Workaround:

  • On Internet Explorer, under "Manage Addons" select "All add-ons" or "Run Without Permission" then choose "Adobe PDF" - disable it

          By doing that, Internet Explorer will start the "Open, Save, Cancel" Dialog and allow you

          to Open the file and print by pressing the Printer icon

  • Install different PDF Reader - like Foxit Reader - it works as intended - when pressing the Printer icon, the print dialog will start

I wanted to add to this, specifically workaround #2. You may need to go under the "Show" option and select All add-ons, then you will be able to disable the PDF Reader add-on. The add-on will not show in the default view unless it is currently running on the PC.Untitled.png

 

@Adobe. Please do not ignore this thread. There was another great thread about this exact topic that was making progress and was then locked after a completely unrelated patch was released by Microsoft that had absolutely nothing to do with the actual issue.

 

This has been an issue for about a month now and it does not seem to be getting much attention by anyone except the community. Microsoft has nothing about it in known issues for version 2004 and I can't find anything from your company regarding it.

Thank you for the comment.

For some reason, on few of the computers I've encountered, the add-on is not shown , although I've chose all Addons.

For this I found it located under the run without permissions area. I will say this workaround was extremely helpful until a fix can be applied.

Thanks!

I'll add the "Run without permissions" section to the main thread 🙂
