Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader at same time on a PC

Hello, 

 

I would like to have Adobe Acrobat Pro and Adobe Reader (32bit is ok) on a same  Windows PC.

Cause:  In case I need to disable the acrobat-licence for the user, he should be able to view PDFs.

 

I know that Acrobat automatically switches back to Reader View.

 

But in case the PC is used by multiple Persons, acrobat requires a login....

In case there would be also a Adobe Reader, other Persons can still use the pc.

Hi there,

 

Hope you are doing well and thanks for reaching out.

 

If you have installed the 32-bit Acrobat Reader application, you will be automatically upgraded to the 64-bit version of Acrobat Reader.

The 64-bit application is a unified application for Acrobat and Acrobat Reader. If you have installed Acrobat Reader 64-bit and you purchase an Acrobat subscription, the Acrobat Reader 64-bit application will upgrade to become a fully functional Acrobat 64-bit application and vice versa.

Unfortunately, Adobe made it impossible to do that, unless you use different versions of the two applications, and even then you might get all kinds of strange conflicts between them.

Unfortunately, Adobe made it impossible to do that, so the only solution is to install a third-party PDF reader (such as Foxit) and set it as the default PDF reader.
