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. ;- )
