Currently we have Acrobat Reader DC installed on a Windows 2012 R2 terminal server, and due to a recent update, are encountering an issue with the Adobe Update Service continually failing - this causes a prompt to appear for any logged in user. It appears that in recent updates to Adobe Reader that the "Updater" tab within preferences has been removed.
Attempting to disable the Update Service in Local Services does not work, and setting this to Manual or Disabled does not stick for more than 30 minutes. There is also a scheduled task for the Adobe Reader Update Service in Task Scheduler that attempts to run the Update Service everytime a user logs on - disabling this only lasts for 30 mins before it resets to enabled with its default settings.
Is there a way to disable Auto-Updates for Acrobat Reader on a terminal server?
Is there any working solution to stop updating Adobe Acrobat Reader DC???
I download the latest 32bit version and then I made all the steps to prevent auto update. But it still does. It updates to 64 bit version. I got a problem wiht that, because then my e-sing tablet does not work!
