version: zbarimg 0.10

I have two issues with ZBar when running on Windows XP Pro SP3.

1 Images are extracted from a PDF file to a TIFF file then ZBar is used to extract the image from the TIFF file. This process runs on under Windows XP Pro SP3. When this process fails (every so often) it would seem that when I run the exact same command on a Windows 7 PC it works perfectly but fails on the XP box.
command: zbarimg -S *.enable test.tif

2 Images cannot be directly extracted from a PDF file when running under Windows XP Pro SP3. The message returned is '<name>.pdf no such file or directory'. If I then run the EXACT same command on the EXACT same file from a Windows 7 PC, the file is processed and the embedded barcode is successfully extracted.

So question, are there issues with reliability (issue 1) and the ability to extract directly from PDF (issue 2) when running under Windows XP?
