Overnight, an issue with Adobe XI Standard closes after opening a document. Ran repair and that did not help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Note: Have made changes to the post per the request from davidf37405229
What's the exact version number? What's your OS version?
windows 10. hold on for the version
trying that now. can i just jump to and install 11.0.23?
Yes, that should work.
And it did work. Thanks!
This update link is no longer valid, but to help others who may still be running into this, here is an answer from another thread that worked. While the program is open, quickly click "Help" and then "Check for Updates". I did this on my Acrobat X Pro, and it still closed that first time, but I had updates, which were installed. After I restarted, it worked perfectly! Thanks to dlorts for the tip! PDF file shuts down automatically after 10 sec - Adobe Support Community - 10274910
That link is still valid but you can no longer open it in most browsers, as they blocked FTP access, annoyingly. You need to use a dedicated FTP application for it.
THIS RIGHT HERE! Thanks Andrea. I was pulling what little hair I still have out and your tip fixed it. Acrobat and hair pulling. Funny how Acrobat X was working fine on Windows 11 and then suddenly just quit, and then an old update fixed it. But fix it, it did! Thanks to all in this thread who'd made it happen.
