Acrobat PDFWriter requires a LPT1:printer port

Installing Adobe Acrobat 5.0.5 on Windows 2000 Server and all the components get installed using Custom Install except for the PDFWriter Files as it gives me an error when selecting PDFWriter Files from the Custom Install windows and selecting Next

Acrobat PDFWriter requires a LPT1:printer port .Setup cannot find this required port. The PDF Writer component will not be installed. Add a LPT1:port and run setup again.
If anyone know how to fix this issue, I will appreciate there help

Do you have a lpt1 port on your workstation? or a lpt1 printer installed? On the other hand you can install an lpt1 printer (only adding the driver on windows) and then try the adobe installation.

If you are trying to print a document and create a pdf file, you might try a different program such as deskpdf or pdffill.  Both of these provide a print to file pdf generator that works quite well (and is much less expensive than adobe's)
