You get this error message when doing what?
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...
