Since I updated to Inventor 2013, every time I try to print an idw as a pdf, it prompts Windows to configure Navisworks Simulate. Message says the feature is on a CD-ROM or removable disk that is not available. The odd thing is Navisworks Simulate is already on my computer as part of the Inventor 2013 installation. Should I reinsert the CD that has Navisworks on it? If I just keep hitting cancel it eventually gets to the pdf creator and everything works fine then.
Any ideas what is causing this? I am thinking of uninstalling the Navisworks.

I installed the free Bullzip printer, not due to any problems, but because it not only does pdf's well, but allows anything you print to also be saved as a png, tiff, jpeg, etc. Never had a problem with it yet.
Use the Export>PDF will keep Layers in the PDF. We use Adobe Acrobat if we need to "Print" to a PDF
Thanks for the replies. The "Export to pdf" works well for me. Also, we were able to get the "Print to pdf" to work by installing service pack for Navisworks.
