Can anyone please advise a fix for this issue? When I open a pdf file with adobe reader, it opens for about 10 seconds and then closes.
I have googled fixes and the one that seems to fix most is to locate the Eula files and install a certificate but this doesn't work in my case.
I have done a full removal and uses the adobe clean-up tool to ensure all traces are gone, then done a new download and reinstall, but this also has not fixed the problem.
Sorry for the delay in response.
After clean uninstall and reinstalling are you getting any error? Let us know the current version of Reader and operating version.
You may try to launching Reader with admin rights. Right click on Reader icon and Choose "Run as Administrator."
In the meantime, you may try enabling Hidden user account assuming you are using windows https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/555910/how-to-enable-the-built-in-administrator-account-in-... and try to reproduce the issue.
Let us know if that helps.
Thanks for the suggestions.
The problem appears to have corrected itself without any further changes.
After the clean install, the problem was still there, so I switched my default pdf programme to the windows standard one. After a few days I tried again and it was working properly.
I am assuming some windows or adobe updates sported themselves out as I have no other answer to it.
Thank you for your response.
I am happy that your issue is fixed and you are able to use Reader.
Happy to help
