PDF driver only print .prn

Oct 20, 2009 11:18 AM

I've done a search and can't find any thing about this.


When selecting "Adobe PDF" in the File--->Print section of any Office App (Word, Powerpoint, etc) Adobe asks where I would like the PDF file saved, but the only option in the File Type drop down is .prn.  .pdf is not an option.  How can I get .pdf back?

    In the print dialog disable the entry 'Print to file'. Then you will get a PDF file otherwise you will get a PostScript file with the file extension .prn.

    Go to START>Settings>Printers and select the properties on the Adobe PDF printer. Check the Ports tab and be sure that you are set for the Adobe PDF port, not the Print-to-File port as shown below:
