    To download the patch manually, more information about this release is here: Release Notes | Adobe Acrobat, Reader

    Run this cleaner tool to remove the existing installer and application’s file traces:

Let us know if that helps.

I have a brand new Dell computer with the Windows 11 operating system and Adobe is very much up to date.  I'm not getting the error message when trying to open a PDF.

I'm getting the error message after opening the Quickbooks program.

This worked for me!

From Fiat Lux – ASIA - To resolve the issue, search at the bottom of your Windows 11 screen for "run." Then ope the "Run App" that came up under your search and typed "optionalfeatures" into the Run App. A "Windows Features" window then open and scroll down to "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" and check the box next to it. I then pressed "OK". You should be able to start creating PDF Invoices again. 

 

I had to restart my computer to get it to work. But it worked for me! Thanks Fiat Lux Asia
