Printing a pdf file from Acrobat causes Thunking Spooler APIS from 32 to 64 Process crash on network printer on Vista 64bit.

A user with my organization is trying to print a pdf file to our Konica Minolta network printer.  When she tries to print the document, she gets a Thunking spooler APIS crash (Screenshot of crash below.)  After clicking close program, Acrobat reads that the file could not be printed.

I've included the error report from Microsoft below.  She is running Vista Business 64bit.

You should try updating the drivers for the Minolta printer on the computer. What's the model number of the printer?
You can search here: http://onyxftp.mykonicaminolta.com/download/Search.aspx
Search for a 64-bit Vista driver for your model printer. If you find one update the driver on the user's computer and try printing again.
also ensure she is not running any other Adobe versions.   Control panel - add/remove programs.  Multiple versions of Adobe screws things up
