So somehow or another my PDF writer that comes standard with every computer (I think) is gone and I can no longer create PDF's. I have tried reinstalling the version of acrobat that my company uses and running all the updates and that didn't work. I tried downloading a 3rd party writer like cutePDF writer and a couple of others, and that didn't work.

Is there any way, other than reformatting my computer, to get this back? Any information would be great. It's been a frustrating couple of weeks since I create a lot of PDF's from ACAD files.

I am running windows XP professional with service pack 3 installed.

A .pdf writer is not standard issue.

Users either search the Web for one that's free and install same (if such exist) or generally use the Adobe paid version.

A .pdf reader program is not even standard issue, but many are available for standard download/installation.

If you bought a system where such was already installed...you probably ought to start thinking about using the recovery/restore software which came with such system. Or contact the manufacturer of the system for recovery/restore CDs.
