Exactly what did you download from where? The only “freeware” is Adobe Acrobat Reader, not Acrobat Pro or Acrobat Standard.

 

To download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader, go to https://get2.adobe.com/reader/, uncheck the options for so-called “optional offers” and click on the Download Acrobat Reader button.

This is what I do but eventually at the moment of using a service (in my case to join several PDF together) I get this:

Always, I can't start my work

Of course Adobe wants you to pay. That isn't a freeware product!

It works like this. Acrobat Reader is completely free. You can use it to view PDF, print, fill in forms, add notes. ALSO Adobe have paid services. Such as create PDF, combine PDF, export to other formats, edit PDF. These are NEVER free from Adobe. Tool buttons like "Edit" in Acrobat Reader take you to a chance to pay. The basic functions (o view PDF, print, fill in forms, add notes...) are still free.

 

Why? Because the free Acrobat Reader is free to get you hooked on PDF, so you will pay for more! This is normal with free apps.

And I assume that whatever you do for a living should be given away for “free” also, correct?

This is such a nasty response. Adobe Acrobat has some free things you can do, but I am having the same problem as the person you responded to -- I am trying to use Adobe Acrobat Reader JUST TO VIEW A PDF and it is not allowing me. It is saying I HAVE TO purchase something. When I click no, it exits out of Acrobat immediately. I can't even use the free functions. I came here to find if there was a solution to this, but instead all I see is you being incredibly nasty to people. Shame on you.

From what i gather ( I am having the same troubles as above) we may have to uninstal our current version of Adobe and reinstal the reader version? I think its once you have paid for it, it updates the software and you can no longer use the free part.... not sure but im going to give it a go!

Hi there

 

Hope you are doing well.

 

The 64-bit application is a unified application for Acrobat and Acrobat Reader. If you have installed Acrobat Reader 64-bit and you purchase an Acrobat subscription, the Acrobat Reader 64-bit application will upgrade to become a fully functional Acrobat 64-bit application.

 

For more information please check the help page: https://adobe.ly/3Wg7hQd

 

Thanks

Amal

This is crazy. I have the same issue. For around 20 years, I have used the free Reader to open and view PDFs. Since my company got me licenses for other Adobe products, I can now no longer open and view PDFs. It wants me to get a 7-day trial. I just want to read a PDF!!! Why is this so challenging?

In my case, the solution was to login to Creative Cloud. For whatever reason I had been logged out and (stupidly) it still woudln't let me use the basic reader logged out,
