(500 points!) Windows 2003 Server: Cannot print to "Adobe PDF" printer - GPO Restrictions in place

I have a GPO that allows only specified applications to run. I need people to be able to print .pdf's so I have allowed "acrobat.exe" and "acrodist.exe" but I still get an error when I attempt to print to a .pdf.

By itself, Acrobat runs normally. It is just the print function from other applications that isn't working.

Any idea what other apps I might have to allow?

You cannot run Acrobat on the server - for technical and legal reasons. The more important ones are the legal reasons: Adobe does not license Acrobat for server use. Check the EULA that you agreed to when you installed the software. In addion to that, Server 2003 (or any server version of Windows) is not a supported plattform. Certain things just don't work, or don't work correctly on a server.

To print to the Adobe PDF printer, there is another application that's involved: AcroTray.exe. This application is started when you log in.
