Adobe Reader Error Message: Before you can perform print-related tasks… you need to install a printer.
I keep getting the following annoying error message when trying to print from Adobe Reader 9.
Before you can perform print-related tasks such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer.
Adobe has a knowledgebase article on the exact problem and describes the solution to it. It does fix the issue, however in a couple of days the error message simply reappears. I’ve included the temporary fix below, but I would like know the REAL fix to this frustrating issue. If you know of a method to fix it for good, please let me know.[ad#Adsense Centered]
- Select Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes (Windows XP) or Start > Control Panel > Printers (Windows Vista).
- 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 your printer and select Set As Default Printer.
