    The driver shows up as Acrobat PDFWriter/clientname/sessionnumber, but no
    prompt for path/filename. Any ideas?

    What driver is being used on the server side for the auto-created printer?
    You'll need to make sure that the driver being used is either the same as the
    client (not a PCL/PS BasedUniversal or fallback driver) or an EMF Based
    Universal Driver (i.e. Thinprint, triCerat Simplify Printing, Citrix PS 4.0
    UPD III)

    It is the same driver. Adobe AcroBat PDFWriter 4.0. All of the local
    printers show up and the client can choose and sucessfully print to any but
    the Adobe.

    Thanks Patrick. The deployment link you provided appears to be certified
    with pdfwriter 5.0 on w2k advanced server using Citrix. I am using
    pdfwriter 4.0, on w2k standard server/RDC instead of Citrix. I also
    installed CutePDF on the server and on the client, but it only shows up as
    being on the server in the printer list. In other words it there is no
    CutePDFWriter/clientname/sessionnumber to choose in the printer list on the

    Why not just install Cute PDF on the server and you won't have to worry about
    the client, as you can select the save location (for the PDF file) on the
    server or on the Client Network.

    Spend some time googling, and I'm sure you'll find a similar document on
    Acrobat 4.0.

    Acrobat 4.0 is an old piece of software, which does for $300 what you can
    get for free or less than $30 from software that's designed to work on TS or
    Citrix. Unless you own many licenses for Acrobat 4.0 you might want to
    consider switching to a newer product.

    Remember that if you're running Acrobat on TS you need a license for every
    connection, which costs thousands of $$$.
