I am trying to convert a PDF file into a Word file using ScanSoft PDF Converter 2.0. I get the message 'cannot convert becuause file may be corrupted or incorrect format'. Is there anything I can do to get around this problem?

I'm using ABBYY Finer Reader 7 which is expensive but really good (many languages available)
