Please update the thread with the requested information if you still experience the same issue.
I have the same problem. Using Mac OS 10.15.3. Installed Acrobat DC from creative cloud today. Runs and closes instantly. Can't give you an error report because I do not know where to find one.
We are sorry for the trouble. Would you mind sharing the version of the Adobe Acrobat DC installed on your system?
To check the version of the application please use the help article https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/identify-product-version.html
Make sure you have the latest version 19.21.20061. Go to Help > Check for Updates. For more information please use the help link https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotesDC/index.html
Let us know how it goes
I cannot tell you what version I have because Acrobat closes instantly after opening, so there is no time to look for the version. But I got it from your Creative Cloud website 1 day ago, so I must assume that it is the latest one. I also uninstalled and reinstalled it, restarted the computer, thus far, no luck. Preview works fine, though, so I can view PDF files.
We are sorry to hear that the issue still persists.
Please try the following steps and see if that helps:
If it still doesn't work please create a new test user profile with full admin rights or enable the root account (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204012) and try using the application there and check.
if it still crashes, please collect the logs as described here (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/acrobat/kb/collect-logs-crash-freeze.html) upload the logs to the document cloud (https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/home/) generate the link and share the link with us.
Trying to do these steps for the same reasons (repeatedly crashing on OSX)
The AcroCleaner link for OSX does not work, goes to a 404
This is ridiculous for a paid app from a company I thought I could rely upon like Adobe
Sorry for the trouble.
The AcroCleaner link is broken and we have informed the team to get it fixed.
As the application crashing, please try the troubleshooting steps as suggested here: https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/troubleshoot-system-errors-freezes-mac.html and check if that helps.

Same Issue - Adobe when are you going to respond with a fix?
We are sorry for the trouble. Would youmind sharing the version of the Adobe Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Adobe Acrobat DC.
A New version 20.12.20041 is now available for Adoe Acrobat/Reader DC please try to update the application to the new version from the help menu > check forupdates and see if that makes any difference.
On the latest release and still not working
I'm having the same issue. Adobe Acrobat stopped working when I upgraded to MacOS 10.15.6. I get a "Sorry, something went wrong" message on launch. I've uninstalled and reinstalled and restarted machine and the same thing keeps happening. If I try to use Acrobat online I get "Access denied" message. This is extremely frustrating. Please fix.
We've all updated and Acrobat is still isn't working. What are you going to do for us? Please respond. I have pdfs that are not accessible to my disabled students and I cannot edit them because I cannot open anything in Acrobat. (Reader works fine for viewing but I cannot make my pdfs accessible.)
Does anyone here know of an alternative to Acrobat for editing pdfs? I've had it with Adobe not responding. This is ridiculous.
Can we get access to an older version that is stable and is know to work? This is crazy how much $$$$ organizations are giving Adobe and producing a faulty product.
I am sorry for the delay in response.
We need some more information to investigate the issue in detail
1. What is the version of the Adobe Acrobat/Reader DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Adobe Acrobat.
2. Are you on a Mac or Windows machine and what is the version of the OS?
3. Do you have any security software installed that might be causing the issue? If yes, what is the security software you are using?
Please collect the machine logs as described here https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-log-collector.html and upload the logs on the Document Cloud https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/home/ , generate the link and share it with us for testing.
You may also try the workaround as described in the similar discussion https://community.adobe.com/t5/enterprise-teams/started-having-federated-mac-users-not-be-able-to-ac... and see if that works for you.
Never mind, Amal. I fixed the problem by uninstalling Adobe Creative Cloud, restarting, and reinstalling Creative cloud, and then downloading and reinstalling Acrobat (again).
This was a long time to spend just trying to get the attention of someone from Adobe. As noted by colby_w222166028, this is not a free product.
Can't believe this is still an issue. I'm unable to use DC Pro, but they keep charging me every month! F that.
You have to uninstall Adobe Creative Cloud, reinstall it, and then use the new version of CC to reinstall Acrobat. You should restart after uninstalling CC and check to make sure that Acrobat is no longer on your machine. I had to uninstall Acrobat three times.
