    Adobe Reader 9 won't open some files -- jp2klib.dll

    DavidKRe Level 1

      I've had this problem for some time, and I think I've at least narrowed it down a bit. The problem is that some (but not all) PDF files cannot be opened in Adobe Reader 9.x on some computers, though they open fine on others. When you click on a problem file, or try to open it from within AR 9, the file may begin to display, but very quickly you get Windows' message "Adobe Reader 9.2 has encountered a problem and needs to close." AR then crashes; or rather, Windows shuts it down. The crash report gives the following basic information:

      AppName: acrord32.exe AppVer: ModName: jp2klib.dll

      ModVer: Offset: 00032c0d


      I tried copying a different version of jp2klib.dll that was on my computer, but that did not help.


      This problem only occurs on my desktop, not on the laptop, so it seems to be due to some interaction between jp2klib.dll and a specific driver or piece of hardware.


      Does anyone know of a solution to this problem?

          Maybe its a driver issue. Try turning off any video acceleration.

            There isn't any video acceleration. This is a pretty old computer. I've got a Samsung 912N flat-screen monitor, an HP DeskJet 6940 printer, an Epson Perfection 3170 scanner, an RCA cable modem, and a U.S. Robotics MAXg wireless router attached to it, as well as an ancient Compaq mouse and a Fellowes Glidepoint touchpad.
