    I assume you have to Adobe PDF printer selected. Try printing to file and then open the file in Distiller to see if the basic print function works. Some time needs to be taken to track down the problems.

    Acrobat 8 is not Windows 7 compatible. Some people have more success with 32-bit Windows 7. Try choosing a generic postscript printer, then try printing to file. See if you can manually open that postscript file in Distiller.

    The update to 9.2 for Acrobat 9 provide Acrobat 9 with Windows 7 compatibility.

    However, only Acrobat X PDFMaker supports Office 2010.

    With Acrobat 9 in Win 7 you should be able to print to the Acrobat virtural Printer to obtain PDF but this precludes having an output PDF with Bookmarks, links, etc.



    Be well...

    It also depends as suggested on the 32-bit or 64-bit system that you did not indicate. Several folks have been successful with AA8 and 32-bit systems of Win7. A few have reported success with 64-bit systems, but not many. You also indicate AA8.0. As a result, I would suggest you first do a repair (can do from the Acrobat help menu or the programs list in the control panel). The go to the help menu and do the updates. You will likely have to do several. When you are done, then you will probably need to reboot (not necessary until you finish the updates typically). The combination of the repair and the updates may resolve your problems. There will probably still be programs that will not work with PDF Maker, but that is a different issue.
