Error in Printing pdf - Before yo-u can perform print-related task such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer

Dear Community,
 
I have a big problem in printing pdf files in Adobe Acrobat Pro Extended 9.0 Everytime I want to print, there's a message box saying "Before you can perform print-related task such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer". Before I can print properly without this problem then suddenly, this problem occurred. I can print on my printer in any MS Office application only on pdf and windows 10 photos, have a problem. in windows 10 photos, I change the default in windows photo viewer and I can print properly. The only pdf has a big problem now. I am working as Executive Secretary and most of my documents are pdf files.
 
I try other solution from the internet. I change already the default printer and run as administrator but still the same.Please, I very need your help to fix this issue.
 
Hoping for your possible response to fix my problem.
 
Thanks & best regards,
 
RODY

"Acrobat 9 is very old, not supported by Adobe any longer and not compatible with Windows 10. Problems with it are to be expected.

You can try running it in Compatibility Mode with an earlier version (like Windows XP), but that's about it."


Looks like you need a newer version of Acrobat then version 9.0 to work in windows 10 its not compatible at all.

Hi Sir, thanks for your response. I just refresh my OS to windows 10 and install the Acrobat 9 and now it's working properly.
