To all:

I had to uninstall and reinstall my copy of Adobe Acrobat 8 Pro a
while back. It's a legal copy and I have the original packaging
w/serial number, etc. It's installed on a single computer.

At the time of reinstall, I don't remember whether I was asked to
activate it.

It has worked well until this week. Now, when I print from
WordPerfect to "Adobe PDF" as my printer, I get an error message
telling me I need to activate Acrobat. When I open Acrobat, the
activation options are greyed out.

I can always re-re-install <g> Acrobat, but I was wondering if anyone
here had any other ideas...?
