Well you're in totally the wrong place to ask that question but don't worry, it's because of Adobe's rather confusing labelling of some of these forums.  Go to this forum and you'll get more help.

Anyway, you're right it is called something like that, Adobe PDF Printer it says on my Acrobat 8 XP version, this is assuming you have Adobe Acrobat installed....?

Did you post on the other forum?  I can't see a post from you there.

Anyway, about your questions, do you have Adobe Acrobat?  If so you should have a printer that you can print to called Adobe PDF.  If you do have Acrobat installed but don't see that as an option in the printer list something has gone wrong with your install.  Post on that forum with your OS (Windows 7) and the version of Acrobat you have.

I just checked and realized that I don’t have acrobat, just the reader. Is the acrobat a free download or do I have to pay for an upgrade?

Thanks,

Rich

Well there's your problem.  Acrobat will cost you a few 100$ but does many things apart from making PDFs.  To do that most Office applications will do a 'Save as' to make a PDF, or for a quick PDF printer I've found Cute PDF quite good and it's free.
