Since yesterday Acrobat DC (not Reader) does not start or opens any PDF file. At best the program opens for a second and then closes. Re-Install did not help.

 

I am workin on W11 Pro, Version 21H2, 64-bit-OS.

 

All hints on creating dump reports failed until now.

 

What can I do?

Thx in advance

I have a similar problem. About every two weeks Acrobat Reader DC won't open on my Windows 11 machine. Task Manager shows Acrobat in the background processes, but the App won't open. I have tried repairing it and running as administrator but neither fix the issue. My only solution is to reinstall the App every two weeks when this happens. This process is getting old and Foxit Reader is looking more appealing if I can't find a solution.

Hello,
I have done all steps as Amal has described (already several times), but the result is the same. The Acrobat dc opens first time, but when I try to open the file Acrobat dc disappear from screen (Win11, 21H2, 64-bit OS) or give pop up "internal error"

I have done the installation also via Cloud but no difference. This start to be frustrating because I need this software for my work daily bases. Any recommendation what to do next ?
