I run 6 companies in QB Pro 2006 and after the R7 installation one of my companies has hung up on a laptop and desktop requiring a reboot of each computer.

How do I know which patch is installed on my system? Also, lately I have been having trouble with printing to PDF. In short, my Acrobat Distiller print driver is missing from Quickbooks only. All other programs still list it and it works fine. Could this be due to an update removing this printer from the available printers list? Has anyone else seen this happen? Thanks. Mario

Hit F2. In a white box in the lower-middle of the screen you'll see a list of all updates installed. The bottom update is the most recent.

I still have my Adobe PDF listed as a printer and I'm running RB 6-29-06 which appears to be an update just after R7.

Thanks, Tara. My version is V16.0D R7 06/27/2006...I'm running QB Premier 2006 Manufacturing and Wholesale Edition. I have uninstalled Acrobat 5.0 and re-installed a couple of times now and it will not list in QB as a printer. Distiller is listed in all other MS Office apps and works fine. Interesting note here...I keep a backup on my notebook and I have not updated QB there (it's still running R6) and my Adobe Distiller printer is listed. I can only conclude it's because of the update.

FYI: "RB 6-29-06" means a rebuild was run on the date.
