adobe PDF - unable to create PDF files

Hello Experts,

I have my computer running on Win 7, and I have installed Adobe acrobat Standar 8.0 version.

I'm trying to convert word document to PDF....and not able to do it...

1. I try print the file into PDF and I can't view it as installed on printers.
2. if I select the document from my computer, right click ---Convert to Adobe PDF -->
 I got the following message:

Unable to find " Adobe PDF" printer or acrobat distiller" printer
Do you want to run the installer in repair mode?

If I click YES adobe acrobat starts running :  please wait while windows configures Abobe Acrobat 8.0....
Runs , message dissapears like it finished, try convert document... got same message

Any idea what I need do?

Acrobat 8 was out of date and did not work well on Vista. Acrobat 9 and Acrobat X both work great on Windows 7. I had 9 and now have 10.

Uninstall Acrobat completely. Go to Devices and Printers and make sure there are not PDF printers. If so, remove them. Still in Devices and Printers, click on a printer to see the menu bar. Then go to Print Server Properties and remove any Adobe printers.

Restart, and try installing again. Make sure after install that there is a an Adobe Printer and it is hooked up to the PDF port (not COM1).  .... Thinkpads_User

Acrobat 8 has compatability issues with Windows 7 especially 64bit.  eventhough it installs, the pdf printer does not load properly.  Acrobat 9 is listed as Windows 7 compatable.  According to Adobe, 8 is not supported in Windows 7 either 32 or 64
