    Hi maniyuri.

    Maybe you need to have installed previously the PDFCreator.

    This software simulates a virtual printer, but it translates the print preview of your PCB in a PDF file.

    I don't know if Eagle has a function for to convert directly a PCB layout in a PDF file, but you can be sure than PDFCreator runs perfectly.

    I usually use the PDFCreator for to convert schematics, layouts and other kind files in PDF files, with no care to source program used.

    Adobe Acrobat professional - if you have it you will not ask such questions and you can create PDF virtually from any application.

    You can also export directly as png, then convert that to pdf with Photoshop or other programs. I have not tested how accurate that conversion is.

    There are various pdf generator programs. I use win2pdf. Most have a demo version which will work but will add either an extra page with a copyright notice, or a header/footer.

    There is also a pdf option built into Eagle. Go to "print" and instead of selecting the printer at the top, select "print to file(pdf)". Type pdf in the help for more information.
