Default How do you get the PDF Maker on Word?

I have Word 2002 and Adobe Writer 5.0. I have had it as a toolbar option on
previous computer, but not able to add it to new computer.

Default How do you get the PDF Maker on Word?

A few things to check:
1. Make sure the PDFMAKER.DOT and PDFMAKERA.DOT files are in your
Word 2002 startup folder. In Word, click on Tools | Options | File
Locations, to see where your startup folder is.
2. In Word, click on Tools | Macro | Security | Security Level. If
your macro security level is set to High, then either change the
security level to Medium, or add Adobe to the list of trusted sources.
See http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/as...356731033.aspx
"Modify the list of trusted publishers for macros" for more information
on how to do the latter.
3. In Word, click on Tools | Templates and Add-ins... under "Global
templates and add-ins", is PDFMaker.dot listed as a choice, and is it
checked?
4. In Word, click on View | Toolbars... is PDFMaker listed as a
choice, and is it checked?

While the PDFMaker.dot add-in will work in the Word startup folder, the
Acrobat installation will attempt to put it in the Office startup folder
which for Word 2002 is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE10\STARTUP.
If your version of Acrobat pre-dates Office 2002 and you don't have the
latest add-in update, Acrobat's installer has no way of recognising this
folder, so you would have to install the add-in manually. The add-ins you
will find in a sub folder of the Adobe folder in C:\Program Files
