Just reformatted mioy computer and upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate, now I cannot open PDF's - the reader closes immediately - doesn't open the PDF at all. I can't even open Reader XI by itself. I tried uninstalling and rolling back to Reader 10... same result. Uninstalled that and installed verion 9.0. Same result. I have not installed XI again, but still cannot open PDF's. I bought and intalled Office 2013 when I restaged. Nothing else is on my computer yet except Avast antivirus and firewall, skype, IE 10, and google chrome. Any ideas??

You can try using Windows Explorer to navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader, then double-click on Eula.exe and accept the license agreement

I did open another thread elsewhere yesterday... but now I can't seem to find my thread that I started!
I got reader xi.. windows 7.. I tried all the solutions you all suggested.. the eula method too..
I try and open up a pdf from windows live mail or a browser and it opens and closes by itself immediately. Please help. Thanks.
Did you also try disabling Protected Mode?
P.S. this is the only thread that you started under this user ID.
yes I already tried disabling protected mode yesterday.. didn't fix it.
Thanks for your help.
Opebed Eula, accepted license, same issue..
This advice is outdated and no longer works. What is the updated solution?
Well, Reader XI itself is outdated too, obsolete for 7 years now. If you are having problems with it, get up to date! And if you're not having problems with Reader XI, please post a new question.
I'm having the same problem...I open a pdf and it closes 2 seconds later. I have reinstalled 2x and I cant hit repair install because it closes too fast.
