Thanks. I suggest that Adobe link to that page from where I tried first: https://bugs.adobe.com/ and/or https://bugs.adobe.com/confluence/display/ADOBE/Home. (For the record: bugs.adobe.com does not track Adobe Reader bugs.)
Adobe’s homepage is hopeless; I avoid it if possible. So I tried
adobe bug trackerand
adobe reader bug tracker. A thread in this forum was on the second page of results as for the latter. Not having more time to waste, I drew up a thoughtful report with screenshot and basic technical details, and posted it. That constitutes the extent of the effort I am willing to put into this, unless Adobe is willing to pay me.
Really, I suggest putting a clear “Report a Bug” item in the Help menu of the application. 99% of users are not interested in forums, nor in clicking around to find some obscure bug-report page; they are interested in using the software to get work done, and that’s it. If (say) your testers/enthusiasts/fans/forum junkies never tried opening a PDF file across an NTFS directory junction, you risk missing a bug and annoying the “long tail” of of customers. And yes, I am a customer: Adobe Reader is released for reasons of profit; otherwise ADBE owners will want to hear about it. So I stick to what I said: Either make it easy for me to give you a quick tip about a bug, or pay me for my time untangling brokenness in code I can’t even see.
Yep, I've got this same error anyone know of a fix yet?
Try turning off Protected mode. This... feature has too many bugs: file being opened from DFS shares give the same error.
