    Presenter 7 Runtime Error


      One of my users is getting a continual Runtime Error 2147467259 (80004005) when attempting to use Presenter 7.0.5 with PowerPoint 2007 under Windows 7 (with all the latest critical patches). Uninstalling Presenter (and Acrobat Pro Extended) completely and reinstalling does not fix the problem. The same presentation opens on a Windows XP system with PowerPoint 2007 and Presenter 7.05 without problems.


      Similar problems posted in the forums and elsewhere seem to have no solid resolution.


      Anyone have a fix, or at least suggestions?


      EDIT: Additional information: we completely removed Acrobat Pro 9 Extended and Presenter and installed Acrobat X and Presenter and it does exactly the same thing. Is Presenter just not compatible with Windows 7?

      Thanks in advance.

          I am having the same issue today - just out of the blue!  Did you receive any responses about your issue?

            None whatsoever. Either very few people are having this issue or many people are but no one has any idea how to fix it. We've basically concluded that Presenter 7 just isn't properly compatible with Windows 7 and are instructing our users who depend on Presenter to downgrade to Windows XP or look for another solution other than Presenter.

              I have this issue off and on.  Sometimes it just goes away, and sometimes it doesn't.  It prevents me from publishing or using any other Presenter functionality.  I have a hard time believing that no one else has this problem!  Thanks for responding.

                I don't have this issue, so far, and am running Win 7 64-bit with Office 2007.

                  I have not had any problem running Presenter on Windows 7.  I see you tried reinstalling Acrobat and Presenter but did you try uninstalling Powerpoint and then reinstalling? I suspect one of the Microsoft plug-in libraries is corrupt and causing the problem. I've seen problems like this corrected by re-installing Powerpoint.


                  Reminder: Adobe Presenter can only be installed with Powerpoint 2010 32-bit only.  It can be installed in Windows 7 64 bit or 32 bit. Remember....32 bit office only.

                    These are all 32-bit systems, and with one it was on an new installation of Office. But that doesn't mean that reinstalling PowerPoint might not help. We'll give that a try and see if it cures the problem.

                      I have gotten this error too - running Windows 7, Office 2010 (all installed by my IT department, I have no access to those installers).  New install of Presenter 7.07 after uninstalling previous versions.  Still happening.


                      Try this, as it SEEMS to have worked for me:


                      File > Options > Trust Center > ActiveX Settings


                      Select "Enable all controls without restrictions and without prompting..."

                      So far, working for me... I'll try to come back to this thread and update you if that changes...
