My Acrobat PDFMaker Office COM Addin have stopped working after Adobe DC Pro have been updated with June 2021 update.

I have tried to register the DLL and what else I could find on the WEB.

I can press "Save as Adobe PDF", and get to choose a file location, but the document are not created.

If I choose "File" - "Print" and choose the Adobe PDF from there, everything works.

I have tried to repair the Adobe PDF Pro DC as well.

Any ideas ?`Thanks

You may need to manually uninstall and reinstall the add-in in MS Office.

 

Sometimes, in the case of Microsoft Office,  add-ins and plug-ins don't update automatically when the source program is updated.

 

You may also want to force an update of the Micrososft Office program that is using the add-in.

 

Did you checked with the update release notes if this issue is mentioned?

I too am having this issue with 45 end user workstations.  There is no error message.   The Office product just simply crashes to desktop.   I have performed all the above suggestions without success.

I comfim, it happens on all my workstations..around 30 users that use it frenquently, the only workaround i found till now is.

 

1. Uninstall Acrobat DC

2. Install an older version.

3. Disable Update from adobe.

 

This problem is real just tried to install the latest package from june 2021 and the PDFMAKER is not working in office (all 365 up to date installations). i have to manualy reinstall several staions. What a mess.

 

Please fix it and keep up updated!

Hi

 

We are aware of one issue with PDFMakers and engineering team is working on the fix. To confirm that it is the same issue you are facing, can you please temporarily replace this file "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\libeay32.dll", with the libeay32.dll present in Acrobat install folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\" and check if the problem goes away ? Please note, that this is just to check what the issue is. Replacing this DLL might cause issues with other apps. So keep a back up of the original file and revert once the test is done.

 

Thanks
