Question about Adobe Acrobat 7.0 for PC

1 Answer

I have installed Adobe Acrobat 7 on my laptop that runs on Win 7 platform. However, the installation of Acrobat flashed a warning message that Adobe Acrobat 7 was unable to create a new item: Adobe PDF Port Printer. And, actually, there is no pdf printer port. I did not face this problem when I ran my laptop on Win XP. If there is a technical issue of Acrobat 7 versus Win 7 regarding a pdf printer port, could you please advise how to resolve this problem?

Good Afternoon -
Direct from Adobe, they state that versions 9 and above are compatible with Windows 7, and any versions 8 or prior are not supported and updates to make compatible will not be released. There are two solutions, one that may work and one that will definitely work. The first is to try to install the program under Windows XP compatibilty, natively on Windows 7. To do this, find the executable for installation, right click and select properties. On the comptability tab, click the check box that says: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Windows XP (Service Pack #) from the drop down, and proceed to install, running the installer as Administrator. The other guaranteed way is if you have Windows 7 , any version other than starter, you can enable Windows XP Mode which creates a virtual PC of XP on your machine and integrates the program references into Windows 7. Details on this can be found:

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Compatability with windows 7


Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional is not compatible with Win 7
Adapted from Adobe FAQ

Acrobat 9.2 is the first version to support Windows 7. If you own Acrobat 7 or Acrobat 8, Adobe recommends you upgrade to Acrobat X through your Adobe reseller or the Adobe Store. Upgrading to Acrobat X will ensure compatibility with Windows 7 and access to the latest product enhancements. Enterprise customers with a Gold or Platinum support plan can contact Customer Support for upgrade tips and planning help.

Hope it helps.

I am not 100% certain but I am not sure you can use that old a Adobe version with Win 7. The current Adobe Pro for creating .pdf files is now version 9 for Win 7. That may be part of your problem. Consult the Adobe website and see if that older version will even run in Win 7

When you try to install Adobe Acrobat 6, 7, 8, or 3D on Windows, the installer returns the error message "Error [1311, 1335 or 2350]. Source file not found: [drive name]:\ Adobe Acrobat [version]\data1.cab. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it." If you click Retry, the installer returns the error message "Cannot find the file Adobe Acrobat [version]\data1.cab."
Solution Perform one or more of the following solutions:
Solution 1: Check the Acrobat CD-ROM.

Make sure that the CD-ROM from which you are installing is free of dirt and debris. If necessary, clean the CD-ROM with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Solution 2: Temporarily disable anti-virus software, and then install Acrobat.

For instructions, see the documentation for the anti-virus software or contact the manufacturer.
Solution 3: Extract the compressed installation files, and then install Acrobat.

  1. Right-click the folder and choose Extract All.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions.
  3. To install Acrobat, double-click the Setup.exe file located in the folder that contains the extracted files.
Solution 4: Uninstall the CD-ROM drive and let Windows redetect it, and then install Acrobat.

  1. Right-click My Computer and choose Properties.
  2. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
  3. Expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives section.
  4. Right-click each device listed under DVD/CD-ROM drives and choose Uninstall. Click OK to confirm.
  5. Close Device Manager and restart the computer.
  6. After Windows redetects the DVD/CD-ROM drive(s), insert the Acrobat CD into the CD-ROM drive and install Acrobat.
Solution 5: Install Acrobat from the desktop.

  1. Insert the Acrobat CD into the CD-ROM drive.
  2. Copy the Acrobat folder from the Acrobat CD to the Desktop.
  3. Double-click setup.exe in the Acrobat folder on the Desktop, and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete installation.
Additional Information Errors 1311, 1335, and 2350 occur when the Acrobat installer is unable to access the necessary files from the CD-ROM drive. These same errors may also occur if antivirus software interferes with an installation or if the installation files are compressed.

I cant get the Adobe Acrobat Pro 7.0 PDF Printer to work. It comes up with an warning 20225 code; setup was unable to create a new item.


Hi,
I got 2 possible solutions:

Solution 1: Use a supported installation.
-- If you install Acrobat (Professional or Standard) on a 64-bit operating system, you may see this error. Install Acrobat on a 32-bit operating system.


-- If you install Acrobat to a shared network disk instead of a local hard disk, the Adobe PDF printer is not installed. Install Acrobat on a local hard disk.


-- If you install Acrobat to a directory with a path that contains extended ASCII or double-byte characters, English installations will display the error message. Install to a path that does not contain extended ASCII or double-byte characters.


Solution 2: Ensure that the Print Spooler process is running and set to Automatic, and then repair Acrobat.
1. Select Start > Settings > Control Panel.


2. Double-click Administrative Tools and then double-click Services.


3. Locate the service Print Spooler.


4. If the Startup Type is not Automatic, set it to Automatic:
a. Right-click the Print Spooler.
b. Choose Properties.
c. Choose the General tab.
d. Choose Automatic in the Startup Type menu.
e. Click OK.


5. If the Print Spooler service is not running, then start it.
a. Right-click the Print Spooler line.
b. Select Start from the menu.


6. Start Acrobat, and choose Help > Detect And Repair.


God Luck!!!!
