Failed to print a .PDF document over a network printer

I recently tried to print a PDF document on a PC installed with adobe reader over a network printer connected directly to another PC. But every time I click print, the PC asks for an output filename and I go on to put in a file name but the document doesn't get printed and yet other Microsoft word documents just print so easily. How can I disable this setting of output file name so that I print directly without being prompted for it?

Software/Hardware used:
DELL DESKTOP WITH WINDOWS XP

Hi,

In the first instance check to confirm that you have selected the right printer when you click on File Print from the adobe document window. If it is the right printer, i.e. a physical printer and not (Adobe PDF/OneNote/ etc) then check at the bottom of the printer dialog box and make sure Print to File is not ticked. If it is ticked, untick it and try again.

Let me know if this helps.Kind regards
