I have a Win 10 Pro pc, with Adobe Acrobat 2017 Standard.  Initially, there was a problem previewing Excel and Word attachments in Outlook.  This was resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling Office 2016.  After that, I noticed that I was no longer able to save Office documents as pdf files.  To fix this, I had to uninstall and reinstall Adobe Acrobat 2017.  Since then, I have been unable to directly open PDF files that are located in shared drive folders from our server.  This is the error:  "There was an error opening this document.  This file cannot be found."  If I do a file open from within Adobe, and search by using a UNC path, the pdf files open with no problem.  Adobe Acrobat is set as the default program for opening pdf files on the pc.  I have tried running as administrator, and running under compatibiloity mode,  with no difference.
