Have same problem with Acrobat XI and a Canon 9000F Mark II scanner. For several years, this has been a rock solid reliable combination of hardware and software, but not in the last 30 days or so. Repaired Acrobat installation. Updated Canon driver, dated May 1, 2017, which could be the source of the problem. Very annoying.
I have the same issue. Started happening about 60 days ago. Tried both the DC and $500 package of Adobe Acrobat Pro and same thing. Using Samsung c1860FW with latest drivers. Frustrating
I have same problem, seems to have started when Windows 10 did an update a short while back. I have a Xerox printer/scanner that was trouble free till we went from Windows 7 to Windows 10.... perhaps a patch will be provided from Microsoft some day!
Perhaps its a Microsoft issue, perhaps not. Could you please share some information for further investigation?
1) Are scans reproducible in a certain settings or steps?Mention them.
2) Acrobat version
3) Are scanner working with other applications that use scanners?
4) Please share crash logs whenever Acrobat crashes in step 1.
To create logs please follow these steps.
1. Retry the scenario where Acrobat crashes
2. Do not close the pop-up when Acrobat crash
3. Open Task manager
4. Right click on “Acrobat.exe *32” process and select ‘Create Dump file’
5. It will create a log file in temp folder. (Path will be displayed on pop-up comes when logs created).
You can also check this under

Hi, I sent you DMP file as you described here, same new issue with Acrobat XI and Canon 9000F II after previous long successful running.
You have to share me the link for the DMP file you uploaded to cloud.
I'm having basically the same issue. Started happening a couple of months ago. I try to scan a document on my CanoScan 8800F, and most of the times I get an application crash.
Is the issue reproducible to a particular document? No. I can have the
crash happen, restart Acrobat, and scan the page again and have it work.
Acrobat version: Acrobat Pro XI version 11.0.21
Does the scanner work with other applications? Yes. I have never had a
scanning failure using VueScan.
In the last two days, I've had zero crashes. I'll provide a crash dump
when it crashes.

I have exactly the same problem under the same circumstances. Running Acrobat XI and a Canon Lide 220. Worked perfectly for over a year, and now refuses to complete a scan. Error Message: "Adobe Acrobat has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."
I'm not 100% certain, but I believe this started happening after the Windows 10 "Creators Update" . Had put that off as long as possible, but then it stated itself one day....
Please figure this out; my workflow is dead without use of the scanner...
Here is the info requested by tech support above:
(1) Are scans reproducible...: No. Error happens every time
(2) Acrobat Version: 11.0.20
(3) Does scanner work with other applications: Yes; including Elements
(4) Crash Log link below:
I have a Canon Pixma 5320 which has successfully scanned hundreds of documents on an HP laptop and on my Surface 4 Pro, but after recent Windows 10 updates it started crashing when I used an HP scanner. I removed the HP scanner and uninstalled Acrobat. I reinstalled Acrobat and reconnected to my Canon scanner. It always asks me if I want to make Acrobat my default PDF file handler, when I start Acrobat, I always answer YES and that never works, it keeps asking. I have tried running Acrobat as administrator and that doesn't fix EITHER the problem of not being able to set Acrobat as my default PDF hander nor the problem I have with acrobat crashing every time I try to scan pages. Sometimes I can get away with scanning a single page before it crashes, but this is completely unacceptable and getting a MAC starts looking more attractive every day.
I am using Windows 10 Version 1703, build 15063.674
I have Adobe Acrobat 11 Pro, version 11.0.0
I have a crash dump, but don't know how to attach it.
I have the same problem with my Canon MG7550. This is a wireless scanner and the problem occurs on my PC (Win 7 and Acrobat DC) and on my laptop (Win 10 and Acrobat XI pro). I also have a Canon DR F120 scanner and this, whist not completely crash free, is much less of a problem.
Drivers and all relevant OS and software updated regularly.
Is progress being made on fixing this please?
I am facing the same issue. I have 7 Fujitsu fi-7160 scanners with 7 Adobe Acrobat DC users, and it happens intermittently with every user. I have submitted a couple support tickets, and even sent in dump files when the crashes occur, but have never heard anything back.
Acrobat X exhibits same problem. Worked perfectly long after initial WIn 10 Update. But during this summer (probably the WIN 10 Creator update), it malfunctions (hang/crash) almost 100% of the time
I have the same problem for a couple of months now. It must be a problem with Acrobat XI Pro because Foxit Reader scans fine.
I hope this helps many of you with the issue of Adobe Acrobat Pro or DC crashing while Scanning. After much heartache and frustration I have finally found peace with this issue. Hope that it works for all of you as well.
I have windows 10 installed with the latest Adobe Acrobat Pro installed. Important to note that I had the same issue with DC as well.
I have used multiple models of scanners/printers, brother, hp, Samsung, Konica, etc...All of them would produce the same errors when scanning. It was unpredictable as well. Sometimes would work and sometimes would get the Adobe Acrobat Program has stopped working message.
I hope I do not jinks myself but here is what worked for me. I created a PDF document with one page in it and called it "scan.pdf". (probably doesn't matter what you call the file or how many pages are in it)... Open this file or similar file first, then select scan to append to existing document. Works every time for me. You can then with extract the pages that you want to a file name or copy and paste them to file explorer or similar...
Drat, didn't work for me. :-(
Yea. I jinked myself. This problem has started happening again for me. Doesn't matter which printer I use. Brother, Cannon, Konica, HP, etc.... Definitely seems to happen less to me when I open a previous document and add to it or create a blank page first and then add to it.....
I have Adobe acrobat DC and Adobe acrobat Pro with CS4.
The DC gets that error and the Acrobat Pro in the CS4 Package still works fine.
Just to let you people know.

I've had same issue using Canon LIDE 210..
Here's what fixed it for me.
Open "run" prompt in windows by pressing WINDOWS KEY + R on keyboard.
In run box type: SERVICES.MSC and hit ENTER or click OK.
In services, double click on "Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)" service.
Look for "startup type" under the "general" tab.
Change the startup type to "Manual"
Select Apply and OK
Reboot computer and try scanning again.
I hope this helps someone.
I recently bought a new computer and installed Acrobat adobe Pro XI which worked without a problem on my old computer. Now when I tray to scan everything seems to go fine until is finishing scanning and before the document shows up, it crashes. I have tried to reinstall the program, repair it and updated it. I am not sure what can be wrong with it but I have noticed that sometimes it will randomly work properly after so many tries, like 1 out 5 attempted scans or 1 out 9 attempted scans.
This is the crash file: Shared Files - Acrobat.com
Needless to say, I have the same problem. In my case it is with Adobe Acrobat X Pro, and like most others, my problem is also with a Canon product (mine is an ImageClass D400 multifunction). I have had both products for years... literally, with no problems. Maybe 2 or 3 months ago the problem started and I can't tell why, except that I did get a new laptop and re-installed Acrobat in it. As several have described, the problem appears to be intermittent, although in my case it now fails 90% of the time which is unacceptable.
I have tried all the recommendations in this forum so far, and none has worked. Today I tried the "custom scan" option and it worked several times, will this work consistently? I can't tell, but I will add this to the list of things other frustrated users can also try
Thanks for sharing the logs. We will verify the logs and update you.
Note: Acrobat Pro 11 or below are already declared as End of support product, End of Support means that Adobe no longer provides technical support or distributes runtimes. This policy affects product and security updates for all derivatives of a product or product version (localized versions, minor upgrades, operating systems, dot and double-dot releases, and connector products). The issue you are facing might be fixed in the latest version(Acrobat DC). So I suggest you, please use the trial version of latest Acrobat DC- https://acrobat.adobe.com/in/en/free-trial-download.html , as there are multiple updates in Acrobat DC and this issue may already resolved there. Also, you will have an option while installing Acrobat DC that it won't impact your installed version of Acrobat 11 or Acrobat 10.
