Office 2007 professional and Adobe 8 Professional problem

When converting a work doc to adobe I recieved a fatel error and word shut down. Since that time I can not longer open a word doc through adobe. I recieved a notice that I'm "missing PDF maker files". Also the short cut adobe icon no longer shows up in my tool bar when word or excel are open. I tried the repair portion on the installation CD for both office and adobe, did not help. I competly removed the office suite and adobe, reinstalled them and that did not help. When the notice comes up that I'm missing the PDF maker files it ask if I want to run installer in repair mode.
After running the repair mode it still makes no difference.

    i am facing the same problem

  • eclipse7 Feb 29, 2008

    I use adobe 8 on a regular basis making word docs and converting them to adobe files. Along with the converted docs I pull data off various manufactures web sites and combine them into one document. So its very helpful software in my business. I unloaded my office suite and adobe, reloaded starting with Office XP Profesional and adobe 6. Up dated adobe to 8 and everything worked fine. I then loaded office 2007 Profesional and started having the same problems. So it looks like I will need to revert back to Office XP until adobe comes up with a fix.

    Same problem. Running Vista with Office 2007 and Adobe Acrobat Pro 8, the "acrobat" tool bar is gone from my ribbon and when i try turning the word doc into a PDF via Acrobat Pro, i get the missing "PDFmaker files" any good fix out there?

    I am having the same problem, too. What I am doing now is 'print' doc files to pdf rather than convert them directly. But still, the content are not all readable especially with images or text that are pasted from 'image'. It would turn out to be a gray patch. But if I read these converted files with the other computer with MS Office 2003 and Adobe Pro 8., no problem at all.
    Is it because of compatibility problem?

Very simple fix. Now and then after an Adobe Acrobat update Office will disable Adobe Acrobat as it is an add on. All you need to do is re-enable Adobe Acrobat. In Office 2007 goto Word Options, Add-ons, and at the bottom of the page is Manage. Click on the down arrow and select Disabled Items and click on GO. Re-enable Acrobat and you should be fine. In Office 2003, goto Help and selects disabled macros and re-enabler Acrobat.

Hope this helps

Hi you all, there is a compatibility issue b/w office 2007 and adobe pdf 8. First, office has an add-in pdf that do the same thing, and you can download it from MS.Second, don't use adobe file menu to create pdf-that is when you get the error pdf maker missing;use Msword to print to a pdf driver in your printer que-after all this what creates a pdf file. Instructions: File,Print,choose PDF printer and pdf is created. Cheers.

Usually that means that you need to restart your computer and re-install Adobe reader 8.0 and Office suite and if that doesn't work try re-installing your operating system then install Adobe reader 8.0 and Office Suite. Hope this helps =)

Hi Bill,
why on earth would you want to convert a word document to Adobe Abrobat PDF Format.
The 2 formats are completely different languages.
You,ve caused a program/system error conflict, between the 2 programs.
try installing an earlier version of Adobe, i.e version 5-6-7 then update to version 8. earlier packages of software were complete installations, whereas upgrades, only update the existing software. Also i,d recommend using an earlier version Of M$ Office. 2003 et,c.
Hope this helps Mike @ Compurepair.

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.

Failed export to a word document from Adobe Acrobat 9 professiona

I am not sure that I would calssify this as a real solution but I had the same issue on an XP machine running Word 2003 (with the 2007 compatibility module).

When I took the exported document to a Vista machine with Word 2007, it opened it fine.
Of course, I think it converted or imported it to 2007 format.
The Vista machine does have more memory in it and a better processor but not that much more/better.

So, don't despair, there probably IS a way to read it and edit it, but possibly not with the machine you are on (sorry).

I am still researching to see if I can find a work around for the XP machine.
