    I had hoped that Parallels 7 would fix a file association problem that I am having, but no such luck.

    I use Adobe Acrobat to create a pdf file from multiple files of different types, including word, excel, pdf, and jpg files.

    In Parallels Adobe Acrobat does not recognize Word and Excel files as supported file types in Adobe Acrobat.

    This makes Parallels unusable in my work environment which relies heavily on the use of Adobe Acrobat to create daily pdf files from a variety of sources.

    Adobe works fine in a standard windows machine or in VMWare Fusion. This problem only occurs with Parallels Desktop.

    Please, provide more information about your problem.
    What version of Adobe Acrobat do you use in Windows?
    What version of MS Office in Windows?
    Do you have MS Office for Mac installed on Mac? What version?
    Could you provide a step by step instructions to reproduce the issue?

    Adobe Acrobat 9.4.2
    MS Office 2007
    Office for Mac 2011
    Start Abobe Acrobat. Got to File...Create PDF from Multiple Files. Try add a mixture of file types (Word, Excel, jpg, pdf) and you will see that in Parallels Adobe Acrobat does not recognize Word and Excel as supported file types, even though they are in fact supported file types and work in other Windows systems.
