Hi Bruce,
Please open registry by typing "regedit" in the Run window (Windows + R)
Now, navigate to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\acrobat\shell\open\ddeexec\application and changing the Key from "AcroviewA10"  to  "AcroviewR10.
Now, try launching Acrobat and let me know if the issue resolves.
Regards,

  • I get a error message "Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE Server.

    I bought a copy of Adobe Acrobat XI and installed it on my computer.  It worked good for about a month.  Than it would not load the program so I could.  I tried to open as the adminstrator and the program still does not open.  I ran a troubleshooter and it said"Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE Server".  What can I do to fix this problem so Acrobat XI will run?

  • I have Acrobat XI on a PC and have received a Fatal Error message indicating that "Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE Server."  Acrobat will not open now.  How do I regain access to the program?

    I have Acrobat XI on PC.  After trying to convert a webpage to PDF, I received a Fatal Error message indicating that "Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE Server."  Now, the program will not open.  How do I regain access to the program?

    I have Acrobat XI Pro and have been experiencing all sorts of "freeze ups" with it ever since Adobe released the new Acrobat DC the other week.  I see that an automatic update was pushed down to my Acrobat XI Pro at the same time.  Is this the first issue you have encountered with your Acrobat XI, or have you been having other issues suddenly as well??  Just wondering ...

  • What do i do when I receive Fatal Error Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE Server

    Can I get some help? I can't get the Acrobat XI Pro to open...I get the Fatal Error Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE server.

    You already setup a discussion for this, no need to create more. It has only been an hour since your last post. Considering this is Sunday, you may have to wait a while, though it really comes down to when someone with an answer happens to stop by. We are just users, not employees of Adobe (that is why it is called a user-to-user forum). I remember seeing posts on this in the past and suggest you do a forum search for past posts. I do not have the solution at hand.
    There are several posts under "DDE Server Acrobat Installation" search.

  • Acrobat X Pro failed to connect to a dde server

    I've been running Win 7 64 bit with near flawless results for some time now. This morning I made a pdf via ID but couldn't get Acrobat to open it up. I tried other, older pdfs with no luck. Double clicking on Acrobat X Pro gets me no where except the message that you see in my subject line.
    I'll mention too that my Adobe updater updated an obscure Adobe program this morning and I'm wondering if that had something to do with it? Is there a way to find and roll back that update?
    I've got work to do! Any suggestions?

    Sounds like the update is your problem. Try going to the control panel -- programs and features -- and do a repair to Acrobat.

    Hi,
    i think this has to do with the "Document Conversions Load Balancer Service".
    If you don't need the service than try to stop it:
    Start Central Administration > Operations > Services and stop the service.
    or 
    If you need it the service, try this:
    Start Central Administration > Operations > Service Account
    Change the service account to "Document Conversions Load Balancer Service" And Select a "Network Services" Click Save
    Hope this helps!

  • Q: What does this error message mean and what's next: Acrobat [(XI (11.0.06)]: "Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE server"?

    Acrobat Reader

    Sorry, I didn't read your question carefully, so my earlier reply is incorrect.
    You need to make a change to the Windows registry:
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\acrobat\shell\open\ddeexec\application: change "AcroviewA10"  to  "AcroviewR10"
    To do this automatically, download ddeexec.zip, unzip it, then double-click on the extracted file to run the registry script.

  • Getting error message: Acrobat failed to connect to a DDE Server

    Does anyone know how to resolve this?

    Assuming that you are on Windows, this requires a registry change.
    Download, unzip, then run this registry script: https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/11a8c69c-c042-4e86-9401-e2cf3fd038b7

  • Acrobat Failed to connect to a DDE Server

    I am using Adobe Acrobat Professional 9.2 and have started to receive this error after opening a few PDF's and once this error starts to show, cannot see the document, ie. It will not open the document.
    If I restart the computer then it will go back to working for once again a short period of time until I get this error again. Very consistent with the error.  I can open usually 3 to 4 documents before it stops working properly.
    Let's see if Adobe is once again paying any attention to us little guys out here. Sorry, but have had many problems with CS4 products across the board. Help us Adobe, it would be a good idea.  If I ignored these types of errors in my coding, I would be fired and/or removed from the project(s).

    Hi!  I am having an identical problem as swmyer.  I uploaded Adobe Acrobat Professional 9.2 two days ago, and have been incuring this result.  My computer is brand new, absolutely no extra software accept office is running.  Would appreciate anything you can do to help resolve this quickly.
