We can better assist you if you can describe your trouble in more detail. Does it crash on start up or when you click a certain button? Is the projection incorrect? I'd be happy to help if you can give us more details.

I had installed the plugin and when I restart JOSM it show the message: "the plugin pdfimport was not found. Delete from preferences?" I am using the Windows 7 and it happened both in the tested and latest JOSM version.

For your information, I've tried the plugin v26224 with JOSM v4223 running both under WinXP and WinVista and it is working without problem. Perhaps it's a specific Win7 problem or a conflict with another plugin you're running? (PDF Import takes the vector data from a PDF and puts it into a new layer. It needs the geographical coordinates of 2 points in the PDF-drawing in order to properly scale and place the vector data in OSM.)

I haven't tried this JOSM plugin. There's not much information about it. But looking at the code in trac, we can see it was developed by user 'extropy'. A Latvian chap. You could click 'send message' to contact him about it directly. Maybe you could link him to this question.

Alternatively you could ask a different question. Describe the type of PDF you are trying to convert and see what software/procedure people recommend. Direct conversion to OSM data may not be the best approach.
