here's my error message I can't run my business without pdf or excel! help
We apologize for the inconvenience caused, as per the description above, you are not able to open PDF files or Excel file in Adobe Reader, Is that correct?
Adobe Reader cannot open an Excel file, as it can only open a PDF file. Only Adobe Acrobat Standard or Pro can open an Excel file.
If you are not able to open a PDF file with Adobe Reader, please check for any pending updates of Adobe Reader from Help>Check for updates. Reboot the machine.
Repair the installation files of Adobe Reader from Help>Repair installation(only for Windows). Reboot the machine and try opening the PDF file.

Since update KB5005565 pc's where Adobe Acrobat Reader and Office are installed are causing issues:
When trying to open Excel, instances of Adobe Acrobat Readerr are appearing in task manager, but not opening
Nor does Adobe Acrobat Reader open.
We have, in our company, this issue on more than 100pc's, the only ones not affected are the Windows 11 test-pc's.
We tried to force an update to version 21.007.20091 but that does not solve the issue.
Basicly the only way people are able again to use office is to completely desinstall Adobe Acrobat Reader...
Wich is not an option
