When closing PDF files, Adobe crashes with the below error. PDFs open compleltely fine...just when closing them do we have an issue. Any ideas for a fix for this? Have tried repairing Adobe, various setting changes within preferences, and re-activating with no luck. Version we are on is 2020.005.30362.
User popup message
AcroCEF.exe – Application error – The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Clock OK to close the application.

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that.
Please go through the help page https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader-discussions/application-unable-to-start-correctly-0xc0... and see if that works for you.
The error in this link doesn't match the error we are receiving. Please advise. Further, worth mentioning, is this is a Windows Terminal Server. Thank you.
Have you tried the steps shared in the help page shared above. PLease try to repair the Microsoft visual C++ Redistributable and see if that works.
You may also try to remove it and reintsall from the link https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/cpp/windows/latest-supported-vc-redist?view=msvc-170
Unfortunately the C++ Redistributable repair didn't resolve the issue. The errors still persist after closing PDF documents. No idea why this is happening. What should I try next? thanks.
Please try using the application in a new test user profile with full admin rights and see if its working fine there.
My user account on the terminal server doesn't have the issue and I am admin.
Thanks for sharing your observation. It seems to be an issue with the user profile, there isn't much that we can do in this. Please try to repair the affected user profile and see if that helps.
Well, not sure this is the answer as more than 20 profiles are having this same issue. I don't use my profile enough to see the issue so the issue could be with my admin profile as well.
Another item I have noticed...it seems after "signing in" to Adobe Acrobat under the Help drop down that I don't get the error when closing the PDF. By the way...this issue is happening on my admin account as I just reproduced the error. However, since signing in I have not seen the error. With this in mind, how do 20 plus terminal server users sign in to Adobe if the product we have purchased is a perpetual license? My users do not have Adobe accounts to sign in with. I can sign in under my profile but this doesn't help the other users....
Actually, disregard what I just mentioned. The error occurred even signed in. Oh well. Here are the error details.

Did you happen to received the dmp log I uploaded? thanks
Thank you for sharing the logs, we have raised this issue with the engineering team for review, we will share the update as soon as we get any news from them.
Was just checking to see if there was an update for this issue? Thank you.
Do you have 20+ licenses for Actobat 2020? I am not sure it is intended to support multiple users without sign in.
Of course! We have 45 + perpetual licenses.
We have got some update from our engineering team and the issue seems to be due to the injection of Cylance dlls in AcroCEF. Please whitelist AcroCEF in Cylance to ensure that the following dlls are not injected in AcroCEF:
This should resolve the issue.
In order to verify that the DLL injection issue has been fixed, you need to follow these steps:
Let us know how it goes.
Please confirm if the issue got fixed after following the steps shared and whitelisting The AcroCEF in Cylance to ensure that the dlls are not injected in AcroCEF.
Let us know if you are still experiencing the issue .
