when I copy a selection from Adobe Illustrator into a pds file in Photoshop, i get an error which tells me that it couldnt perform the paste action, cause PDFL could not be initialized... Can you tell me how I can fix this error ? It used to work , though after I did a format c of my laptop and a clean install of windows XP and the adobe programs, it gives me this error...

Which version of Photoshop? Do you have all the updates installed?
And do you have all the XP updates installed?

My first guess would be that a bad font on the system could cause such an error.
But malware, missing support files, etc. could also cause such a non-specific error.
