 I am trying to play with the BEAMER example, on a computer on which I just installed Windows 8 Pro.  When I select Preview PDF the compilation seems to go fine, but then the program gives up with the message that my pdf viewer (Adobe Reader) cannot find the swp0000.pdf file. Nor can the file search utility!  Where might it be? How can I set the destination directory for such things?

This file is stored in a temporary folder. You can change the location of the temporary folder by choosing Tools, User Setup, Files. Find the File Types box on this page and scroll down to Temporary Files. Click on it and click Modify to change the location.

Also, saving your file before compiling a PDF should mitigate the problem.
