When exporting from ArcMap to PDF, for example, ArcMap just stops or hangs.
ArcMap is most likely unable to create the intermediary metafile (EMF) that is necessary for any output. It may or may not display an error message, such as "Cannot Map Metafile".
Perform the ArcMap output diagnostic test by trying to export to EMF. See the related link below for more information on how to perform this test.
