Adobe PDF missing

HI

A client of mine, using Adobe Creative Cloud, has somehow lost the "Adobe PDF" printer object
I tried reinstalling the device but  I keep getting the following error :
Printer driver was not installed. Unable to find a core driver package that is required by the printer driver package. Error : 0x00000002

Have repaired from withing Acrobat DC, from Windows Apps & Features, have uninstalled reinstalled Acrobat DC
Nothing seems to allow the "Adobe PDF" object to reappear

Any ideas ?

thanks

Adobe PDF" printer object .... Printer driver was not installed.

Try this:  

1. Uninstall Adobe Acrobat completely.  
2. Clear the Print Spooler

Open cmd.exe with  “Run as administrator“.
(a) Type net stop spooler then press “Enter“.
(b) Type del %systemroot%\System32\spool\printers\* /Q then press “Enter“.
(c) Type net start spooler then press “Enter“.
The print queue on your Windows should now be cleared.

3. Restart the computer.
4. Install Adobe Acrobat DC again and updates. There have been Adobe Acrobat DC updates in the last 48 hours.

If that is true, uninstall Acrobat and do a non-disruptive Repair Install of the OS , restart and try again

You can also use System Restore to restore the PC to the state before that issue happened.
