PDFMaker Add-in Install problem in Access 2007

Some timeago, I downloaded and installed the PDFMaker Add-in for Office 2007.  I have set up an Access application to be able to produce PDFs of reports.  Now I am trying to coach users through installing it.

The go to the web site, download and install it.  After installing it they can do a "Save As" from the Office Button.

But when they choose Access Options or Word options or Excel options, and then choose Add-ins, the PDFMaker does not show up in the list of Inactive Add-ins, and when they select COM Add-Ins and select go, the PDFMaker Add-in does not show up.

Obviously, I must have done something to get it to appear so that I could check it, but cannot remember what.  What am I missing?

Go to Office Button => Access Options => Add-ins option

Select COM Add-ins and click the Go... button

Click the Add... button and navigate to the DLL (on my system it is at: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\PDFMaker\Office\PDFMOfficeAddin.dll

Make sure the Acrobat PDFMaker Office COM Add-in is checked and click OK.

The Add-in should appear in the list of Active Application Add-ins

Update, the third line should read:

Click the Add... button and navigate to the DLL (on my system it is at: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\PDFMaker\Office\PDFMOfficeAddin.dll), select it and click the OK button.
