I get the same crashing problem with my MBP, but when I tried printing from Preview.app it works!
As it is a pain for me to remove all my printers (one at home, four at work, and one at my parents house), I looked into possible other solutions. The only thing I can get to work is saving the PDF out as a .jpg. The document prints fine once in the picture viewer.
I am working on a Macbook Pro with Acrobat 8 (latest update)
I can't reproduce the problem but from the information (avidreader) posted, it looks like the problem occurs creating the list of printers before you actually get to select one and print. Perhaps some other printer is visible to the machine and has some characteristic that Acrobat or some other component is choking on. You might try changing the default printer, or removing other printers or disconnecting from the network to see if you can get past that point and isolate the printer it doesn't like. Of course, this is speculative so the problem could be elsewhere. Worth a try, though.
i know im bringing back an old dead thread, but i have been having this problem for weeks now and just got to the point when using a differ computer was too annoying.
long story short, the guy above me is a GOD. i am on a windows 7 computer and had this problem. I read this thread, removed all my printers in the device panel, re-added the one i was trying to use (my default) and tried once more. it worked like a charm. no hang-ups no delays. right to print window and onto paper.
someone give that guy a cookie and close this thread.
