Converting Action Wizards to newer version of Acrobat Pro

Hello, 

I am working with old action wizards that work on the 32-bit version of Adobe Acrobat Pro but not on the 64-bit. Is there an easy way to convert these action wizards to the 64-bit? 

 

Unfortunately, I can not add the actual action wizards as this format is not allowed. I added the code that is in the actionwizard when I open it in Notepad and saved to .txt.   

Hope to here soon! 

Bart

Which version of Acrobat did you use to create these Actions?
Normally you can import Actions from older versions of Acrobat via the Action Wizard.

We used Adobe X back in 2014 to make the action wizards

If we want to import it this note pops up: 

Unable to import the action: Wizard 1

No, the formats are too different for a conversion, and some things which were possible in the old version are not possible in the current one (and vice versa). You need to re-create them from scratch.

Open the file in a plain-text editor and you'll see the steps in it. Each section that starts with "HandlerName" is a separate command, and the lines after it are the details of that command. The final two sections are which files it runs on (Input) and how they are saved (Output).

In the first file you shared there are two Crop Pages commands, for example.
