Acrobat X crashes when accessing Officejet Pro 8600 Plus

Acrobat crashes every time - click create, PDF from scanner, next select one such as "custom scan" and bye-bye Acrobat (message is Acrobat has stopped working).


Just bought the 8600 all-in-one which is wireless in the network. Another computer, also running Acrobat X works just fine.



Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)

Acrobat 9.5 and X (both crash)

Scanner software up-to-date

Acrobat software up-to-date

Have did the uninstall/reinstall of Acrobat and HP - no luck

Can scan via HP software and printer panel

Just does not work with Acrobat


Computer and Acrobat 9.5 was scanning just fine with HP 7200 - bought 8600, installed and troubles began. I uninstalled 9.5 and installed Acrobat X and it still crashes.


I am thinking there must be some conflict between the new and old printers (I uninstalled old - something left over?) but do not know where to look. Help!

    Try creating and logging into Windows using a new user profile. It sounds like something got leftover from the v9 install -- especially since you say that another machine with AX works just fine.

    Did you have any luck with fixing this issue? I am having the same issue with an HP Scanner and Acrobat X on my new computer running Windows 7.

    The Windows Fax and Scan utility works. I got Acrobat to initiate the scan, but then it crashes everytime.
