If I try to create a pdf with the MapComposer the pdf created is corrupted and I can't open it.
Moreover when I must choose the name of the pdf to create I can't browse to a directory where save it. The pdf is saved in the QGIS directory by default.

Since Windows doesn't support pdf writing nativelt, you need an external pdf creator/virtual printer. I use the free CutePDF Writer component to create pdf documents in Windows.

With it all the prints with the MapComposer work fine for me.
