Re-instill document?

I get the attached error when trying to print a PDF document.  "re-instill a document" What? I have no idea what that means and a web search brings up no information.

There's nothing attached to your post, but I'm guessing that you misread it — it probably says "re-distill", not "re-instill". What that's referring to is Adobe Acrobat Distiller. Look in your Adobe Program Group and you'll find it. Regards, Joe

It's not an error — it's an informational message that warns you about copyright restrictions. If you are the rightful owner or have permission from the copyright holder, then click Yes; if not, then get permission from the copyright holder. I was on a thread recently here at EE that discussed the same issue (with the same exact dialog box that you posted):
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Document_Imaging/Adobe_Acrobat/Q_28650060.html

Oh, you may be wondering about the "re-distill" term. That's just the fancy term Acrobat uses when printing the PDF. In other words, when you click Yes on the dialog above, it will print (aka re-distill) the PDF file. Regards, Joe

I never got the error before?  When I click yes - I tells me I need a license or continue in trial mode.   I don't want this to pop up every time I do to print.  I click trial mode and it prints ok, but I assume that will the "trial"  will end at some point?

It sounds to me as if you're printing to the Adobe PDF printer, which is a print driver that creates PDF files, but is only a part of Adobe Acrobat, not part of the free Adobe Reader. Is that what you're doing — trying to create a PDF file by "printing"? If so, I'll give you several recommendations for excellent, free PDF print drivers; if not, tell me what you're trying to do.

Our messages just crossed — one of my recommendations was going to be Bullzip. :)

There are two separate issues going on here:

(1) The "license or continue in trial mode" issue has to do with the PDF printer software that you're using. The only way you should see that is if you're using a trial product, such as one of the Bullzip products that is not free. The free one is here:
http://www.bullzip.com/products/pdf/info.php

You may want to try something besides Bullzip. Two other excellent, free PDF printers are CutePDF and doPDF:

http://www.dopdf.com

(2) The "copyright" issue is because that document has permissions on it. My guess is if you look in the title bar, you'll see "(SECURED)" there. And if you click File>Properties>Security, you'll see some "Not Allowed" restrictions in there.

Regards, Joe

I  have been using Foxit PDF  on the other work stations in my office.  Installed it  on this one and  no problems.

thanks

Yes, Foxit is another good one. Here's my standard list of free PDF print drivers (in case one doesn't work and you want to try some others). Eight good ones are Bullzip, CutePDF Writer, doPDF, Foxit Reader PDF Printer (part of the Foxit Reader install), Nitro PDF Creator (part of the Nitro Reader install), PDFCreator, PDF-XChange Printer (part of the PDF-XChange Editor install), and PrimoPDF:

http://www.dopdf.com
http://www.foxitsoftware.com/Secure_PDF_Reader
http://www.nitroreader.com
http://www.pdfforge.org/pdfcreator
http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-editor
http://www.primopdf.com

They have varying features and some folks prefer one over the other, so you may want to experiment to see which one you like the best. At one time CutePDF was my favorite, then it was doPDF, and my current choice is Bullzip. But, in this case, it seems that Bullzip is not the right one for you, while Foxit is fine. Go figure! :)  Regards, Joe
