When I try to create a pdf using a pdf writer/printer, or even when i try to save a pdf file, the dialog box showing where to save it appears then immediately disappears before i can choose a name or location to save the pdf. i have tried reinstalling the reader, reooting, reinstalling the pdf writer, nothing seems to work.
Reader does not come with a PDF writer/printer. Which product have you installed for getting the printer?
I have tried multiple pdf writers including cutepdf and a proprietary pdf writer so I am pretty sure the problem lies within adobe reader. Especially since the problem occurs when I just try to save the pdf and not use the writer.
