Check "lock document after sign" (same issue if you don't doh)
Pop up askes were to save the file
Save the file
Then this error occurs and my sign NRKNLA dissapers

Check if that helps.

Its not working, please fix ASAP
Please check if the steps suggested by Ravikant work for you.
Let us know how it goes.
This solution doesn't work. My certificate is already SHA256. Yet it has stopped working on version 2022.001.20142
2. CryptoID SDK
3. Certificate is enrolled inside CryptoID
4. Adobe and Office
2. DIGITALLY SIGN ADOBE ACROBAT READER DC

Then click Signatures, Select More on the Identities & Trusted Certificates.
Unfold Digital IDs, select PKCS#11 Modules and Tokens:
Ó Longmai Technology Co.,Ltd, 2022 Page 5 of 18
Then click Attach Module:
If your Windows Operation System is 64bit, and your Adobe is 64bit as well, then
you need load library from C:\Windows\System32\CryptoIDA_pkcs11.dll
Ó Longmai Technology Co.,Ltd, 2022 Page 6 of 18
If your Adobe is 32bit, then you need load library from C:\Windows\SysWOW64\
Then you can see CryptoID Module is loaded. (here my Adobe is 64bit, thus I load library from
C:\Windows\System32\CryptoIDA_pkcs11.dll , if your Adobe is 32bit, you should load from another path,
check the content above)

Then unfold the PKCS#11 Modules and Tokens, click Longmai PKCS11# Library,
then click Login button. Input your token password and then click OK.
Now you can use Adobe sign PDF.
Thank you. This works.
Hi, I was getting the below error when trying to sign
"Windows Cryptographic Service Provider reported an error:
ASN1 bad tag value met.
Error Code: 2148086027"
And the solution you gave works! Thank You!
This solution worked for me as well.
Thanks a lot Ravikat ji for perfect solution
Thank you . It works
No, this is not working or is a solution. Also we cannot disable protected mode and put us at risk.
This issue is also in the later versions:
22.002.20191 and 22.001.20169
@MeenakshiNegi please advice how Adobe handle this issue
@MeenakshiNegi this issue appers when you have proteced mode enabled. When i disable protected mode this issue apperas. Could you please look into why this happened after version 2022.001.20117. Thanks
Sorry for the delay in response.
As the issue still occurs with the latest version, we would require some details.
Would you mind sharing the screen recording with us with the complete workflow?
Also, let us know if you have created the digital sign in Acrobat.
Did you check if the issue occurs on the new digital signature created in Acrobat?
@MeenakshiNegi Here is a screen recording to show the workflow. And you can se we have protected mode enabled. Before version 2022.001.20142 this was no issue. To get this to work we must disable protected mode.
This appers in both Acrobat DC and Acrobat Reader DC.
