I am experiencing exactly the same problem. Acrobat reader 9 works fine when run from the local machine, but gives a C++ runtime error when run from an account using a roaming profile. Again the use of the roaming profile is critical to being able to log on to multiple machines and have the same desktop/environment.
I believe that roaming profies caused issues with the last version of
the software as well. You can call support to see if they have a
workaround for version 9.
Has anyone found a solution to this problem?
I need a solution to the same problem.
C++ Runtime Library fails using PDF's in Firefox or using the Adobe 9 Reader standalone.
Beggars the question whether anyone from Adobe bothers to investigate these issues with their software and come up with a solution.
I do not really see this as Adobe's problem; if users hide the Application Data folder from an application, then I'm not surprised that it fails.
I think these kind of special cases should be taken up with Adobe support. Then it has a chance to be investigated and solved. This is just a user-to-user forum.
In my case nothing is hidden from the application.
Its the inability of Adobe software to deal with UNC path names. Not exactly rocket science is it?
This has been going on for ages. From my understanding v9.0.0 has an issue running on a domain with redirected folders, in particular the appdata folder. For some reason, if this folder has a UNC path not a drive letter then version 9 (Reader and full version) crash on launch. There have been a number of posts around the web about this since v9 came out. I'm surprised that Adobe havent sorted this out, cant be that hard a fix and I would assume that Adobe corp HQ run a windows domain with folder redirection in place
We're still running 8.1.3, and waiting patiently for 9.0.1
Don't hold your breath for a fix
8.1.3 has a major msi uninstall issue.
Version 9 should still be in Beta. Adobe is consistantly AWOL
when it comes to fixing or supporting their "free" programs.
They had a bogus non working shockwave msi installer on their site for about a year before they replaced it.
When I get 8.1.3 off I'm going back to version 7 or an alternative pdf
