Adobe Acrobat Reader Reports No Printers are Installed

    Adobe Acrobat Reader Reports No Printers are Installed

    Symptom
    You launch adobe acrobat reader and try to print a document. Immediately afterwards, you receive a message that states: "Before you can perform print-related tasks such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer."

    Cause
    Adobe acrobat cannot determine the existence of printers and their default selection.

    Solution

    1. Close Acrobat or Reader.  

    2. Click Start > Control Panel > Printers (Windows 7).  

    3. Look for a default printer, which is designated by a green check mark.  

    • If there is a default printer, right-click on a different printer and select Set As Default Printer.  
    • If there is no default printer, right-click on Adobe PDF and select Set As Default Printer.  

    4. Open Acrobat or Reader, open a PDF file, and print to your preferred printer.
