Adobe PDF Printer stuck on spooling, crashes Word and Excel
Posted 10 December 2012 - 04:44 PM
Windows XP Pro (all updates are current)
Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro (version 9.5.2, current)
Office 2000 (SP3, current)
I have tried uninstalling adobe and office and then reinstalling them. When I uninstalled, I also used CCleaner to remove any registry entries for those programs. Before reinstallation, I also removed the print drivers and the ports associated with them. I tried to be as thorough as possible for the uninstalls. The problem was exactly the same after reinstall.
I have tried to use CutePDF to print from Word and Excel. While using CutePDF does not crash the programs, it just hangs on "printing" indefinitely.
I have purchased an updated version of Word (2010) to see if this would fix the problem, but the issue presents in the same exact way whether I use 2000 or 2010 Word (i.e., Word becomes non-responsive and the Adobe PDF Printer gets stuck on spooling).
I am completely at a loss as to why this is happening. I am not even sure which program is at fault (especially considering CutePDF doesn't work either). Any help would be appreciated.
