Acrobat X Pro Keeps Crashing and I Can't Redownload It

My Acrobar X Pro kept on crashing after being open for about 5-10 seconds on my Mac (Version 10.9.5). I tried to look onto the community for answers and I read that when some people deleted the program and then redownloaded it, it fixed the problem. I deleted it from my Mac and tried to redownload it from my Creative Cloud, however, there's no way to redownload the program. I even tried to download the program from the CD but I kept getting an error message ERROR: DW003.

I've tried to reach out to customer support, but now they're saying that my licensing isn't genuine, and that couldn't be the case because I've had this product for years and have never had any issues until now. Can someone please help me???

It started crashing for everyone with a non-updated version of Acrobat. By reinstalling you lost your updates. So...Update to Acrobat 10.1.16. https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotes/10/10.1.16.html

No. Adobe stopped offering downloads of the installers for older versions, unless they were originally purchased as a digital download.

Also, these two things are not mutually exclusive: "I've tried to reach out to customer support, but now they're saying that my licensing isn't genuine, and that couldn't be the case because I've had this product for years and have never had any issues until now."

If Adobe is claiming your application is pirated then the burden is on you to prove otherwise. The fact it worked in the past is not proof. Where did you purchase it from? Did you even register the serial number with Adobe? Do you have proof-of-purchase, or the original packaging with the serial number on it?

So to answer your questions in order: no I did not purchase this program. It was gifted to me over 6 years ago from someone who purchased it from a college store. I have registered this product with Adobe and I do have its original packaging (the CD and box) and serial numbers. 

 

Now there has been some changes since I last wrote this post. I decided to delete/remove all programs related to creative cloud and then reinstall them via CD. After doing so, I re-entered my serial number and it was accepted. Everything is in working order, EXCEPT for Acrobat X Pro. Every time I open it, it stays open for 5-15 seconds and then it crashes.

The link on here works: https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotes/10/10.1.16.html

But that's not the one in your post, that's just what it says on the page.

No, this thread is about Acrobat X (10), not XI (11). Notice the versions. You need 11.0.23, not 10.1.16.

Hello,

 

I have the same issue. I have Acrobat X Pro 10.1.1 installed as part of the CS6 suite.
"Check for updates" inside Acrobat X Pro doesn't find any updates.
I tried installing the AcrobatUpd10116.msp file but I get an error message that says: "The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing. ..."
I tried 10.1.12 as well and getting the same error.
I also tried 10.1.2 ans still the same error...

What can I do?
