    Acrobat 8 Professional and Windows 7


      I've been reading allot of conflicting reports on whether Acrobat 8 works with Windows 7.  Does anyone have the answer to this?

          The confilcting reports may be because it works for SOME people and not for others. The bottom line is that it isn't a supported configuration.

            Go online and update your Acrobat Professional.  The version number will become 8.13 or something.  Everything runs well after that.


            Give it a try.

              Hi Twh,


              Both answers provided are correct.


              1. Adobe doesn't officially support Acrobat 8 Std/Pro on Windows 7. This may change depending on Adobe.

              2. After installing Acrobat 8 Std or Pro you will want to update it. Bringing it to the latest update/release corrects most reported issues with running Acrobat 8 on Windows 7. If you do not upgrade/patch after installing, a number of issues will be present, one being that you can't load Acrobat or it crashing shortly after opening it.


              I myself have tested it on Windows 7 Professional (x86), Enterprise (x86), and Ultimate (x64) it is running fine.
