Adobe Reader XI does not open files with a command line "path" argument.

Adobe Reader XI does not open files with a command line "path" argument. Version X and lower all worked fine. I have deleted and reinstalled the program with no success. Is this a bug?

Hi Daniel,
What is the make of the printer and is it using PCL or PS driver.?
Do you have Acrobat installed on this machine as well?
Please check if 'Print Spooler' service is running on the machine.

    Please try following steps:
    1. Run the installed Adobe Reader X.
    2. Click on Edit in the menu bar.

  • Adobe reader sometimes does not open

    Hi there,
    On the16 September 2014, there was an update to Adobe Reader version 11.0.09 (we are now at the version 11.0.10). Since then, on one of my computers, I have the following problem: No way to open a pdf file on first try if I (double)click on it (either from my disks, or from Firefox or from Thunderbird - as attached messages, etc.) I have to (double)click on each file several times (even sometimes more than 10 times) and the file finally opens!
    Each times, however, a process "AcroRd32.exe" is launched and remains (without opening a new window on the screen), so I have to stop all of these processes manually after a while.
    I've look at the web to find some help. No way. I've scanned my computer with several anti-virus, anti-spyware and anti-malware softwares. Everything looks clean. I also un-installed Adobe Reader and re-installed it. Same problem. When I was able to do so, I un-installed Adobe Reader and replaced it with a version older that version 11.0.09, and the problem was solved. This looks like a problem in the new version of Adobe Reader and this is more than annoying! I apparently cannot find older versions of this software any more..
    Can someone help?
    Thanks in advance!
    Cheers, Eric.

    First thing I would try is to disable Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].
    P.S. you can find (almost) and old Reader version on the Adobe FTP site

  • Adobe Reader XI does not open

    Why won't my adobe reader open and read PDF files. It is very annoying

    Google Chrome uses its own PDF viewer.
    Regarding Adobe Reader not opening local PDF files, three possibilities
    Using Windows Explorer navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader, then double-click on Eula.exe and accept the license agreement
    Can you open Adobe Reader by itself?  If so, try disabling Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].
    It could even be a malware issue; see

  • Adobe Reader XI will not open files

    Hi, I have tried to open pdf in Adobe Reader XI but the programme flashes open briefly without displaying the file and immediately closes again.
    No warnings are displayed.
    I've tried re-installing, disabling protection and checking incompatibilities without success - any suggestions?

    If you are in Windows (which we don't know), you can try using Windows Explorer to navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader, then double-click on Eula.exe and accept the license agreement

  • [SOLVED] Sudo Ranger does not open files with VIM

    I am using ranger as my file manager. And sometimes I run it with sudo. But then it want's to open all with nano. Even tough the environment variables (EDITOR & VISUAL) are set to vim.
    Maybe it hast something to do with /bin/sh - but when that is the case, how do I change the default behaviour of /bin/sh?

    Sure you can. As the sudoers man page describes, the env_reset option is on by default. You could use the env_keep options. Or use the -E flag for sudo. Or....

    It sounds as if you downloaded Adobe Acrobat Pro. If you did, uninstall it. Then repair Adobe Reader.
    The free Acrobat account has no connection to any of this.

  • Adobe Reader 9 is not opening same files in Browser "Error in this Page"

    Adobe Reader 9 is not opening same files in Browser "Error in this Page"
    If I try to open this pdf file manually then its works.
    The Error comes if I try to open Big Files or some else Files in the Browser.
    This Error was not comming with Adobe 8.

    To uninstall Adobe Reader, make sure (using Task Manager's Processes tab) that Adobe Reader is not running.  Browser windows should also be closed.
    If you still cannot proceed, try in Safe Mode, or use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.
    P.S. Adobe AIR and are not directly related to Adobe Reader, and can be uninstalled independently.

  • Adobe Acrobat 11 will not open files in IE 10.0.06

    Adobe Acrobat 11 will not open files in IE 10.0.06. Problem started about 2 months ago. It can open older files on computer but cannot open or downloadd any from internet. Using Office 2010. Already spent an hour with my computer tech support under warranty. Please help identify issue. Thanks

    As a web designer - IMHO, Internet Exploder is absolute garbage disguised as software. This (and thousands of other threads in this and many other forums throughout the web) is just more proof of that. I've used Firefox since 2002 when it was still called Mozilla. It does about a million things IE can't and won't, and does them better, faster, and more sensibly.
    Microsoft KNOWS that most corporate workstations have Windows and most I/T departments forbid installation of unapporved software, including browsers, so (by a very slim margin) IE is still the most used browser in the world, but... that doesn't by any means make it the best choice. Because they know so many people are literally FORCED to use it at work, they will not make it more functional than they absolutely have to, because they don't care if people like it or not, when they have no other choice.
    On a home computer, it's different, and that's why Firefox is just a fraction of a percentage point behind IE in worldwide use, and thanks to iPhones, Safari is rapidly climbing the numbers too.
    Rather than trying to work around something that even Microsoft won't bother to fix, abandon their junk and go with Firefox, Opera, Chrome or Safari. It won't be long till you're glad you did.

  • Adobe Reader X does not launch

    Frequently, Adobe Reader X does not start on my Windows 7 computer.
    I have tried the following methods of access:
    Desktop link
    Start > All Program > Adobe Reader X
    Run > C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe
    Environmental specs:
    Computer: ASUS laptop
    OS: Windows 7, fully updated as of 2/5/12
    RAM: 8 gigs
    Processor: Intel i5, second gen
    Subsequent attempts to launch Adobe Reader X add another "AcroRd.exe *32" image to the "Processes" tab in Windows Task Manager (the count of these images can build up very high).
    These same attempts fail to add an "Adobe Reader X" task in the "Applications" tab of Task Manager.
    The CPU and Memory were only at 25% of their capacities during the last occurrence.
    [Failed] attempts taken to fix problem:
    Repair install
    Complete uninstall / reinstall
    As of now, the only workaround I have found is to restart my computer. If I am lucky, Adobe Reader X will open after booting. Otherwise, I just have to keep restarting until it works.
    Any help would be great.

    Would it be possible for you to:
    1. Temporarily disable the antivirus program and try launching Reader again.
    2. Try launching Reader by right clicking on the shortcut and selecting "Run as Administrator"
    If all the above steps produce negative results, please check the Event Logs on your machine (Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Evenet Viewer > Windows Logs > Application) and see if you are seeing any error related to Adobe Reader.
    Also, could you let me know if launching Adobe Reader produces any error of sorts, or does it simply not launch inspite of a process being spawned.

  • Adobe Reader XI does not run using Win7 Pro

    Trying to run Adobe Reader XI on a PC running Win7 Pro, but it starts, gives gray screen, then shuts down.  However, I can read pdf docs within Google Chrome.
    I was running Reader version 10 with no problem, went to upgrade to 11, and now no versions work, as I've tried to uninstall and reinstall ver 9,10,11 but none work.  Help!

    I ran the script but does not fix issue.
    When I run Adobe Reader or click on a .pdf file on my drive, the Adobe reader program starts, but gives a gray screen while my hard drive spins, then program closes.
    any ideas?
