have you tried

Open Control Panel, select Printers
 Click Add a Printer
 Click Add a local printer
 Select Use an existing port (should be preselected), change the port to Desktop \*.pdf (Adobe PDF Port), click Next
 On the next page, click Have Disk&
 Click Browse and browse to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 8.0\Acrobat\Xtras\AdobePDF (or wherever you have Acrobat installed), click OK.
 It should now show a series of Adobe PDF Converter entries. Select the first one and click Next
 Change the printer name if desired, uncheck the box to use it as a default printer, click Next
 Do not print a test page, click Finish
 Find your new printer in Printers. Right click on it and select Properties, Advanced
 Click Print directly to the printer, click OK
