I experienced just the opposite - a decrease in file size.
I had an Acrobat file with a size of 1.2MB due to all the xml fields.
Printing it out using CUPS-PDF into a PDF flat file without the XML reduced its size to 116KB.
I suppose it depends upon what the starting PDF file type and size is.

Post the error messsage, either type it in or capture that part of the screen: Shift-Command-4, then drag the cross-hairs to box-in the dialog.
Adobe has free support for installing Acrobat here:
It might be search or post only. Mind you, I have gotten pretty quick response when I have posted questions on their site.

I tried Google Chrome and it has the same problem as Apple's Preview and PDFpen pro:

I was able to install Adobe Reader XI. (I had to quit Acrobat Pro 9).
I still don't see the old Adobe printer driver that used to be available.
The new Adobe Reader seems to have its own print window and does not call Apple's print window either.
When adding text to the fields of a fillable form, you can't save it. One can only print out a hard copy.
I thought we had overcome this issue with Reader but I was wrong.
Another reason to load CUPS-PDF printer driver so you can save your inputs of the fillable form.
