Acrobat - White box after install

Community Beginner ,

I originall was having an issue where many of the buttons for tools and navigation were invisible. I was able to use Acrobat without issue yesterday but starting today the buttons were there but the icons never loaded. I was able to hover over the icons and see a box surround where the button should be and if I hovered there the tooltip would appear explaining what the button did. Clicking the space also worked so this looked to be a purely visual bug. 

I ran a repair. No change

Rolled back to the classic UI and many of the icons were still missing but now when I try to click on anything I saw a warning saying  "an internal error occurred".

For example if I selected 'File' at the top left I would get that error and after selecting Ok the box reappeared. If I selected Ok ~10 times the error box eventually stopped appearing and the File menu would drop down but I was unable to interact with it without it causing the error to reappear.

 

I uninstalled Acrobat, restarted, reinstalled from the Download link on Adobe.com

 

This installed Acrobat and CC

after the re-install Acrobat opens to this page which is mostly a white box

I uninstalled Acrobat and CC then ran the creative cloud cleanup tool then restarted

I then downloaded the standalone Pro copy for acrobat since I don't want or need CC

I am getting the same issue with this install as well

 

After opening the app and letting it sit for 5ish mins I got a prompt to sign into my Adobe profile which I was able to do without issue. This prompt appeared in a separate box like normal and there were no visual bugs on the popup.

 

I tried opening a .pdf instead of the app itself to see if maybe opening a file would work but I see this error saying "There was an error opening this document. An internal error occurred."

Hi Zac38169401nqgk,

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

Please try the below suggestion and let us know if that helps.

Ensure that Acrobat is not running. Try to delete Acrobat’s app data folders mentioned:

  • “C:\Users\<USER NAME>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Acrobat\DC”
  • ‘C:\Users\<USER NAME>\AppData\Local\Adobe\Acrobat\DC”

Then, check if you can use the application.

Let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks,

Hello.

 

I just had the same issue this morning after installing version 24.002.20857 yesterday afternoon.

 

Please be advised that the correct procedure is to do ALL the steps outlined, not just the deltion of the DC information whcih is currently marked as the solution. I tried this and it did not work.

 

So, the correct "fix" for this bug / error is:

  1. Remove the application (and adobe cloud) using windows | settings | apps
  2. Run the cleaner tool (https://adobe.ly/4ewwrka).
  3. Reboot the machine
  4. Install Adob

I opened Acrobat via the "Notification Manager" app and was able to see a window that looks normal in the foreground. I don't think this will really add any additional context but thought I would share the screen recording.

As previously mentioned there were no issues Jun 19 or prior. When attempting to use Acrobat on Jun 20 I started having the issues mentioned in the original post. 

 

I followed the steps you mentioned and verified Acrobat was removed by the cleaner prior to the restart. 

After completing the install I am seeing the same issue. 😞

 

Windows reports the version of Acrobat as 24.002.20857

 

I also have attached the log from running the cleaner in case that helps.

I submitted my diagnostic logs using ID a6ded45f-7fa5-472e-8806-5088bcee291b
