You could tell us much more about your problem.
i have acrobat reader 8 in my pc.
but when i click to start it, it appears this message for me:
"application failed to initialize...(0xc0000034)... click ok to finish the execution."
so i can't use acrobat.
I've tried to uninstall and install again, but it doesn't work.
Help me please...
i have the same problem! Please help
After uninstall, did you try cleaning your system with left overs from previous Adobe Reader install (on the disk and in the windows system registry). On a clean system, get Adobe Reader from http://get.adobe.com/reader/
I deleted the Adobe Folder in the registry and then installed the Adobe Acrobat Reader version 9 again without success. I still have the same error and cannot open any PDF file as the application failed to initialize...(0xc0000034) message pops up as soon as I want to start Adobe...
Do you have any other suggestions as deleting my hard drive and set up my computer new?
Try this: download and extract Process Monitor from Sysinternals, run it, then start Adobe Reader.
Once it has produced the error, look at the Procmon output, and find the first instance of AcroRd32.exe
Press Ctrl+L, then select PID under 'Display entries matching' and enter the PID that you see next to the AcroRd32.exe entry above; click OK.
Now search for any serious error leading to the 0xC0000034 error. It may be a missing/corrupted DLL or such.
I do not find any serious error. I copied the files from the Process Monitor. It seems that it cannot find something from Windows. I have XP and hence do not understand why Acrobat wants to acess Windows NT...
Maybe someone can help me interpreting the processes and see what I can do...
I attached the picture when the Acrobat Process got initialized and the picture when Acrobat shows up the next time in the Process Monitor. Inbetween these two events everything seems fine...
What is going on here?
When I start Adobe Reader with Procmon running, I see a very much longer list of events. Can you run it one more time, then turn filtering on (Ctrl+L), and enter the PID as filter? This way we are sure we see everything.
You are right! Thank you very much. I understand the Procmon now....
I attached the file with the process status of the Adobe Acrobat reader.
It seems everything works fine...
I hope you can see more from this?
I am not an expert on this, but I anyway had a look at your attached csv file. It appears as if, near the end, a folder is created:
Can you copy this folder name and paste it in the Address bar of Windows Explorer? Does the folder exist? Is there anything in it?
There should be three files in it:
You are great, I think you got the source of the problem.Unfortunately, this folder does no exist.I remember I had a virus and the antivirus program changed or deleted the files you mentioned ...* msvcm80.dll
* msvcr80.dllAny suggestion of how to fix this?
What I would try if I were in front of your system:
- create that folder manually, and make sure it has full access rights for your user
- temporarily turn of antivirus software
- run the Adobe Reader installer again
let us know how it goes.
I created the folder, reinstalled the program while the Antivirus was turned off but no success. Still the same error...
I attached the logfile of the Process Monitor.
It seems it cannot find a file ...
Logfile.CSV 65.4 K
Sorry it didn't work out. The fact that it seemed to fail quite instantly after attempting to create that folder indicated (to me) that there may have been an access rights problem with that folder. So I asked you to create it manually. Why it received still NAME NOT FOUND, I don't know.
Hopefully some of the other regulars may have a look at this topic during North American daytime. Right now I have no additional ideas.
Sorry for having you asked all these complicated things, without any visible success...
In the process manager, the last enrty stated that the file MSVCP80.dll could not be find.
Therefore, I downloaded a new version of MSVCP80.dll and placed it in the respective order.
Now, everything seems to work!
Thank you very much for helping me and bringing me on the right track to solve the problem!
