Adobe Reader Does not recognize any printers

Jun 17, 2010 4:01 PM

The other day I was trying to print a .pdf file and a error box comes up saying "Before you can perform print-related tasks such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer." I asked my manager and he said try installing Adobe Reader 9, because we had 7. That didn't work. I can print from any other program, just not Adobe Reader. So I was hoping someone could help me on here!

    Do you have a printer set as default?

    I also have this problem that Adobe Reader will not print, but this only occurred for me after installation of MS Office 2010.

    The proposed solution of changing default printers does not work for me!

     

    Does anybody have a real explanation as to what causes this problem and a real solution for it?

     

    I have already tried re-installing Adobe Reader 9.3.4 and this had no effect. I am using Windows XP with SP3.

     

    thanks for any help ....

    Try deleting and then re-installing your printer driver.

    This may happen because you have a network printer set as default and it is not available.  Set a local printer to be the default printer.  Worked for me!
