Windows 7: Can't Print Adobe PDF Files with 64 bit Windows 7 Premium

Can't Print Adobe PDF Files with 64 bit Windows 7 Premium

I got a new computer last month. When people send me Adobe PDF Files I can't print them with 64 bit Windows 7 Premium that is on my new computer.

I have Adobe Reader 9.3.4 . Is there an add on I need so I am able to print? It must have already been on my old puter with XP.

Thanks bunches Dorothy

What exactly happens when you try to print? Btw: Foxit that Lemur suggests is a lot better.

Yeah, he should be able to print with Acrobat, by why force him?

A box pops up. On the shaded outer area of the box it says "Adobe Reader" on the inside of the box in the middle it says " this document could not be printed"

Thanks for assistance. Dorothy

hi dot love the name,
if you use ms office you could export the pdf to office then print from there.

Dorothy, can you print a pdf from a website? I just want to make sure the files sent to you haven't been corrupted.

Also, you could try starting Adobe Reader, click on HELP, then REPAIR ADOBE READER INSTALLATION. It's worth a try.

FYI -thought I'd contribute my fix:
Had a user that was suddenly unable to print PDFs locally or to network printer; all other docs (Word, excel, html, etc.) printed fine:
* Updated Adobe X reader and reboot machine.
* Ran other updates that were ready; flash and java
* In Adobe X reader view->preferences->general unchecked "start in protected mode" and closed any/all adobe docs.

Various PDFs printed fine.
