    Reader 9.0 - runtime error when launching from pdf

      Reader 9.0 does not like to launch from an associated pdf. It will occasionally open but 98% of the time it returns a Visual C++ Runtime Library error: "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the Application's support team for more information"

      If you open Reader 9.0 directly and drag a pdf into it, there is no problem. Everything works the way it is supposed to. It is only an associated launch that causes the problem. No other apps are experiencing launch problems on this comuter.

      System is running XP-SP3. System resources are not being taxed. Of course I have already tried uninstalling, reinstalling, rebooting.

          Yup, same here, OS and all.
          BUT, I can't even get Reader 9.0 directly without that error!
          When will I learn to stop trusting major X.0 releases from ANY software company?
          As always, I have a 8.1.2 full install saved and reverting back to it for now.
          BTW, Adobe initially looks like they will let you download 8.1.2, but then they switch you back up to 9.0. Gotta watch 'em.
