Installing a new printer while Acrobat or Reader is open and then trying to print to it sends it to the wrong printer
After installing a printer while Adobe Acrobat and/or Reader is already open and has a PDF open, attempting to print to it prints to a different printer, even though the new printer appears in the list. Acrobat/Reader must be closed and reopened in order to print to the new printer.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Open Acrobat or Reader.
2) Open a PDF
3) Install a new printer
4) Attempt to print the PDF to the newly installed printer (it appears in the list of printers)
5) The PDF prints to a different printer.
Environment: Windows 7 64-bit. Acrobat version 11 or Reader version 11.
Expected result: PDF prints to newly installed printer
Observed result: PDF prints to a different printer
Workaround: Close and reopen the application after a printer install.
Are you facing this issue with Acrobat DC as well?
