I installed Adobe Acrobat 7.0 successfully. But when I convert a word file into PDF file, a error message pop-up as " AcroDist.exe application error --- the instruction at "0x0048C9e5" referenced memory at "0x0190eb6c", The memory could not be "read" Click on OK to terminate the program "
If I click the program Acrobat Distiller, the same message box shows up.
I tried to uninstalled and re-installed. Couldn't solve the problem.
What Operating System. From the response, I assume it is XP. AA7 should work fine on that one. I assume there are no 64-bit uses (not common with XP). For a test, try selecting print-to-file. After that file is created, open it in Distiller to create the PDF. How does that do the job?
You can try to increase the virtual memory of your machine. Here are few things, you can try- Remove Acrobat using Adobe Acrobat cleaner tool and re install Acrobat in a new admin account.

Hope that helps.
This problem came up on my laptop today and I have found a solution, at least on mine. I was getting the exact same error as above (with different memory locations) when I tried to start Distiller (Acrobat 7.0). It had worked fine for years. On mine it was limited to my specific user account. I could run Distiller fine from the Administrator account. I also created a new standard user account to test with and it ran fine from that one as well. But it wouldn't run from my personal account. So I knew it was something with that specific account.
To make a long story short, it ended up being a corrupt cache. You can find the cache in the following location:
C:\Documents and Settings\[your user name]\Application Data\Adobe\Acrobat\Distiller 7\
What I did was just rename the old cache folder and let distiller recreate it. That fixed it. Good luck.
