    I am getting the following error when I run pdflatex:

    Syntax Error: Expected the optional content group list, but wasn't able to
    find it, or
    it isn't an Array

    It SEEMS to build correctly, but I am just trying to figure out why this is
    happening. The following code triggers the problem.

    \begin{figure}[hbtp] %[!t]
    \centering
    \includegraphics[scale=0.55]{figures/illustration.pdf} 
    \end{figure}
    

    Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

    Here is the additional information:

    output of pdftex --version MiKTeX-pdfTeX 2.9.4535 (1.40.13) (MiKTeX 2.9)
    Copyright (C) 1982 D. E. Knuth, (C) 1996-2012 Han The Thanh TeX is a trademark
    of the American Mathematical Society.

    And here is a link to the pdf causing the issues: https://www.sugarsync.com/p
    f/D6819494_1990813_6559556

    Although I don't know what the problem is exactly with the pdf, it IS a
    problem with the pdf. I created it using the dopdf printer. I created the same
    one using cutepdf, and pdflatex compiled without any errors.

    On a somewhat-related note: if anyone has recommendations on a nice, free pdf
    printer, let me know! I've used dopdf for awhile, which seems to work just
    fine for regular pdf viewing. I think that cutepdf will become what I use for
    tex documents from now on, unless people have other solutions.

    And if anyone is able to identify exactly WHY the dopdf version isn't working,
    please share!

    Thanks!

    Note: I asked the question here, and someone suggested it was a MikTeX bug, so I wanted to
    post it again on this forum. Thanks!

    Sorry, cut-and-paste error. the title should be "Syntax Error: Expected the
    optional content group list, but wasn't able to find it, or > it isn't an
    Array"
