Vista PDF printing problem

T has a problem printing PDF files from her Vista PC. The print server is a Solaris VM running CUPS and all other documents seem to print without any issues. It appears that selecting Print from the Adobe Acrobat Reader application doesn't send anything to the print queue.

The reason I'm blogging about this is the result of T noticing that she never gets a mention and therefore "Why don't you blog about it and see if anyone knows the answer".

What is this? A Helpdesk? :-)

This has now been fixed by the upgrade to the new OpenSolaris server.

I'm guessing it was something simple like enabling the octet-stream datatype in CUPS.
