I hope this message finds you well. I recently updated my Adobe Acrobat to the latest version (23.008.20458), and I've been experiencing some issues that I hadn't encountered before. I wanted to reach out to the community to see if anyone else is facing similar challenges.

Details:

  • Version: Adobe Acrobat 23.008.20458
  • Issue: i have an App in vb6 that uses Adobe Acrobat Pro to add watermarks and print pdf files
    Automation Error : The remote procedure call failed (related do my call of Adobe in the code )
    The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable
  • Operating System: Windows 11.

I've tried restating the printer spool,Set Acrobat as my Default app,unchecked the protection mode on adobe,debug , but the issue persists. If anyone has insights, solutions, or experiences related to this update, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Best regards,

You would at least share the code with us, where yo make your calls to Acrobat. Your message reads like "my car does not start, what can I do?"

 

Prior to this update, your code did work?
