Thanks, that's exactly what I did.... Too much time wasted trying to find the cure for 8.1
Robert,.Acrobat 8.x came out, lived its life, and past into "End of Support" as Windows 7 was released..So, yes if you need to be in Windows 7 then you have to use a newer version of Acrobat..While Acrobat 9.x (once updated to 9.2 and then updated sequencially through all Acrobat "9" updates to accomodate Windows 7 updates) "works" in Windows 7 it is not fully functional.The specfic issue is that Acrobat 9.x PDFMaker does not work in Windows 7. Microsoft made some significant changes to Windows 7 "print substrate".Note that Acrobat 9.x family reaches "End of Support" June 26, 2013..Acrobat X (fully updated) is the first release of Acrobat to be compatible / fully functional in Windows 7..With all that said the only Acrobat that is provided by Adobe is the current release (the Acrobat XI family).If you desire / need Acrobat and you are in Windows 7 (or, for that matter Windows 8) you must be in Acrobat XI.Yes, there's a cost --- the inevitable "overhead" of going to a new OS..Be well...
Acrobat 8 is not supported on WIN 7 Refer system requirements http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/po...Also Adobe has stopped support for Acrobat 8 long back i.e. in NOV 2011.Best way out IMO is to upgrade to Acrobat XI if you want to use WIN 7 or WIN 8Or else use WIN Vista or XP to continue with Acrobat 8Hope it helpsRgdsPM
