    Default Re: "before you can perform print-related tasks. you need to install a printer" adobe

    Select a default printer or change the default printer.

    1. Close Acrobat or Reader.
    2. Select Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes (Windows XP) or Start > Control Panel > Printers (Windows Vista).
    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 Adobe PDF or a printer.
    Error: "Before you can perform print-related tasks? you need to install a printer" when trying to print to Adobe PDF (Acrobat 7, 8, or Reader on Windows)
