Please disable Protected Mode if you are able to do so on opening any PDF in Reader X
Open the Reader X . Open Edit -> Preferences -> General.
Unselect the checkbox Enable Protected Mode at startup.
Close Reader X .
Now try to open any PDF (in file list of TotalCommader or Copernic Desktob Search) and see if the problem still persist.
Also, please tell if the problem exist only when the PDFs are opened in file list of TotalCommader or Copernic Desktob Search or in general if any PDF kept in desktop or netwrok location is opened?
Had the very same issue. Followed your instructions and now it's resolved.
On unselecting the protected mode checkbox, Reader X will not work in Protected Mode. Please tell if the problem exist only when the PDFs are opened in file list of TotalCommader or Copernic Desktop Search or in general if any PDF kept in desktop or network location is opened?
After unselecting the checkbox (Enable protected mode at startup) in Edit-> Preferences -> General disables the protected mode and reader will run in nonprotected mode after that. The checkbox needs to be selected for Reader X to run in protected mode .
Unselecting the checkbox is not a workaround . It is just for investigation purpose.
Please let me know some other details related to the issue.
PDF can be opened only when PDF files in list of copernicus desktop search or commander search is being clicked or any PDF is not being opened in protected mode?
