Print to PDF saves as text document!?

Occasionally when I print to PDF in SolidWorks using Adobe PDF the file saves as a text document and opens in notepad saying:

"The system cannot find the file specified. C:\NewFolder\Draw1.pdf" with the drive, path, and PDF file type specified.

 

The text file overwrites the PDF (if overwriting an older PDF) and I have to delete the text file in order to save a new PDF, otherwise SW just keeps saving it as a text file.

EDIT: I don't need to delete the text file anymore. SW/Adobe will overwrite or delete the text file when I re-PDF the drawing.

 

Has anyone encountered this issue? Any suggestions on what I am doing wrong?

 

Thanks

-Sarah
