First, the license utility to which I posted the URL is supposed to work as
a kind of swiss army knife for licensing -- it's supposed to check all
parameters, not just the temp license. So I'd go ahead and run it to see if
it fixes the problem. If it doesn't work, at least you tried the public fix.

Also, Adobe provides free tech support for all installation issues, and this
is certainly an installation issue. Yes, you have to go through phone hell
to get support, but they usually keep working on an issue until it's

And for Chris's problem, Adobe also says very plainly that you can't have
ANY previous distiller versions on a system with any version of Acrobat. So
if you still have Maker or other components on your system, as you imply,
you may have diagnosed the problem yourself...
