Creating Adobe PDF

"Creating Adobe PDF" task will not close after I print a .pdf document. Even though a document has been created.
1 Solution

What version of Adobe Acrobat are you using? There might be an update for it.

Also - I get this from time-to-time with my Acrobat. If you open task manager (right click on the task bar) and go to Processes that are running and close acrobat.exe, acrotray.exe and any other "acro" things, this will close out the box.

Once you find your version, you can update it to the most recent, here is a running list of ALL Acrobat Updates available:

The thing is that the acrobat software does not always "end" upon closing with either the X or the "file -> exit" command. It has to do with the "monitoring" of acrotray.exe, which is a file that stays open, so when you "print to PDF", it happens quicker, since this is already running. However, when you go to close out the app, sometimes this keeps the app window open. I would rather it "ALL" close out and take an extra second to start up when I need to actually print something, but that is not the way they designed it!

Hope this helps,

Thank you, this is correct, after updating it started to work. The problem was that I needed to print  a few documents without showing anything to an user.
