I have adobe pro x 10.1.5 and i am trying to convert a pdf to word and the following comes up:
the specified file could not be written to. it may be in use
As per the description above, while converting a PDF file to Word, you are getting an error message "the specified file could not be written to. it may be in use", Is that correct?
Please save all the files, close Acrobat, reboot the machine and try converting the PDF to Word, and see if this brings any difference.
You can also try saving the document to a different folder and see if the error message still comes up. If the issue persists, please check for any pending updates of Acrobat(if available) from Help>check for updates, reboot the machine and try converting the PDF file.
