In addition to Stuart's accurate assessment, you're really unlikely to
get SaveAs in FM 7 working with a current version of Acrobat because
the name and location of the PDF printer has changed over the years
since FM 7 shipped. So if you install Acrobat 9 properly, FM 7 has no
way of knowing the new location because it didn't exist when 7
The easiest fix is to install FM 7, install Acrobat 9, and use File >
Print to produce your PDFs.
