hi, we have the latest version of adone reader DC and Outlook 2016 on our desktops
Since upgrading to the latest update, the attach to email button asks to choose an outlook profile when clicked and doesn't work when one is chosen.
Ive found that previous versions of reader had this and it had been fixed
I tried the adobe reader registry which didn't work and tried repairing office 2016
thsnks for any advice
Could you please try repairing Reader and see if that helps?
Launch Reader>click Help>Repair Installation
Restart Reader after repair and try sending the file.
Please confirm the dot version of Reader installed on the machine.
To do that, click About Adobe Acrobat Reader under Help menu
Thanks for your help.
i have done this, I have also tried uninstall / reinstall adobe.
i have also tried repairing and reinstalling office 2016
The version we have this problem with is 15.23.20070
we have some machines which don't have this problem and they are version 15.20.20042
Updating adobe reader on these machines gives them the problem
Is there a way to redownload the older version to fix this for our users?
Could you please try launching Reader as an administrator and see if it works?
Locate Reader's shortcut on the desktop>right click>Run as administrator
This didn't work sorry
is there a way to download the older version?
Hi is there a way I can download the previous version from somewhere?
I am sorry for replying so late.
You may try removing Reader's current installation (version 15.23.20070) using Cleaner tool which can be downloaded from here: Download Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool - Adobe Labs
Restart the computer.
Download and install Reader DC from here: Adobe - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Distribution ( select the operating system, language, and version from the drop-down options).
If that doesn't work, please follow below mentioned steps to download the previous version:
1- Download the base version (2015.007.20033) from the following link: DC Continuous Track (base release) — Acrobat and Adobe Reader Release Notes ,
2- Then download patch 15.020.20039 from the following link:
3- You may also try downloading patch 15.20.20042 from the following link:
Let me know if there is an issue following the steps mentioned above.
Apologies for the inconvenience caused.
"Attach to Email" should work on the latest Reader build. We are not able to reproduce this issue at our end.
We need your help to get the insight of the issue.
Could you please provide the following info-
1. Version of Outlook 2016 with bit info(32 or 64-bit)
-for checking this info: Launch Outlook, Goto File->Office Account->About Outlook
2. Open a PDF, try to attach it to Email and check if either the process “32BitMAPIBroker.exe” or “64BitMAPIBroker.exe” gets launched.
-You can see Task Monitor for the process after using "Attach to Email" option. A new process “32BitMAPIBroker.exe” has been added to the latest Reader so the only difference between Reader:15.20.20042 and 15.23.20070 is “32BitMAPIBroker.exe” with respect to Attach to Email functioning.
I can see in the video that Outlook is prompted for selecting a profile.
Could you please check which option has been selected for using profiles of Outlook on your system.
Kindly follow the steps to check it-
-Open "Control Panel"
-Search for word "mail" in search box on the upper right corner.
-Click on "Mail (Microsoft Outlook 2016) (32-bit)"
-Click on "Show Profiles" and check if the second radio button "Always use this profile" is selected and the correct Outlook profile is being used from the dropdown.
Kindly let us know if you face any issues.
Thanks for replying this is how we have it set
We are looking into the issue and will get back to you soon.
Meanwhile could you please confirm if this issue does not occur with the previous version on this system. It means if you downgrade the Reader to version 15.20.20042 then issue disappears on this system.
It didn't occur with the previous version
Thanks for looking into it
i have checked and we do have the latest version of office we have the 64 bit version
Apologies for the late response!
Could you please let us know if the issue is still reproducible with the latest "Adobe Reader DC" and "Outlook 2016" .
If the issue still persists, I would suggest the following steps-
1. Update both the software "Adobe Reader DC" and "Outlook 2016" to the latest version available.
2. Enable "Use Cached Exchange Mode" in Outlook if not enabled already.To do this follow the steps:
-Open Outlook and Goto File->Account Settings->Account Settings
-Select the email account you are using and click on "Change" and tick the check-box "Use Cached Exchange Mode".
-Click Next and then click Finish
-Restart the Outlook and try to attach any pdf.
Kindly let us know if it helps.
Hi, I have spent quite a lot of time trying to work this one out and I think I have.
If I uninstall this Microsoft update the problem goes away. - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3141511/february-7-2017-update-for-outlook-2016-kb3141511
We installed this update on the same day as updating the adobe reader.
I found that it did not matter which version it was, going back to an older version still had the problem, also going to the latest version released this week we still had the problem.
We do need this Microsoft update so please let me know what we can do?
I'm not sure if this will help; but, I had a similar problem with MS Office 2007. The fix was to completely uninstall Office 2007, and then delete the MS office registry entries (somehow corrupt or missing), run a AVG Tune-up registry cleaner. Then reinstall Office and Reader. This is the only thing that worked. Just repairing didn't work; because, the registry entries did not delete and refresh.
The Outlook version 16.0.4498.1000, you mentioned earlier was older.
Kindly update Outlook as well as Adobe Reader DC to the latest version available and let us know the versions of both the software after update. If issue still persist with the newest ones, we may need more info or send you a meeting request to debug the issue on your system as it is not reproducible here at our end.
Both are updated and we still have the problem.
if I uninstall the Microsoft KB it it ok
Let me know what the next steps are
Kindly share the following info-
1. Snapshot of Email preference in Adobe Reader Adobe
-Open Reader and Goto Edit->Preferences->Email Accounts
2. Snapshot of version the the Outlook 2016 after update
-Open Outlook and Goto File->Office Account->About Outlook
It seems Reader is trying to select a garbage profile in the video you had shared. Please let us know what happens when you choose the correct profile.
Hi, there are no updates for office in windows update.
its a volume lisense version of office 2016 standard
uninstalling the microsft kb fixes it, so it must be related to that?
selecting the correct profile in reader doesnt help
Thank you so much for the update!
Could you please try the workflow after disabling the protected mode in Reader.
Please follow the steps-
-Open Adobe Reader
-Open Goto Edit->Preferences->Security (Enhanced) and un-tick the checkbox "Enable Enhanced Security"
-Click OK to save the changes and Restart Adobe Reader
Now try to attach any PDF and kindly share the result.
no sorry it is still the same
the only thing I have found so far is uninstalling the Microsoft kb
Hi, I've used WSUS and Microsoft, there are no more Microsoft updates to install for our version of office 2016
Our version is 16.0.4498.1000
It seems to be related to the Microsoft update mentioned earlier.
Please let me know what to do.
