I’m trying to run DavkaWriter 7 on my Mac but it crashes when I start it. What do I do?

If DavkaWriter on your Mac crashes with the following error:

“The program davwrite.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”

the most likely cause is that DavkaWriter needs a printer to be installed on your system.  If you don’t have a printer installed on your Mac, DavkaWriter won’t run.  To solve this, you can install a free virtual printer called CUPS-PDF from here:


Once this has been installed, go into System Preferences -> Print & Scan and add this as your default printer.  Run DavkaWriter and it should work fine.
