If you get: Error: QuickBooks can’t complete the current action due to a missing component: Missing pdf file component, there are three steps to take in order to resolve the issue. The error causes you to be unable to email invoices, print in pdf format and other printing problems. First, update your version of QB by clicking on Help and Update QuickBooks Desktop. Allow the update to complete and reboot the software to completely install the new files. Try again.
If you still get the error, try installing the QuickBooks Tool Hub which includes the utility called Print Repair Tool, (large green button in the Hub). Google the Hub and download the file to install. Follow the prompts to do so and when you are ready to run it close all programs first.
A third try would be reinstalling two programs. Uninstall both QB and Adobe Reader from the Control Panel. Reinstall Adobe Reader first and then QB. Make sure you have the install keys and license number. You can get those by opening QB, click on Help and then About QuickBooks.
