobePS or Apple's own LaserWriter driver.
Tell that to print to File, which should produce a .ps file that will double-click open in Preview, which can convert to PDF.
