When I double click on a PDF it takes a long time for Acrobat DC to launch. If I leave Acrobat DC running the PDF file will open in Acrobat DC almost immeadiately. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I've done some research but so far nothing currently listed addresses or fixes this particular problem.

We are sorry for the delay in response and thank you for sharing the dump file.
We have shared the details with our engineering team to get this issue further investigated.
We will share the update once we hear anything from them.
Could you pls. also share process monitor dump for the issue? It would help us further in investigating the issue. The process to collect procmon logs is as below:
Do you think applying the latest updates that were released for May 2020 could address this issue?
I just noticed that Amal was announcing yesterday about the last planned update and just now I noticed that another optional update was released.
Looking at the time that this question was posted until now, the Client is missing the two updates (one planned, one optional) for the current month of May.
I think that aplying these updates can improve the slow startup.
++ Adding to the discussion
Please update the application to the latest version 20.009.20065 and see if that makes any difference. Go to Help > Check for Updates.
Let us know how it goes
As you can see I am already running an newer version than what you posted and it is still taking a long time for Acrobat to open.
HAving the same problems since 2 days. up until now all worked perfectly.
I work daily with pdf's. I cant wait 10 mins for the to load, then have the program crash regularly.
Downloaded foxit reader. works perfectly.
I think you gusy should find the problem and fix it in an update soon
We are sorry to hear that.
Is this an issue with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try with a different PDF file and check. If the file is stored on a shared network/drive, please download it to your computer locally and then try again and check.
Also, make sure you have the recent version 22.1.20169 installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.
You may also try to repair the installation from the help menu (Win Only) and check.
Also, try to reset the Acrobat preferences as described here https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-defau...
You may also try to create a new test user profile with full admin rights or enable the root account in MAC and try using the application there and check.
Wow, talk about a blast from the past. As you might have guessed this issue from over 2 years ago was never resolved. I spent a long time just dealing with the delayed opening but just leaving Acrobat running at all times. It didn't get resolved until I took it upon myself to upgrade to the 64 bit version. Creative Cloud refused to give me the 64 bit version and I had to upgrade manually. Since then Acrobat starts right up.
Thank you for sharing that solution.
Seems like a conflict between 32bit vs 64bit dll's which is common when Acrobat Pro and Adobe Reader coexist together with the Creative Cloud desktop app.
They share a lot of identical system files and system folders.
