I had Adobe Acrobat 5 running on XP but, since I have bought a new computer, running Win. 7. AA 5 is no longer compatible. I used it to print the receipts - Using Adobe Distiller - for my own records, of online purchases and paying bills. Can you recommend a .pdf maker that would essentially do the same as Adobe's Distiller?

You are just printing?

by seanferd In reply to .pdf's

Loads of "print to PDF" drivers are available.

As a matter of fact, if you have Office installed, you probably already have one, otherwise, you download the add-on and install it.

Have you tried running the Adobe app in compatibility mode for XP?

Compatability mode

by techietonya In reply to .pdf's

The ones recommended above will certainly work if you are just trying to create PDFs by printing to the PDF driver. However, if you want features like combining pages, etc and still want to use your version of Acrobat, you might want to consider compatibility mode. This allows you to run older programs in Windows 7. I tried it with an older version of QuickBooks and it worked like a charm. Just load your CD but close out if it auto runs. Then browse the CD and find the setup file. If you right click that set up, you'll have an option to troubleshoot compatibility. Here's a link for more information.

Works fine even in Win7 64bit.
