We have Azure Virtual Desktop infrastructure running virtual machines with Windows 10 Enterprise for Virtual Desktops. We have multiple users accessing each virtual machine.
Some of our users require Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, and some require Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
It appears that once Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is installed, it removes Adobe Acrobat Reader DC from the virtual machine. Is there anyway to have both installed in parallel so that users are able to use either version based on their needs.
If possible I'd prefer to not split my virtual machines into VM's with only Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and VM's with only Acrobat Pro DC.
Thanks in adance.

Installing Acrobat does not remove Reader. It is possible, though, that it conflicts with it, for example when it comes to the default application used to handle PDF files.
I've also found that it conflicts with opening PDF's in internet explorer. If you have any programs that open them in internet explorer a non DC user will not be able to because they don't have a sign in for DC which is prioritized over Reader for the PDF Reader in IE
We found that uninstalling / reinstalling has fixed the issue and both are now behaving 🙂
I installed Acrobat a couple days ago and now I am unable to install Reader for the first time. From your experience, would you guess that if I uninstall Acrobat, then install Reader, then re-install Acrobat I might get past this issue?
