maybe it is of interest for someone, so here is the solution.
With the help of the sysinternals tools I was able to find out, why
FrameMaker didn't showed my joboptions.
With the uninstall of Acrobat 8 a registry entry was deleted.
It was the path information of "AcroDist.exe".
FrameMaker first tries to find this registry information (the path to
acrodist.exe) and when it is not found, FM states "No Distiller
installed" and stops to find the needed information about the joboptions.
Unfortunately, the repair function of Acrobat wasn't able to solve this
After inserting that registry entry, FrameMaker is showing my joboptions
