Monochrome.ctb plot style table missing

Has anyone had the problem with the monochrome .ctb plot style table not showing up in the plot dialogue for AutoCAD Architecture 2010? Typically it seems to be standard upon install of the software. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Are you being offered CTB files as the choice for your plot, and it is just the monochrome.ctb file that is missing?  Is your drawing set up to use color-dependent plot styles?  If not, you will not be offered any CTB files as a choice, only STB files.

 

Start new files with a template that uses the desired plot style type; use the CONVERTPSTYLES command to change from STB to CTB, if necessary, in an existing file.

I also have tried to use the Cute PDF Writer, and it will not allow me to plot in black, along with the monochrome issue, and not being able to convert this drawing into PDF, I am at a loss for options, any help would be appreciated.
