    Thanks. I was kind of figuring that it won't work, but I figured it was worth a try.

    I used X7 Educational Edition to publish to .pdf with no problems, and now with X8 EduEd I get the same satisfactory result. There, now that you have been given that quite useless information, if you Google "Publish to PDF crashes WordPerfect", or similar wording, you will get some links to perhaps relevant information. I will leave it to you to decide if it would be worth your time to go through information found through those links.

    I had WP X3 on my main computer with Win10 and it worked fine. Only issue I had was it wouldn't update [probably a bit too old] but having the download of X7 I removed X3 and installed X7, works fine also. I did get some better/newer choices in the Format, Labels for current Avery-type labels which was a great plus for what I need. Since I can install X7 on 3 devices I've got a couple of Notebooks to do this week. My first computer back in '92 had WordPerfect for Windows 5.1 and I took the college class for WordPerfect 5 for DOS, learned a lot.

    Oh, and I just did a Publish to PDF, no problem. It doesn't identify as to which edition it is, just version 17 but includes Presentations and QuattroPro.

    I know this is an old thread and I apologize for reviving it, but I resisted upgrading to Win 10 specifically because i had numerous 'legacy' programs that scuttlebutt said wouldn't work with 10.

    One of the most important (to me) is WordPerfect X4. Worse, I have a number of macros that I sweated over and I don't know if they will work with a newer version (last time I upgraded WP they had to be re-coded, IIRC). I could easily switch to Libre Office or almost any other word processor (except Microsoft) but for the macros.

    I've seen posts all over the internet that say if you upgrade to 10 from 7 that WP and other Corel programs such as Draw, Paint and Ventura 10 will work fine. And then I've seen posts that say they won't work properly.

    Can someone give me a definitive answer?

    I have Win 7 X64
