    Hi Dennis,

    Thanks you for your prompt reply.

    I have problem with the PDF writer. This creates a PDF file from and document that is being displayed. Rather that printing this document I try to create a PDF file. During this process I get the "out of memory" message. I have about 2GIG Ram and this is not the problem. I think it is the PDF writer itself. Is there a way one could increase the cache memory on the PDF Writer plugin . Sometimes I split a 20 page report into 3 and then create a PDF file. This seems to work. But I need to resolve by perhaps finding the correct drivers for the PDF writer.

    thanks

    regards

Hi Johnson,
My name is Dennis and I hope to assist you.
Your machine is telling you the trouth it has reached the limit of memory when using Adobe in the print mode. I don't know how much memory you have but you need more. If I am printing a document that has 90 or more pages I have the same problem and I have the maximum memory my machine will hold. You can always help the problem by having your machine defragged before you anticipate using memory at the max.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate this solution because I will learn from your rating. Thank
you.

From the info you provided, seems like your Adobe Acrobat Professional wasn't installed properly or there are some missing files.
If you have the installation file, try installing the software again.
(When you click on Yes, nothing happens because adobe cannot find the Installation/setup file on your laptop.)
If you do not have the Adobe installation files, as an alternative download CutePDF writer. Its free and hardly takes any space on your pc/laptop (<4MB)
Direct Download Link for CutePDF
Once downloaded, install the software and follow the steps below:
1. Open the Word file you want to convert to pdf
2. try to print it
3. before printing, the time when u have to select your printer, select Cute PDF Writer as shown in the image below
4. Click on print

5. The Word document will be printed as a PDF file and you'll be asked where you want to save it :)
6. Choose your destination.
7. When the printing is completed, you can open the pdf file in Adobe PDF reader
* You don't need a printer to do this
* You can follow the same steps and print excel/powerpoint files to pdf (or any other file type that you can "print")
Hope this helped!

May be your converter is first trying to locate some specific version of Acrobat Reader and then do the conversion and Acrobat 6 might not be the required version.

How to save in acrobat .pdf ?


PDF (Acrobat) files are a great way to make sure documents are viewed with the correct layout and fonts - even when the recipients don't have the program you used to create the documents. It's also a format that is viewable across multiple platforms. In order to create a PDF file in Windows you need to be using Adobe Acrobat Distiller.
Open the file you want to make into a PDF.
Choose File, then Print.
Use the PDFwriter option when printing from a word-processing application: Choose PDFwriter from the Name pull-down menu in the Print dialog box. Fill in the document information, then click Save.
Use Acrobat Distiller option when printing from a page layout or design program: Choose Acrobat Distiller from the Name pull-down menu in the Print dialog box. Fill in the document information, then click Save.

Missing lines on PDF from a large TurboCad file


Will TurboCAD allow you to export to a .pdf instead of printing to a .pdf? Have you tried printing to a file (.prn) before turning the file to a .pdf? To print to a file, click Print Setup, there should be a box to check to Print To File. Make sure you check that box. Then you should be asked to pick a file format which should be .prn if you are using windows. After you create the .prn file, then open Acrobat and convert the .prn to a .pdf. I hope this helps you with your problem. Printing can be a pain with CAD programs.

Cannot Create PDF from Word Document Using Adobe Professional 6.0


You can try to create PDF file directly from Microsoft Word. Adobe Acrobat Professional installs a virtual printer on your computer. Print the document from Microsoft Word, but make sure you select appropriate printer from the list. It should be called "Adobe Acrobat PDF Printer", or similar.
