Since updating Illustrator I am not able to save PDF files. The error message says "the file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action." I have unistalled and reinstalled both Illustrator and Acrobat DC. Anyone else run into this issue? Or better yet, anyone have a fix for this?

In your Settings in Win10 (control panel for older versions) you can edit how the file extentions are associated with applications. I had to edit that list after some recent upgrade and it solves similar glitches.

When saving the PDF is the option "Open PDF after saving" turned on?
