More Vista Weirdness: Printing PDF on Vista

As posted earlier, I could not seem to get Acrobat 8 (latest patches) to print correctly from Access Yes I could print, after having followed Adobe’s debug script to re-run install/repair (from control panel) but only in black and white and without being able to specify file location or file replace…(program just hung)

About to give up, I installed some freeware, “bullzip printer” after a reboot, not specified in the documentation, it works like a charm, well it keeps defaulting to black and white but will do color when asked nicely and repetativley!

Why can’t Adobe get this right, they charge a premium price but support committment and bloat are going to kill them.

  1. Adobe has always been like that. They do have some nice products, but their back end support stinks. One thing that’s interesting with Vista, if you had upgraded your machine from XP to Vista, it keeps your XP drivers for the software already installed and Vista uses those.
