Adobe Acrobat Distiller & Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services

I have a Windows 2003 Terminal Server.  
I have installed adobe acrobat 4.0 & Acrobat 5.0 on it.
the program works fine for reading pdfs for terminal server users,
The problem is that I can not print to distiller or create PDF's while logged in as a terminal user.

The print to pdf printer usually shows up when I install acrobat on a standard Win 2000 or win 2003 workstation.
The print to pdf printer does not show up on the terminal serv though.

has anybody elserun into this problem before, or have any idea how to fix it?

Hiya,
no way to use the PDFPrinter in terminal in my knowledge, but only PDFWriter, see: http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/5421UsingWTS.pdf

Extract:
"When creating Adobe PDF files on Windows2000 clients, Distiller Printer, PDFMaker
and PDFWriter are all supported. PDFWriter is the only supported mechanism for
creating Adobe PDF files on Citrix clients."

Cheers

Addandum: The document states that the limitation is for Citrix, but TS works. We had the Distiller requested in five installations, and never worked, neither with Adobe support on site. Hopefully some other expert here is luckie.

You simply print to it like a printer and it creates your pdf document =)
