Hi,

We have Acrobat XI 11.0.03 installed on 3 terminal servers here.

One of them suddently stopped working, the process PDapp.exe crash with the following message everytime that acrobat is started.

____________________________________________

Application Error 1000 :

Faulting application name: PDApp.exe, version: 9.0.0.263, time stamp: 0x56e11428

Faulting module name: KERNELBASE.dll, version: 6.1.7601.23418, time stamp: 0x5708a7e4

Exception code: 0x40010006

Fault offset: 0x0000c54f

Faulting process id: 0x1958

Faulting application start time: 0x01d1d06b8e6fd964

So Ive installed the update to Acrobat XI 11.0.16 with no success.

Installed the Application manager 10.0.  Performed multiple reboot and a repair with no luck.

Also disabled the AV (we use bitdefender)

What are my next steps ?

Thanks

PDApp.exe crashes because of SEHOP (exploit protection), which is enabled by default on server OS. Put PDApp.exe on the exception list:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\PDApp.exe -->  DisableExceptionChainValidation (Dword) = 1

Does not require reboot.
