Jim,

Adobe official response is that Acrobat 8 has not been tested on Win 10 and is not compatible with Win 10.

However, I and several other members have it working in Win 10. Now the fact that we have it working does not mean we

have all the functions working. One is print to pdf. It does not work inn Win 10. I have a workaround which gives me the

ability to print to pdf, but that is all it does. If that is not good enough you need to upgrade.

Here is my post of how I got it working.

Adobe Acrobat Pro 8.0 working in Windows 10         

Re: Will an older version of acrobat 8 Professional install, and function on a newer computer using ...    

I hope that helps.

Things have moved on, but having just replaced my laptop and re-installed Acrobat Standard 8.1 (that I got with a Fujitsu scanner, so have a proper serial #), it seems Adobe have cut off every avenue for activating and therefore running legal software. I realilse that they don't support this any longer, and I'm not asking for that, just to be able to run what I have purchased. Is there a way to get the install activated or to stop the activation being required?

Unfortunately, no. Acrobat 8 is truly dead and buried.

It's funny, it's doing a very good impression of working every time I run it, and AFAIK, there's nothing in the licence to say I can't continue to run what I've purchased indefinitely (and yes, I did "follow the activation, installation, and/or license management process described in the software and documentation", but Adobe's failure to have it avctually work is not an exclusion, or 'get out' clause).

Well, it might work now, but it can break at any moment and then you won't be able to use it again, nor can you install it on a new machine, as it can't be activated.

 

And I totally agree with you that this is not OK. I don't support it, just telling it like it is.

Hi,

I just completed a bit of a chat exercise with an adobe chat agent.

The agent was adamant that acrobat pro 8.1 is no longer supported and cannot be activated because the server that allowed activation is decommisioned.

I too had 8.1 running until I needed to reinstall everything on my laptop. Currently this version is in its 30 day trial. Perhaps when the time expires, the lack of support will allow the program to continue working.

I provide this to confirm that there is no hope for any activations of valid versions of 8.1.

The chat agent recommended finding a third party with a version on CD that can be loaded without activation.
