Hi, I need 32bit Adobe Reader on my Win 10 64bit PC as a 3rd party piece of software won't print with the 64bit version, I've disabled the task scheduler and adobe update service within services on the PC but it keeps updating in the background and whenever I switch off or reboot the PC, Adobe has updated to the 64bit version. Is there somewhere in the registry that I need to disable Adobe?

 

Regards

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble.

 

Adobe Acrobat Reader DC is set up for continuous updating. You can modify the settings via the Adobe Customization Wizard DC or the Windows Registry as described in the correct answer marked in the similar discussion https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader-discussions/disable-automatic-updates-in-adobe-reader-...

 

Hope this information will help

You can use the following registry value to stop the update to 64 bit Reader:

 

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\DC\FeatureLockDown]
"bUpdateToSingleApp"=dword:00000000
