Here is a link to the original “Adobe Supported” approach to fixing the problem.
_uacct = “UA-1416026-2″;urchinTracker();_uacct = “UA-1416026-1″;urchinTracker();So let’s see, you’ve done everything you know of to get the PDF Maker Addin to work, well there is one thing that I have held back on, a registry edit that will bring them back. This approach is not for the faint of heart, but it is a very easy (as registry edits go) fix and if you do just what I say here (no clowning around in the reg please) then you can’t hurt your machine.Take a deep breath, relax, take a big swig of Redbull and let’s do this thing!Ok first off, this works with both Windows XP and Vista.
- Go to the Start Menu and select Run (in Vista you must go to Start Menu, Accessories, Run)
- On the Run Dialoge box you will see a Browse Button, select that and go to c:\windows\regedit.exe (you can also type it in)
- You should see the Registry Editor come up and look like this
- Now expand the key by selecting the small arrow to the left of the folder icon
- Keep expanding till you get to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\Addins\PDFMaker.Office.Addin (whew, that took a while)
- Now click on PDFMaker.Office.Addin you should see something similar to what is shown here on the right side panel
- Ok almost done, Double Click LoadBehavior and type in 3 make sure the dialoge looks like this:
That is it, now go back to Word and See if it is there, if not, follow the procedure outlined in the previous post.Ok it’s early on Tuesday morning, so I better get to the office, Keep some life in your life!Tim
