I have installed the trial version of Adobe Acrobat X Pro. When I try to use it I receive a message that "application manager failed to initialize." I have tried doing a repair installation, uninstall and reinstall and still get the same message. Any ideas?
Did you have any other copies of Acrobat installed on your computer? What have you tried so far to resolve your difficulties beyond repairing, removing, and reinstalling? Finally what version of Windows are you using?
It’s actually a purchased version. I purchased the Student and Teacher Edition. I have to initially download it as the trial version then I have to submit my verification to obtain a serial number in order to use it after the 30 day trial. I just purchased it on 5/8/12 and received it on 5/9/12. I have submitted my information to obtain the serial number already, just waiting on the serial number.
I have a similar problem
Windows 7 64 bit successfully running Adobe Acrobat X (for years) until a few days ago. Automatic update occured (Automatic updates in the past have never broken it before) Now everytime I start it up I get:
Adobe Application Manager, required to start your trial, is missing or damaged.
Please download a new copy of Adobe Application Manager from http://www.adobe.com/go/applicationmanager
As far as I know nothing else changed. Please help!
Exasperated I have taken the following steps:
1. Uninstall Adobe Acrobat X and Re-Install Pro 10.1.0 From Installation Disk - Same Adobe Application Manager Error
2. Uninstall Adobe Acrobat X, Downloaded and installed Adobe Pro X Trial Version - Same Adobe Application Manager Error.
I get the feeling that the automatic update was for another of the Adobe products on my system and somehow that has screwed up Adope Acrobat X?
OK Now found this series post on the web:
So going to try this solution:
His fix was surprisingly simple. He had me create a new user account in Windows with full administrative privileges. He then had me log in as that new user and install Acrobat there. Once I logged back in under my usual username, there was Acrobat and it worked seamlessly.
I will try installing adobe application manager from here:
I have had the same problem as well, since as long as I've owned the product (same, student edition). Yes, it's fixable by downloading that link, but why should we have to keep doing that? Has anyone found a fix? Thanks!
Windows 7, 64bit, Acrobat X Pro
Wondering if it has to do with registering/ signing on to Adobe? Just a thought. I hadn't done that since I reinstalled this program a month ago. Wondering, because after I signed it, it said thank you for registering this program. Maybe that will connect the dots? Time will tell
