ArcMap 10.0, SP2, build 3200
Windows7 64 bit, 6 GB RAM etc
Acrobat X Pro 10.1.0

Trying to print large format vector map using the installed Adobe PDF virtual printer@ 300 dpi, nothing fancy. Used to do this all the time to knock down file sizes and also created archives of maps produced. Not working with 10.0. It grinds in the map, but nothing is ever produced that I can tell. Can't find it nor does it open up in Acrobat when finished. Exporting making files over 120,000 MB for a basic Arch E map...way too big.
