Has anyone had an issue with having Adobe x or XI installed and lost ability to export to pdf?

No. But I always use CutePDF to create the files.

No, but we use Autodesk's DWGtoPDF print driver

Here is the interesting thing, I added the post after trying this at home off my work network, then on my network via VPN, and it failed both times. Tried it while hard wired to my network at work this morning and there was no problem exporting to PDF within the Autocad system as it comes without external programs. The reason I like this export method is the layering that is created within the PDF so the user of the PDF can turn off and trun on layers created in the export. So now I am a little unsure why it is having an issue one place and not the other. I suspect it is looking for a file or some driver that is referenced on our server but which is hard to access over a VPN connection. Anyway, I will leave it for the IT folks to figure out. Thanks for your responses

Autodesk's DWGtoPDF print driver includes object layers.
