Error Acrobat PDFWriter: unable to generate output file.

Hi!
I have installed Acrobat 4.0 in a Win95 OSR2, but when i want to print a default page from Acrobat PDFWriter the message error say:unable to generate output file, cancel job. I tried to reinstall Acrobat 4.0, clean the registry... but the error is always the same. I need to generate diferent files from others applications and i get only the message error or the document go to the local print. I have installed the same Acrobat 4.0 in other PC and it works correctly. Help, please! I haven´t found any information about it.

Sorry, I write from Spain and i don´t speak english very well.

Bye!

First... Check the system compatability on the win95 system.  Make sure that the version of Acrobat is capable of being placed on the win95 machine.  Whats the specs of the system: processor, RAM..
Here is a link that gives you alot of feedback on printing from Acrobat.  This is a great reference point for you.

Hi, Pratigan.
The computer is a Compaq EXD, 1 GHZ, 64 MB RAM and 20 GB HD. I have another similar computers working with Acrobat 4.0 and they are working ok. The only diferent between this PC and the others is the printer, Lexmark S1855. The computer that failed has installed MS Personal Web Server too. I think the problem is a component that it´s not installed on the computer (*.dll, *.ocx...). But I don´t know what it´s. If I don´t find a solution I´m going to install Win95 again to solve the problem.
I haven´t found nothing about it in the Internet.
Thanks for your help, Pratigan!

Hi, Pratigan!
No, i can´t do it. When i try to generate some file to PDFWriter appears the "fatal" error.
The program says i have to change the drivers file to PDFWriter.
Thanks again, Pratigan.

It sounds like you are able to print but only locally ?? Is this true ? If so, can you print a different document created from some other source, like Word, to a network printer ? If you cnanot print from other source as well, then your network printer setup is corrupt, delete the network printer setup and reestablish.
