Is there a way to make document image writer show up as a printer on a 64 bit system?
I installed office 2007 and applied the office tools for the imaging.  It shows to be installed but the 64 bit system doesn't list it in the printer options.  

Can the registry be hacked to force it? or is there another method that will work? We use this functionality for importing documents into our database.

Thanks!

Looks like it's not available for 64 bit Windows.

If all you need is a PDF printer, there's tons available, working on modern systems.

My favourite is Bullzip.
