Acrobat Distiller was just renamed to Adobe PDF. It's the same type of logical printer.
Check your ports... you need to have a printer port marked FILE in order to print to a file. Should have been installed by default, I think, but it can be created manually too. Just in passing, although you can generate a .ps file from the Adobe PDF printer instance, it will automagically create the required .ps file and distill it without intervention. When it works the way it should. ;- ) On 9/2/06, Eduardo F.
