I've got the same install sequence (Acrobat 4.0 after TJBeam). Did you uninstall
the previous version (3.?) of Acrobat and the reader before installing the newer
version? I seem to recall something about a conflict if you left both on your
system. Also, read the read.me in /Program Files/Adobe/Acrobat 4.0 for info on
Other than that, I can't think of anything. I get the PDF writer in the printer
drop down box when printing from TJBeam. From there it's a no-brainer.

I use Retaining Wall Pro 5 (Enercalc) and print into PDF. Sounds like your
install for Acrobat 4.0 didn't make the required "printer" for file creation.
