I didn't get any responses, but I figured out that I only get the message when I use Font Navigator. My guess is that when I activate fonts through FontNav, Distiller objects for some reason. I guess it expects fonts to be activated through ATM or whatever.
But once Distiller settles down and gets it knickers untwisted, I don't get the error message anymore. And it's more of an idle threat anyway -- Distiller doesn't actually close.
Are you using a font manager? Which one? I'd be curious to know if you also get the message during and/or after using it to activate (or de-activate) fonts.
Hello, I had this issue with Acrobat 9.0 v.946 but resolved my issue with x64 Vista Ultimate as follows:
- Open Acrobat Distiller
- Click Settings
- Click Font Locations
Open Windows Explorer and Navigate to EACH listed Font Location
- Verify there are FONTS in each location, .ttf is a good giveaway.
- When you find a Windows Explorer location listed in Distiller with No Fonts do the following:
- Go back to the Distiller-Settings-Font Locations screen, highlight that location and click the Remove button
- Continue viewing folders in Windows Explorer until you have verified that fonts are listed in all the other Distiller-Font Location-folders
- Close both Distiller and Windows Explorer
- Reboot your system
- Now here’s the tricky part:
- After sign-on Do Not Touch your mouse or keyboard for Five Minutes
- Watch your mouse icon as it swirls while loading background applets
- Watch your network icon slowly, ever so slowly change from X to O indicating connectivity.
- If you screen blanks out, just move the mouse cursor enough to get the screen back and the cursor where you can see it.
- After Five Minutes – if you have not received the message--Acrobat Distiller must close--this procedure worked for you.
Hope this helps some of you.
Update: MS Admin Events indicate that a HDD might be corrupted. Chkdsk indicated bad clusters, new drive ordered - in other words - this was the problem all along
