After installing Jan update, the Acrobat Reader 64-bit cannot print any document. However, when I de-install and then install 32-bit version. It has no problem. 

 

A lot of people in my group are using 64bit version. Anyone know what happen?

Hi there,

 

Please try to update the application to the recent version 22.1.20085 from the help menu > check for updates and reboot the computer once and see if that works for you.

Hi there,

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble.

 

What happens when you try to print the PDF from Adobe Acrobat 64 bit with new update? Do you get any error messages? If yes please share the screenshot of the same for a better understanding.

 

Is this a behavior with a particular PDF file or with all the PDF? Please try with a different PDF file and check. if the file is stored on a shared network/drive please download it to your computer first and try again.

 

Also try to repair the installation from the help menu (Win Only) and reboot the application and check.

 

You may also try to reset the Acrobat preferences as described here https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-defau...

Hi Amal,

 

we are facing the same issue here.

However the workaround, to uninstall the 64-Bit Version and install 32-Bit Version helps, but not for long - because after a certain amount of time, it updates automatically to the broken 64-Bit Version.

Please let us know, when a fix will be available - because I can't go around all day and reinstall the 32-Bit Version.

 

Best regards,

Felix

We are still having issues with Adobe updating from 32bit to 64bit.  We are IT for Dental offices and their software will not work with Adobe 64.  We have tried to do the Registry fix, disable adobe update services, and disable adobe update in the task scheduler.  It still finds a way to update and sometimes within seconds of installing the 32-bit version.  Can anyone shed any lite on this?

@cvolkers are you running Trend Micro by chance for AV?

 

Seems to be part of the issue we're experiencing.

@cvolkers The current bypass is to use Chrome to print the pdf document. Also, you can turn on the compatibility mode if not too much PC.

Hi Amal,

 

After I have press the print button, the print diaglog box appear. Then, after print the print button again, nothing appear and return to document. The print queue has nothing.

 

It has happened in all pdf document and many of my user. However, I have tried to de-install and then install the 32-bit version. No such problem. My original acrobat reader is 64-bit.

We are sorry to hear that. Would you mind collecting the Adobe CC Logs https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-log-collector.html and procmon logs https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Labs/acromonitor.html and share them with us via document cloud link as described here https://helpx.adobe.com/document-cloud/help/sharing-pdfs.html so that we can isolate the issue for the fix.

We are having the same issue here on all 100 PC's.  Everything prints except adobe reader 64 bit.  No error doesn't even ghet to the printer queue.  I uninstalled 64 bit and put in 32 bit but it updates to 64 bit shortly after.  Are you aware of the problem and are you developing a fix?

Yes. We got the same issue that 32-bit will come back to 64-bit very soon. So, we can only tell user to use Chrome for printing.

 

Don't know when Adobe can fix the problem.

We are also having the same problem. 32bit is fine but the problem is it auto updates the 32bit version to 64bit. Surely this would be a big issue on Adobes radar? Its taken some time to get any official comment on this.

Hey Amal,

 

I've confirmed that on all the workstations I've manually updated as an administrator, the new version corrects the issue between Adobe Acrobat Reader 64bit and Trend Micro WFBS. Printing is working now, thank you.

 

I've always left Acorbat to it's own devices when it comes to automatic updates and generally they seem to happen in the background without user intervention or the need to elevate to an administrator. In order to update manually though, it appears you require admin rights. Do you know when or what triggers the automatic update? Is there a flag that Adobe sets to publish for manual update checks vs automatic? I haven't seen any machines move to v22.1.20085 as of yet.

Hi Chris

 

Hope you are doing well.

 

Adobe Acrobat Reader is set up for automatic updates by default. It does not provide any UI option in the preferences to control this setting.

IT Administrators can control the update settings using the Adobe Customization Wizard or the Windows Registry

 

For more info. please check the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/automatic-updates---acrobat-reader.html

We also switched already to the solution of using Chrome or Edge and are totally happy with it. 2 month of waiting for a fix and weeks of no responses from Adobe was simply unacceptable.

Hello everyone,

 

We got the same problem at work and a coworker find out this simple wokaround until Adobe Fix It.

 

Uncheck the protected mode at start in : Edit > Preferences > Security (Enhanced)

 

You can use a GPO for doing in it.

 

Finnaly, i might be wrong but i think after this workaround, the security against cryptovirus will certainly go down without this features. So be aware of that point and stay alert.

 

Hope it help !
