Really? No help for XP x64?
I'd upgrade to Windows 7, but since I run a Graduate Program in Bioinformatics, most of the bioinformatics software ignores Microsoft these days... nothing is backwards compatible. I remember going by the Adobe building and having a proud Ohioan tell me, "They only make a few products, but they make them well!"
I guess Adobe is bowing down to the great dollar Bill.
Did you face this error launching any pdf file or with some specific PDF file? If this error is specific to only specific PDF file then please share that file.
No, this happened with all files. But, let me give everyone an update:
I found only ONE other question similar to mine at this thread:
Unlike that poster, I did not have a quicktime problem. I am however running the same operating system (WinXP-x64). Adobe 9 gave no problems whatsoever.
After Adobe X CRASHED my computer, I restarted the computer and the error went away, but so did video features of Adobe reader: For example, the Startup flash screen is gone. And the box asking me to make comments is gone. The Icons have taken on a distinctively two-dimensional appearance.
Worst of all, my entire computer has slowed to a crawl. All PDF's will now take close to 60 seconds to open, but also most office documents, and even all menu windows. I believe there is a VIDEO conflict (e.g. a blank square opens then 20 seconds later fills in with a menu), although the "no disk found" is pretty scary... as if Adobe X has changed some install paths. Running 4GB RM, AMD opteron dual-core with a decent ATI dual monitor output and the latest catalyst drivers.
Look I'm no noob to computers. If Adobe X is not going to behave on my system, just tell me how to uninstall it and get back to version 9. Please.
Is your OS updated to the latest SP2 for Windows XP x64? What are the other applications you have Installed on your machine? Did you try uninstall and Re-Install of Reader X? You can uninstall from Add Remove Programs by selecting the application you want to remove and click on remove or uninstall.
Reader 9 builds are available here
Hi, I recently had this 'error' message too. It turned-out to be my printer, which if left ON
with the computer OFF....then when the computer starts it was looking for the built-in
card-reader! Now I leave an SD card in the reader....problem solved.

Interesting. Thanks for your reply. It could be a printer problem because at the time I had installed a new printer. I apologize for not posting back but Adobe X finally started working properly after a complete computer shutdown and reboot (not restart). Because that didn't seem very informative, I failed to post back. I don't have a card reader on this box though.
