Unable to find “Adobe PDF” resource files

When you try to convert a Microsoft Office document to a PDF document by clicking on File – Create PDF – From File Adobe Acrobat returns an error, “Unable to locate the following Adobe PDF settings file or other resources: [filepath].” (Example: Unable to find “Adobe PDF” resource files. “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Adobe PDF 6.0\Settings\.joboptions” )

The proposed solution is to refresh the conversion settings for Microsoft Office documents. To do this:

  1. In Acrobat, choose Edit – Preferences
  2. Select Convert to PDF, select Microsoft Office, and then click Edit Settings
  3. Click OK to close the Adobe PDF Settings dialog box, and then click OK to close the Preferences dialog box
  4. Exit
  5. Restart Adobe Acrobat
