    Those fonts will not helpyou. You need access to the fonts which came with Acrobat in the first place. These should be in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 11.0\Resource\Font (I think). If this has the necessary four Courier files, make sure that this folder  is listed in Distiller's font locations.


    A frequent cause of this is allowing a font manager to work on all directories in the system. That is not a good thing.

    I have a disadvantage here, because I can only look at Acrobat X at the moment. But while you seem to have everything you need, I'm still puzzled by the CourierC files. Did you put them in there?

    As TSN mentioned, font managers can be a problem. Glad you found your solution and letting us know. It helps verify what TSN mentioned.
