I've just upgraded from Acrobat 5 to Acrobat 7.0 Standard on a Windows 2000 SP4 system, and I can't print to the Adobe PDF printer. The macro buttons in Word and IE work fine, but if I select the Adobe PDF as a printer, I get a message saying:

"There was an error found when printing the document "Microsoft Word - test.doc" to My Documents\*.pdf. Do you want to retry or cancel the job?"

Printing to a test page front the printer properties works fine.

I've tried changing ports, uninstalling, reinstalling, making sure acrotray.exe and acrodist.exe were running, changing permissions, being logged in as administrator, everything I could think of, with no luck.

Any ideas?

Well, we paid money for this product, so we're kind of hoping to get it working.

Thanks for the suggestion, though.

It was more to determine if Word or Adobe was at fault
