Hi Im using the latest version of acrobat reader DC and Im working with Windows 10. Trying to view a tax document online and it gives me the above error. I have tried "fixing" the issues but it doesnt help.
Try to disable Protected Mode.
Open Reader -> Edit > Preferences, choose "Security Enhanced" category and un-check "Enable Protected Mode at startup".
Check if it fixes the issue.
Thanks that eliminated the error but it still does not view the document. Im getting the following:
To view the full contents of this document, you need a later version of the PDF viewer. You can upgrade to the latest version of Adobe Reader from www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html For further support, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrreader.html
I tried doing the updates and I also tried repairing but nothing has helped.
Hi louiseb18346232 ,
If it does not work, try uninstalling Acrobat Reader using cleaner tool Download Adobe Reader and Acrobat Cleaner Tool - Adobe Labs , restart your system.
Then try re-installing it from this link: Adobe - Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Distribution
If the this error comes up "There is a problem with Adobe/Reader. If it is running, please exit and try again. (507:507)",
Then it means there is another Adobe Reader is running on the backgrond.
You need to restart the computer and try again.
Hi, I had the same error and your advice works.
