          That's going to be WAAY different than the old version of Reader that is being discussed here. I suggest you visit and ask a question in the forum for Acrobat.

            Hi rogelioa,


            As mentioned above, Acrobat Pro DC closes itself,  could you try rebooting the machine once if you haven't already and try launching Acrobat again, does that work?

            Also, does Acrobat closes when you trying to launch the application or when trying to open a pdf file?

            Is there any error message you are getting? Which operating system you are using - Mac or Windows?

            Also, let us know dot version of Acrobat installed on the machine? You may refer to the steps given in this link on how to check the version in Acrobat: Identify the product and its version for Acrobat and Reader DC


            Let us know if you need any help.
