I wrote a small python script that exports all mxd's in a folder to PDF's, but I get the following error in PyScripter and I don't know why...:

The python interpreter has whole bunch of red in it:
Found 5 mxds for PDF exporting...
Directory: C:\Users\is0009\Desktop\temp

Exporting Rural_OCP_map_1_17x11.mxd to:

EOFError: [Errno 10054] An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host

Below is my script that I am trying:
The script is placed in a folder with a bunch of mxds.

#Import python modules
import os, sys, string, glob, arcpy
from arcpy import mapping

#Set local variables
mxdLst = glob.glob('*.mxd')
mxdCnt = len(mxdLst)
#Place script in same folder as MXDs to get 'current working directory'
baseF = os.getcwd()

#Print how many mxd's found
print '\n' + 'Found ' + str(mxdCnt) + ' mxds for PDF exporting...'
print 'Directory: ' + str(baseF) + '\n'

#Loop to process each mxd into a PDF
for mxds in mxdLst:
    PDFr = mxds.replace('mxd', 'pdf') #Replace 'mxd' extension with 'pdf'
    print 'Exporting ' + str(mxds) + ' to:' + '\n' + str(baseF) + '\\' + str(PDFr) #Print current mxd exporting and output pdf name...
    inMxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(mxds) #Make current mxd in loop the mapdocument
    arcpy.mapping.ExportToPDF(inMxd, PDFr) #Export mapdocument to pdf
    print 'Done exporting: ' + str(PDFr)
del mxds
