Reinstalling the print to file(FILE) port

after installing acrobat on my machine, I realised that my FILE print port for postscript printing had been deleted. Need help to reinstall the print port.

That's not something that comes with Windows by default.

You you must have installed yourself, some time in the past. So all I can say: reinstall it just like you did the last time.

Anything wrong with this advice?

That being the case, then it means the issue is with the acrobat installation. Any pointers on that. I did a full install.

I was able to create the FILE port, but it would not produce a ps or prn file when used by acrobat.

How I produce a .PS file.

I installed an old Apple Postscript and used it's print to file feature. That's a real .PS (PostScript) file.
