What is it that you mean by the typewriter tool documents? Is it a 3rd party tool?
Could you point me to a location wherein I can install the same.?
"Typewriter tool documents" are documents created with Adobe Acrobat using its typewriter tool. I included two links as examples.
In Acrobat 10 the typewriter tool is renamed and relocated. It appears as a tool in the Tools panel, Extended Features, as opposed to Comments. It is labeled "Add or Edit Text Box", though the properties window that appears is still labeled Typewriter.
My bad. I got confused earlier since you had mentioned Adobe Reader.
I tried accessing the said links on my end, and was able to see the Typewriter toolbar correctly as expected.
Did you open the files inside Firefox or Internet Explorer using the embedded Reader?
Do you have Adobe Acrobat or Reader 10.1.2 installed on a Windows Vista or Windows 7 system?
Only the first attempt opens the typewriter toolbar correctly on the systems I tested. Later on no typewriter toolbar opens again and I often get BEX (buffer overflow exceptions) resulting in DEP (Data Execution Prevention) exceptions:

I tried launching the said URL inside IE7 and IE9 and was able to view the PDF with the toolbar on a Win XP/Win7 system with only Reader 10.1.2 installed.
Could you try repairing the application from the Contrrol Panel > Programs and Features and see if it solves the issue.
Repairing the installation doesn't solve this issue. Also deinstallation and reinstallation doesn't help. I even tried the en_US version of the Reader 10.1.2.
For reproduction of this issue I simply change the URL of the IE9 from
What is your OS language - German? Do you see the crash happening on English OS?
Yes, my OS language is German. Until now I had no chance to test an English OS. Perhaps next month.
Thanks for the information. We are able to reproduce the issue and looking into it. Will keep you posted.
This is happening for me too. First I thought it was a Windows Update but then I realised they're applied every month and usually on a Tuesday. This issue started occurring in-between Windows Updates.
We are using Windows 7 x86 and x64 and Acrobat Reader 10.1.2.
This issue seems to be fixed with Adobe Reader 10.1.3.
