Stumbled upon this today. Same thing happened to me. Got a "failure" message for every file.


Until I installed the 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS (you can download yours here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=7) on my PC.


I figured that since Kutools does not have provision for converting single doc or docx files to pdf, it cannot know how to convert a batch of files. It only knows how to use a tool which can convert one file, to convert any number of files. So, it first needs a tool which can convert one file. Then it will automate the process of converting a number of files for you with that tool.


Kutools Rocks!
