That's typical of the error message you'd typically get if the Acrobat printer port is not set to a File port (in the operating system File: with a colon, but not when you're discussing the generic kind of file).

Time to try the Repair installation, and if that doesn't fix it (don't be too surprised if it doesn't), do a reinstall. Art Art Campbell art.campbell at gmail.com "...
