  • So the PDF creator is virtual and Office local?

    If PDF creator calls office, there should be no problem at all, as virtual applications can see the underlying OS including their applications. However you should make sure that Office is installed on your Sequencer machine.

    The other way round (launch Office and have a button/menu there to PDF creator) won't work that way. For that scenario, the easiest way is to create separate Shortcuts (Word-with-PDFcreator). This also can be doe during Sequencing (shortcut wizard step - new shortcut -> point to Word..)
