As it was written under bug #8912 I hereby ask to reopen this bug for the windows plattform, it looks like linux is working well.
The import/export of pdf formats is currently not possible with the latest Windows QGIS.
QGIS version 2.2.0-Valmiera
QGIS code revision c3a2817
Compiled against GDAL/OGR 1.10.1
Running against GDAL/OGR 1.10.1
Also gdalinfo.exe is not working correclty.
$ /cygdrive/c/OSGeo4W64/bin/gdalinfo.exe --version
GDAL 1.10.1, released 2013/08/26
$ OSGeo4W64/bin/gdalinfo.exe rumney_farmforest_geopdf.pdf
... and is not recognised as a supported dataset name.
Other binaries from other sources work. It looks like the gdal-toolchain needs an update (Missing pdf libs?). Thank you.

Here is the full gdalinfo on Windows error message:
ERROR 4: `rumney_farmforest_geopdf.pdf' does not exist in the file system, and is not recognised as a supported dataset name. gdalinfo failed - unable to open 'rumney_farmforest_geopdf.pdf'.
Expected gdalinfo output:
Driver: PDF/Geospatial PDF Files: ..\\..\\..\\..\ umney_farmforest_geopdf.pdf Size is 5700, 5250 Coordinate System is: PROJCS["NAD83 / New Hampshire", GEOGCS["NAD83", DATUM["North_American_Datum_1983", SPHEROID["GRS 1980",6378137,298.257222101, AUTHORITY["EPSG","7019"]], TOWGS84[0,0,0,0,0,0,0], AUTHORITY["EPSG","6269"]], PRIMEM["Greenwich",0, AUTHORITY["EPSG","8901"]], UNIT["degree",0.0174532925199433, AUTHORITY["EPSG","9122"]], AUTHORITY["EPSG","4269"]],
Tagging works on the commandline with:
gdal_translate.exe -of PDF geo-example.tiff test.pdf
But geospatial PDF import/export is currently not working 'inside' QGIS on Windows.

Thank you for your quick response. Yes, http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/ is the correct place for this, I got confused after creating my account.
Is there already a bug entry for this problem in the osgeo4w tracker? Thanks for forwarding this problem to the right source.
