I tried to decrypt multiple files at once but unable to succeed. I did try many options suggested in the internet but no luck. So hoping i could find some help here..
Software used : Adobe Acrobat X Pro , OS: Windows 7 Enterprise
Here is what i did to decrypt 3 files which have same password and are placed in a folder in my desktop
> Created new action using the action wizard
> Under the "Protection" Action, selected encrypt - Option - Security Method - "None"
> Start with -> "A folder on my computer"
> Save to -> Ask when action is started & saved the action
When i run this action, it doesn't prompt me to enter the password so that it could decrypt instead it gives me the message in the image I've attached.
Can you open the files with File > Open... ?
Yes i am able to open the file that way. Encryption of multiple files works perfectly, but when i try to decrypt them in batch, it gives me the above message.
I found the issue. Missed a step here - "Under Preferences > Action Wizard you must set the security method to the same as your files (Password / Certificate / LCDRM) so you get prompted for the details when the Action first runs" . Didn't notice this
Works perfectly now. Thanks !
