Windows 7 x64 and Office 2013 refusing to print

On a Windows 7 x64 system with Office 2013 and Adobe Acrobat 8 installed, I was unable to print in M$ office (worked fine in other Windows applications). Office always returned that there is no default printer installed and it was unable to print, regardless of the printer I chose from the list. Checking event log, I found out that on restart of the Windows printer spooler service and on first print, I got an error that the spooler was unable to load AdobePDF.dll in Event log. Therefore I had to remove the Adobe PDF printer driver from the subkey of:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows x64\Drivers\Version-3

And everything worked fine again (except Adobe PDF printer of course, but this printer wasn’t really necessary anway).
