I was having the exact same issue, which was making things a pain at work for the last couple weeks! This easy fix took care of the issue right away, i appreciate the good advice! Thanks and have a good one!
I am having a similar issue, AcroRD32.exe Bad Image every time I try to open a PDF file, with the difference from user alann67414266's issue being MSVCP120.dll (vs. MSVCP110) and error status 0xc000012f . This occurred right after a Windows 10 update (regular update, not a version update from Windows 8, etc.), and is also making it to where I cannot open photographs. The compatibility tab (showing grayed out for Windows 8 next to it) was already unchecked.
With the error I get a pop up Adobe Reader Protected Mode box with 3 options, none of which correct the issue and keep renewing the error/pop up box.
I accidentally hit the ok button in the error message a couple of times and a fatal error message opened stating Acrobat could not load it's core DLL.
Could you please check if an update is pending for Reader by going to Help > Check for Updates.
If installing an update doesn't work, try enabling compatibility mode for Reader and see if that resolves the issue: under compatibility tab>check the box next to Run this program in compatibility mode for and select Windows 7/ Windows 8 from the drop-down > click Apply > OK and relaunch Reader.
If that doesn't work, try downloading Visual c++ using the link given below:
Also, let us know the dot version of Reader installed on the machine. You may refer to the steps given in this link on how to: Identify the product and its version for Acrobat and Reader DC
I am having the same problem as Jim above, having completed a windows update. And none of the suggestions you made Shivam have rectified the problem. To make matters worse I can't even find where Adobe is in the start menu or on a serach to try uninstalling and reinstalling. Please help as this is causing problems for work.
Please try following troubleshooting steps:
1- Reboot the machine if you haven't already and see if that works.
2- If it doesn't, locate Reader by pressing Windows icon on the keyboard > type reader and double-click Acrobat Reader in the search result.
If Reader ain't there in the search results, right-click Start menu > click apps & features(for Windows 10).
Click Acrobat Reader DC > Modify > click Repair installation. Reboot the machine after repair and try opening pdf again.
Let us know how it goes.
I had the same problem for days. I tried your method. It works!
