Block the addins from Adobe. For now just select the PDF "printer" and use the other method to create the PDF. This is NOT an offer to get Adobe 6.0 to work again but how I work around this issue. If you feel it needs fixing I think you should take it up with Adobe, Microsoft and all the parties involved.
I am using a Dell model no. 4550 computer running Windows XP Pro as my operating system. I use Office 2003 Pro to run the Excel program. To convert the Excel spread sheet to the pdf format I have been using Adobe Acrobat program 6.0.
In the past the Adobe Acrobat icons were pinned to the Excel program where I would just click on it to convert the Excel spread sheet to the pdf format. Lately, however, I noticed that the Adobe icons do not appear in the Excel window and I am not able to convert the spread sheet to the pdf format. When I attempt to convert I receive the following message: "PDFwriter not installed." I did a search for the PDFwriter and it is installed.
My question is how do I get the Excel program to recognize the Adobe program? I should mention that the Word program does show the Adobe Acrobat icons. I also did a remove/install of the Adobe and Excel programs but to no avail.
