My windows 7 PC fried during a storm related power surge.  Bummer. How do I make Acrobat X Pro compatible with Windows 11?

What a strange question. Why would such old software work in Windows 10? Oh wait, you need someone to fix it, because Microsoft broke it - and so they did, and now you can get Acrobat DC.

Strange as it may seem.  I could do anything I wanted with Windows 7 and Acrobat X pro.  They were all set up to my liking and worked perfectly for my wants and needs.  I would have been happy taking them both to my grave but Mother Nature had another plan.  Now I have to put up with all the new shtuff that is completely irrelevant to my world and learn another system that some Gen Xer thinks is better but has too much junk surrounding the core need.  All I want is to use Acrobat X Pro as I used to. Thanks for your reply.

As if Bill and Paul don't have enough money, they need to stick their hand in my pocket once again to turn it out and get more of my money.  Life is good off the grid.

While Acrobat X is not officially compatible with Windows 11, it could very likely still work on it.

To increase the chances of it working properly make sure you have all updates installed (up to 10.1.16) and run it in Compatibility Mode with an earlier OS, like Windows 7.

Updates are available here:
ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/acrobat/win/10.x/
You must use a dedicated FTP client to open the link, it won't work in most browsers.
