    Can you please provide me with some details so that I can try to resolve the issue:


    1. Was the crash happening before updating Acrobat to 9.5?

    2. Whether crash is happening while printing any file to PDF or printing a PDF to a physical printer?

    Is the crash happening with other files also? If its a physical printer, can you tell the printer model.

    3. What OS you are working on?

    Thanks for the detailed inputs. I believe it has got to do something with incorrect installation.


    Please try Help-->Repair and it should resolve the problem.

    The update to Acrobat 9.5 created similar printer problems for me -- everything was fine until I tried to use Acrobat. On Windows 7 I did a system restore and was able to print from Word, Firefox, and other programs UNTIL I tried to open and use Acrobate to print a PDF. Then my printing sub-system was shot. I got the same "Before you can perform print-related tasks such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer." error message and then a Windows error mesage mentioning that the print spooler isn't started. But that is only a symptom -- the problem here is the Acrobat 9.5 update. I did another System Restore and am again able to print from all other programs but I will not use Acrobat until another update is pushed out that corrects this critical flaw. Or if someone can tell me a legitimate way to avoid this from happnening again when I use Acrobat.

    Try deleting the adobe pdf printer and repair Acrobat ( from control panel in case of windows).
    One more thing to ask, is the printer you are trying to print a Network printer ?

    Thank you -- I will try this and see what happens. No, the printer is

    local (attached via a USB cable).

    I am sorry, but this did not solve the problem. After completing the

    Repair and restarting my computer I was able to print successfully from

    MS Word and other programs. Once I opened Acrobat and attempted to print

    my printing functionality was ruined and only a Windows System Restore

    brought back my ability to print from other programs. I am now afraid to

    print any PDFs or use the PDF printer driver at all.

    I had similar problems after the latest Adobe update.  I was not able to print from a web browser, email, Office, or Acrobat.  I also received the "you must install a printer" error message.  When I looked in the Control Panel for installed printers the Control Panel itself froze and was unable to open up the printers folder.  At times, Office documents would not even open to begin with.


    This occurred on a machine running Acrobat 9 Pro, with Windows 7 (that also has the most recent Acrobat Reader plugin/update for Firefox).  The same problem also occurred on several machines in our office running the latest, most updated Acrobat Reader software.


    We ended up having to boot into safe mode and remove Acrobat from the list of startup items.  The problem so far has not resurfaced since removing Acrobat from the list of startup programs.


    There is definately an issue that was replicated here on several machines with the latest update.
