The acrobat will close after 20 to 30 seconds after opening a pdf document. the application used to work but now does this every time. Anyone have an answer? its on a PC with win7 64 bit lots of ram and did work fine until today.
Same here. Acrobat closes after 10-20 seconds without a notice.
seems a lot of people are having this issue.
I tried a few of the suggested solutions on this forum, but nothing worked.
It works for a brief time and then the same problem pops up again.
Yes I also checked further.... it does work for a while then back to square one. I think personally the biggest problem with the cloud solution actually is no support other than other users like yourself. I for one remain a little sceptical especially when my income is dependent on the products and services I buy as a company determine my companies effectiveness.
It appears to me at least that Adobe should have firstly not released the service before thorough checking and they should offer support in a slightly better customer orientated way.
But there you go. Thanks for your reply... its appreciated.
I had a telephone chat with adobe support, but they couldn't help me. had to send my system info and they were going to forward it to the 'experts'.
did any of you uninstall CS5.5 before experiencing this problem? or uninstall another suite?
I am having the exact same issue. I've installed this on 2 completely different machines (one's an HP and one's a Dell). I have a Creative Cloud subscription, and ran the latest round of updates on my installation this morning, 7/19/2012
I need a solution to his pronto, Adobe! I use this program all the time.
I've been on chat with them ALL DAY today trying to resolve this...and still NOTHING! Even had some guy take control of my computer to look - and still NOTHING...now I'm trying to log back in to chat with this guy again...and he's GONE. ANNOYING ADOBE!!!!
I have the same problem. I uninstalled CS 5.5 on my home pc a few days ago because my subscription expired and I wanted to switch from the pdf xchange viewer to acrobat pro. But because it closed everytime I tried it I switched back to the xchange viewer. I don't work with acrobat professionally so it's not so important for me but it would be cool if that problem could be solved.
On my main HP workstation acrobat pro works fine without any problem. Maybe it has to do with the uninstallation of cs 5.5 but I'm not sure.
Please navigate to C:\Program Files (X86)\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD\cache and rename Cache file inside the Cache folder.
and rename it to Cache.db_old
Launch Photoshop (or any Creative Suite Product installed) and Click on 'Help' > 'Deactivate'.
Close it and open Photoshop again to activate.
Sign in using your Adobe ID
Now, please try to launch Acrobat and try to use and check if it works fine. If prompts Trial, then serialize Acrobat again.
Else, Try to launch Acrobat X, and instantly click on Help -> Check for updates see if Acrobat attempts to download the latest version 10.1.3, if it's downloaded successfully. Install the patch and check if Acrobat works. Alternatively, click on Help -> Repair Acrobat installation.
Well, I tried the above 'solution'. The cache/deactivate method as suggested works... but only for a brief time. After a while the problem just re-appears. As for the 'repair adobe installation': doesn't solve the problem. (and I already have 10.1.13). *sigh*.
Somebody at Adobe support also suggested to try an make a new user account in windows and try acrobat to see if that would help. it didn't. It had the same problem.
I have the same problem. TS is closed and I have doctorate deadlines as well as client deadlines - if anyone has a solution, I need help now.
The only option I can think of is to install Acrobat 9 Pro - understanding this will probably be problematic...
My findings are exactly the same. The software still does the same thing after trying the solution above.
In my opinion this is a software/licensing issue. The software appears to close because it cant license properly in some way. In any case, enough for now.... I have no more time to spend on this.
The below steps worked on my Win 7x 64 machine.
Removed all the products installed from CCM using Control Panel.
Manually removed all the remaining folders and all the registry entries.
Created a new admin account.
Installed Photoshop and Acrobat. Serialized the installed products using Photoshop. Launched Acrobat and it worked.
Sadly, this last option doesn't work for me since I am using this on a company machine that is giving me special privileges to install my own CC applications, and all of the other options have not worked. I will just go back to Acrobat 9 for now.
Will Adobe be working to correct this issue and offer an update? Can we get an email letting us know when the actual application has been fixed? Thanks.
These steps are TOTALLY ridiculous - how would you know how/where to remove ALL the folders/registry entries! I spent 9 hours yesterday with support - had multiple people take control of my computer - and NOTHING was fixed. It is 100% a licensing issue. How about Adobe STEP UP and when this issue is diagnosed they give those people a separate acrobat serial #. I'm pretty sure that would solve this whole problem....until they get their act together and figure out a fix. If I install the 30 day trial version - it works perfectly.
That is actually a really good idea, adbywate! Can we get a seperate serial number and just download the 30 day trial and serialize it using that serial number? That would be a lot easier than trying to reinstall 9 extended (which presents its own potential issues).
I tried talking one of the tech reps that I was working with yesterday - and he didn't even respond to the idea...but, seriously - I wasted a FULL work day yesterday trying to get this to work........I won't tell you how I got it to work finally..........but, when I pay good money for a product - I expect it to WORK! I Was seriously pulling my hair out - between meetings and a dropped internet connection - I had to work with 4 different tech reps that tried THE EXACT SAME SOLUTIONS - NONE OF THEM WORKING....it would fix it until I opened up photoshop & reactivated my creative cloud account.
This comment: If I install the 30 day trial version - it works perfectly. - says it all really. This issue will likely be resolved by Adobe, but Im not so sure Im going to spend hours on end messing with registries.
exactly my point! We paid for a product to WORK - not for us to be the BETA testers! There is NO REASON ANYONE should be expected to touch the REGISTRY of all things to get a paid product to work. COME ONE ADOBE - I need a fix TODAY!
I'm sure that Deepak will resolve the issue in due course. I have now refrained from using Acrobat until the problem is resolved and have resorted to other software brands for the PDF design.
Still, its a little strange how most other products I downloaded work OK. I did also note that AE also requests licensing on a continuing basis, but it does not bomb out FYI.
