Printer Name - Adobe Acrobat Windows

I know that the default printer name is 'Adobe PDF' for version 6.0, and in 5.0 it was 'Acrobat Distiller'. I believe it was 'Adobe PDF' for version 4.0 also. Are there any other names that it could possibly be? My company's software looks to see if there is a PDF printer installed, and if it is, it gives PDF as an output option for the reports. We search the printer names for these strings. Thanks...

    It was "Distiller" for versions prior to 6, I believe (why they changed it I am not sure). I think "PDFWriter" might also show up as a possible print driver (in versions prior to 6), but it is NOT the same as Distiller/Adobe PDF.
