I am running Adobe Acrobat 9.0 Professional under Windows 7. The PDF printer does not print, although its printer driver appears under Devices and Printers. In previous versions, I remember having been asked where to save the converted document. It just doesn't happen here; the document is not converted - or printed - at all.

Wow.  It doesn't look like you are alone.

Here is a comment (one of many) about Windows 7 and Acrobat 9.

I had Acrobat 9.0 with updates through 9.2 and Microsoft Office 2007 on my laptop for several months an all worked fine. With Update 9.3 no other program, including Adobe products, can not Print to PDF in the print menu.
Examination of preferences file in Acrobat 9.3.4; Convert to PDF, shows that I can not edit the settings because it can not access the settings file.
This all started with the 9.3 update….

When I installed Adobe pro 8 in my new windows 7 ultimate the nightmare started! Adobe should not released adobe 9 family because all have problems. In orther for me to keep working I had to create a pdf printer by adding a local printer and loading the driver from adobe cd acrobar pro 8 & also got a free pdf “cutepdf” from the web until I figurate out both win 7 & adobe CS4 installation issues (nightmare installations errors 2, 1603, etc)
thanks to all for all your comments!

An alternate is a FREE and simple installation of CutePDF writer, it is faster than the Adobe Printer driver, anyway.

This seems like a decent program, but I tried installing it and it still had the same error message pop up.

Actually I am trying to print from AmiPro 3.1, and so now I know that it's not just Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 that brought up this error; even CutePDF Writer shows this when I try to print with it...

"AmiPrint - Couldn't begin printing. Check to see that the printer is enabled and the disk is not full. AmiPrint has been paused."

Perhaps this question has to be moved to another zone, then? One that deals with printing problems? How do I do that.

I would suggest that my question be moved to a zone that solves AmiPro problems...

The suggestion for another program to substitute what I am currently using seemed to be helpful, but for the implementation of some other problem in the future.
