While I was gone, we upgraded to Frame 7.0 and Acrobat Professional 6.0.

The IT person uninstalled our old Frame 5.5.6 and Acrobat 4.0.5 and deleted
their directories.

When he installed Frame 7 and Acrobat 6, and declined to install Distiller 5
from the Frame 7 package, he noticed that the "Acrobat Distiller" printer
was not present.  (The installers did notice if there were older/newer
versions of Distiller present.)

It seems that the printer instance for producing PDF using Distiller 6.0 is
now "Adobe PDF" printer--he did not know that.

To get the "Acrobat Distiller" printer to appear, he installed Distiller 5.0
as well.  So on my system, I have Distiller 5.0 and Acrobat Professional 6.0
(including Distiller 6.0).  The installation order was usually Frame 7
before Professional 6, but there were exceptions.

How bad is this dual install?

Can we just uninstall Distiller 5.0?  Or do we need to uninstall the whole
shooting match?

Final question:  when you "Save as PDF" in Frame 7.0, does it matter which
printer instance you have selected as your printer?
