Internal Error Message when opening View in Menu Bar

New Here ,
Sep 06, 2022 Sep 06, 2022

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

I have a user that has Adobe Acrobat DC installed on their system (Win 10, build 21H2). They are having an odd issue where anytime they go to the View tab in the Menu Bar, Acrobat will pop up a dialog box "An internall error has occurred" about 5 or 6 times. This happens with either any PDF loaded, or nothing loaded except the application.

 

I have already performed a full uninstall/reinstall of the software earlier, which did not resolve the issue. I also had them sign out and sign back into the application, with no change. No other users are reporting this issue at this time.  I also disabled protected mode to see if this fixed the issue and it did not. 

 

Any insight on how to resolve or where to look?

Hi @Rick Kulacki Jr.

 

Hope you are doing well. Sorry for the trouble.

 

You may also try to reset the Acrobat preferences as described here https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-defau...

 

Please go to Edit > Preferences > Page Display > Under rendering, Uncheck 'Use Page Cache' > Click OK and reboot the application.

 

Let us know how it goes.

Just tried that with the user, and no change. File, Edit, Window, E-Sign, and Help all work in the Menu Bar. View will cause 6 "An Internal Error has occurred" pop ups to show, then the sub menu appears, but is not active.

Hi @Rick Kulacki Jr.,

 

Would you mind sharing the screenshot of the version of Acrobat you are using [also if it is 32-bit or 64-bit]

 

Also, try launching Distiller once without launching Acrobat, and let me know if that works fine or not. 

 

Another information I would like to know is: Is the user working on a virtual machine or stand alone desktop.

 

-Souvik.

Here's the version of Acrobat they are using. Distiller seemed to load with no error, also this is a laptop, Dell Latitude 5420. 

Another item to note is that when trying to go to the profile icon in the menu, nothing happens when we click on it, the menu options appears, but it acts like nothing is done when clicked.

Was this ever resolved?  I am getting exactly the same "internal error'.  I have tried reinstalling acrobat pro dc as well as steps above.  I do not to have open a file -- just  open the application.  And then select, say, veiw menu.   5 cycles of "internal error" "ok" and I have control again. But the view menul is frozen/inactive on top of all else until I close acrobat.

Hi Amal,

 

I am having the same issues described by Rick Kulacki Jr. and Egbert26084717gvpf, with the exception that I am not having the same issue with the profile icon that Rick mentioned. The "internal error" shows up when I click on File, Edit, or View in the menu bar, but E-Sign, Window, and Help are fine. Additionally, when I navigate to the "Tools" tab of Acrobat Pro DC, the icons for each tool are missing, though I can still click on them.

 

I collected CC and Procmon logs for the error when clicking the View menu. I tried to upload everything to the Document Cloud as you suggested, but only the .pml and .csv files would upload as the others (.zxp, .dmp, etc) are not supported. Would you advise on how to share the rest of the files with you? I will send you a message with the share link for those I was able to upload.

Hello Amal,

Is it possible to install some older version of Acrobat DC?  This just started happening with the August update I suspect..

Thanks,
Bert

I am having the exact issue as the original poster re: Internal Error popups on the View menu only. Running Acrobat Pro 64-bit on Windows. Has it been fixed yet, or will it be fixed soon?

Actually, it's gotten vastly worse now. Icons are missing inside the program, zoom-level menus fail to appear, the account button doesn't work, and editing is very broken in numerous ways. Whatever broke the View menu goes way deeper. I'll have to search for other issues, and probably will have to roll this back.

Thanks, glad it's being worked on. I ended up trying a full uninstall and reinstall, and it seems to be working okay at the moment. If it comes back I'll try to get some logs.

Need a solution for this. Acrobat has not worked properly without INTERAL ERROR all week and is freezing and crashing everything. I have uninstalled reinstalled I lost count how many times. I have contacted Adobe and got my IT department involved and it is still not fixed. Any updates on this? It looks like a LOT of users are having this same issue.internal error.png

I am having the same issue. Started recently. Acrobat runs another instance of the program every time I try to open a pdf. It is also running acroCEF multiple times.Even after I delete all processes Acrobat will still send 'an internal error occurred' to my screen every few minutes. Checked permissions, did Repair Installation but nothing helps.

Hello,

 

am facing the same problem. "Internal Error" upon trying to change the viewing options via the submenue.

 

Did also try the solution options provided here in the thread. Did not help.

 

Question: Is posting here similar to opening a ticket? In other words, are Acrobat employees reading the postings here and take action on it?

 

LG, Juergen

... to add on top, after having done a more detailed analysis:

- De-Installed Acrobat DC Pro (64bit !)

- Installed Adober Acrobat Reader (64bit). Problem is gone.

- De-Installed Acrobat Reader

- Installed Acrobat DC Pro (32bit) from Offline-Install Archive -> Problem is gone.

 

Not sure, what I will be missing by using the 32bit-Version instead of the 64bit version.
