Yes. My logon user has administrative rights.
Also, I don't know if this matters, but I installed RoboHelp 9 as part of the Tech Communications Suite.
Can you post an image of the error message you are getting and say whether it is the same regardless of whether it is the RH HTML or RH for Word application you are opening. Use the camera icon as shown below.
The fact that you have installed RoboHelp as part of the TCS shouldn't be an issue. Out of interest, do the other applications that are part of the suite launch OK? One other thing. Did you uninstall RHX5 completely before installing TCS3?

Here's the error message:
It only displays when I try to open RoboHelp HTML. When I try to open RH for Word, the software's splash screen flashes for a split second and then nothing. The program doesn't open up. No error message.
The other TCS apps open fine, except they are prompting me to enter a license key after I entered one when installing the suite. But, I'm not sure that's related to this issue.
In regards to uninstalling RHx5. It wasn't a clean uninstall. I attempted to uninstall it via the Control Panels - Add/Remove programs option. I recieved and error, "can't find Product Name" or something like that. It didn't fully uninstall the software. I manually removed the remaining folders in the Program Files directory and any entries I could find in the registry. There may be other RHx5 files floating around in the Windows Systems folder that I'm not aware of.
I just contacted support and this issue has been resolved. The tech support rep, Vick, had me uninstall. We then deleted some folders in the Programs\Common Files\Adobe folder. Caps and Adobe PCD. There may have been a third folder, can't remember. Anyway. I reinstalled and the program launched without error after that.
Can you clarify the folders? I can find C:\Program Files (x86)\Common files\Adobe\Adobe PCD.
But I can't find a folder called Caps? (possibly this is TCS specific, which I don't have, but just want to confirm it's correct.) And if you can remember if/what the 3rd folder is, that would be really helpful.
I have a collegue with a similar error in Acrobat and am hoping this might help - I posted on the Acrobat forums and was met with deafening silence.
After uninstalling the RoboHelp, we deleted the following folders:
D:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe 10.0
D:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\backup
D:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Adobe PCD
D:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\caps
The Adobe 10.0 folder may not be relevant to your setup.
Anyway, after deleting these folders we reinstalled RH9 and it worked.
Hope that helps.
Thanks very much for clarifying. Hopefully this will be some help with the Acrobat problem.
