In Windows 7 32 bit system Adobe X, latest version, results in this error message: You do not have privileges to perform this command. Windows trouble shooter indicates that the program is not compatible with my system settings. What needs to change?
This message occurs when I am trying to open Adobe Reader 10.1.3. The opening attempts are be either opening it directly to view a file on my computer or by trying to open a pdf file from the internet.
Could you try the following:
1. Repair the installation from the Control Panel > Programs and Features.
2. Launch Adobe Reader as an Administrator. You can do the same by right clicking on the application and chosing to "Run as Administrator"
I have tried the repair feature with no improvement. Also no change when trying to run as administrator.
I have found that I can get it to run in the unprotected mode. But this requires me to take additional steps each time I want to run the program
Thanks for trying out the suggestion Amice100.
1. Could you try and delete the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 10.0 folder and try running the repair operation again. This would help ascertain if no 3rd party plug-in is present on your system.
2. Would it be possible for you to share a screenshot of the error message? You can do the same by saving the current screen as an image and using the Camera icon (as above) to attach the same here.
I don't see an answer for this question - but I'm experiencing the same error on a Windows 7 SP1 machine. I've tried all the suggested steps here (uninstalled, reinstalled, removed Adobe Reader folder). Even installed recent v11 hoping that would allow me to open a PDF as the original problem exhibited itself on a v10.1.4 installation. This is a brand new machine running local administrator user. Shouldn't be a rights issue yet Adobe reports that I don't have privileges to run (open) Adobe reader.
I'd rather use the Adobe reader (rather than Foxit or another) but if I can't get it to install correctly I'm out of luck. Anyone get this issue resolved?
BTW: Tried to insert a picture of the error message dialogue but the Adobe picture uploader for this forum doesn't appear to work either...
