I have suddenly lost the functionality of the "Adobe PDF" option (on the File, etc Toolbar) in Word 2003. Instead of giving the normal options such as Create PDF, etc. all that is there is "Other" which when clicked on takes you to a Bluetooth option. I can still ceate a PDF using the Adobe Printer option. I am using Adobe Acrobat 9.5. Any suggestions?
Thank you for your response. I did go to the COM Add-ins… tab in Word 2003 and there were no add-ons listed. Do you know where I would find the Adobe Add-on in Word in order to enable it? BTW while the Adobe PDF tab is not functional, the Adobe Comment tab appears to be functional if that is relevant. Also, I reloaded Adobe Acrobat 9.5 and that did not solve the problem, nor did performing a Word repair.
Thank you for any help you can provide.
I too have lost the ability to use Adobe PDF printer functions. I have been all over this forum for an answer to avoid paying Adobe $39.00 for a fix. I am running Acrobat 10 Standard, version 10.1.8. and have done the repair twice, did a complete uninstall and reinstall, and applied the 10.1.8 updater. Still not working.
When I attempt to print from an Office 2003 or Office 2010 file, or even a PDF file using the Adobe PDF printer, it always hangs and does not open the file save dialog box as it used to do (to name the file). It then says process not working and windows 7 closes the program. A popup states "Access is Denied". Happens this way every time I attempt to print to the Adobe PDF printer.
Is there anyone that can help point me to a solution?
UPDATE: I just tried the "File > Create PDF > from File" and had the same problem. Popup says "Access is Denied", and the Office program crashes.
I am not sure. To the best of my knowledge, PDFMaker should work fine for this combination. Office 2003 and AA 9 are compatible and AA 9 normally works on Win7, though Win7 is not a specified system for AA 9. There may be an issue with 64-bit systems, but OFFICE 2003 is also a 32-bit process and so I would expect it to work.
I have WORD 2007 on this 32-bit Win7 and AA 9.5.5. My WORD>Options shows that I have the "Acrobat PDFMaker Office COM Addin." You should be seeing something similar in WORD 2003.
To troubleshoot, bring up the printer in a application, select the Adobe PDF printer and select Print-To-File. Hopefully this gives a file. Then open the file in Distiller and see if a PDF is created (or you get errors in the Distiller window). I suspect you may be having a problem with AcroTray not running in the background.
You did not indicate your Acrobat version or if Win7 is 32 or 64 bit.
I did indicate my version above as Acrobat Standard, ver 10.1.8. However I did not indicate that I am running Win 7 Home Edition, 64 bit.
I just attempted to Print to File from an Excel 2003 document using the Adobe PDF printer and in hanged like all the other attempts. I already checked that Acrotray is enabled. Any further ideas?
