Frankly, I don’t see how Adobe gets away with this. What would be the reaction if the Microsoft Word reader was incompatible with Word? Much bad karma, most likely. Must be the Cool Factor…. which I enjoy.

Missing Adobe PDF printer driver Well, if Reader is so incompatible with Acrobat it would be a GREAT idea if Adobe's installation software for Reader checked for an installation of Acrobat before installing itself. (Duh!) <-Hint to Adobe That being said, except for this single problem I've had no other conflicts with Reader and Acrobat being installed together. But there really is no need for installing both of them. I thought I was installing only the browser plug-in when I updated via the Norton security suggestion.

It was a Acrobat update that finally did the trick, BTW, but since FM is linked to Distiller, it seems to me that should be part of its update function, but maybe not. I'm just reporting what worked for me. Despite occasional problems like this I've never had to reinstall either application from scratch. Another note: It was an update to Acrobat Reader 11 as a add-in to my browser through a security recommendation of my Norton security software that originally triggered the problem of losing the PDF printer. Craig As Dave Stamm pointed out, it is highly likely that your problem was caused by conflicts between multiple versions of Acrobat/Reader; and Dov Isaacs, Adobe's PDF guru, has warned against multiple installations countless times. If you have Acrobat, do NOT install Reader! http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/problems-installing-removing-acrobat-reader.html -- "Acrobat and Adobe Reader have numerous components that have similar functionality and can cause conflicts on a machine. The most prevalent among these conflicts involves the plug-ins for rendering PDF files in the browser, PDFMaker inside Office Applications, and the Adobe PDF printer."
