Importing PDF files in version 8 Trial

Hi,



I am trying V8 and having problems in importing some files. For example, in
the documentation we find about the command *Import*



- Import content from password-protected PDF files.



-  <http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/Import.html> Import and
<http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/Export.html> Export support
PDF Version 1.5 and *earlier*.



-  <http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/Import.html>
Import["file.pdf"] converts the pages of a PDF file to Mathematica vector
graphics.



-  <http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/Import.html>
Import["file.pdf"] imports a PDF file, returning all pages as a list of
graphics.



The following, however, does not work in Version 8 /Trial (it renders
*$Failed*) but the same construct does work in version 7.01.



Module[{fullfilename, filename =  "Marshalian-Walrasian =
Equilibrium.pdf" },
fullfilename = FileNameJoin[{NotebookDirectory[],filename}]; pdffile
=Import[fullfilename]]



The construct, anyway, works for other files in V8.



"Marshalian-Walrasian Equilibrium.pdf" is a version 1.3  PDF file
(password-protected, as I think), but according to WRI, PDF files version
1.5 and *earlier*, are supported.  I am also having problems in importing my
own MS *.rtf files (Office 2003) although I am able to import my own *.xls
files made with office 2003 too.



Any help?



E. Martin-Serrano
