My free Acrobat trial expired and now I can't open PDFs with Adobe Reader

I recently downloaded a free trial of Adobe Acrobat Pro before purchasing the software.  I already have Adobe reader installed on my computer (Dell PC -- Windows 7).  I attempted to purchase Adobe Acrobat as the parent of a student and I was told I had to wait for verification, which could take 1-2 days.  In the mean time, EVERY time I try to open a PDF, it asks me to buy the software and reminds me my trial has expired.  How can I revert back to using the free Adobe Reader I have always used?  If I had known it would be this much trouble, I never would have tried the free trial!  Can anyone help me out?
Thank you!!

  • I just upgraded to OS X Lion and now I can't open the application Adobe ImageReady CS because PowerPC applications are no longer supported. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    I just upgraded to OS X Lion and now I can't open the application Adobe ImageReady CS because PowerPC applications are no longer supported. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    There is no fix. It simply means that the software is outdated. Adobe would need to release a newer non-PPC version that supports Lion. They may have done that already, I don't know.

  • Can't open pdfs with Adobe Acrobat X

    I can't open pdfs with Adobe Acrobat X. I get this message:
      Warning: Distiller will not process .Log, .PDF or .JDF file extensions
    What do I need to do to be able to open .pdf files? I could open them previously.

    What are you getting the message in response to? Was this a creation of a PDF that resulted in the message? What are you using Distiller for? Distiller can only open PS and EPS files for processing to create a PDF.
    PDF files are opened in Acrobat. For opening PDFs, Distiller has nothing to do with the opening. So I really have no idea. It sounds like you may just be having a creation error since you mentioned a log file. If you were creating a PDF, have you checked the LOG file for the errors? The log file is usually located where you were going to create the PDF, but is created as Distiller processes the file (part of the general Acrobat creation process) and is deleted if successful.
    If you were trying to create, go back to the original application and print to file with the Adobe PDF printer. Then open that file in Distiller to create a PDF. Any errors will be shown in the window and an indication if the PDF was created or not.

  • I have a pdf that i can not get to print and I can only open it with Adobe Reader.

    I have a pdf that will only open in Adobe Reader.  I need to print it but when I try, I keep getting the message "Before you can preform .....you must install a printer."  I have several printers networked to this machine.  They all have up to date drivers.  I've tried changed the default printer.  I must print this document and am getting very frustrated.  I am on a Windows 7 PC.

    Hello,
    In order to troubleshoot the Adobe Reader printing issues, please refer to the following link:- Troubleshoot PDF printing | Acrobat, Reader.

  • Can't open PDFs with Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

    I downloaded AR DC and cannot open PDFs while using Google Chrome.  I get a message that I have to accept the end user license but I can't find it.  If I switch to Firefox I can open the same PDF without a problem.  I am on MacBook Air Yosemite 10.10.3

    Chrome uses its own, built-in (and buggy) PDF viewer.

  • Updated my server to OS X Mountain Lion - and now I can't open pdf files, that my users share on wiki.

    Hi!
    I've updated my mac mini lion server to mountain lion server. I have an exentsive use of wiki in my education environment. Everything looks great, except, when uploading an PDF file to the wiki document folder I can no longer download the file - I can preview the file on the wiki page, but I can no longer download the file to my iPad / iBook.
    Come on Apple - you did not remove that feature!!!!
    Oh - the same problem comes to pages documents etc.
    What to do - my students starts monday - do I need to role-back my server?
    Kind regards,
    Martin Rise Christensen

    The problem is not in the Wiki itself but in the frontend version that gets displayed when you browse it from an ipad.
    The webpage looks different on the ipad because of that. If you use another browser on the ipad and you get the "default" frontend you can upload just fine.
    You can also disable this ipad version alltogether but you have to go in modify the code to do it. This will display the "default" frontend for every device.

  • Can't print PDF with Adobe Reader 10.1.12 and Mac OS 10.7.5

    I can print other things from this computer to my printer but not PDFs. Have been able to for years but not now. "Print as image" works but print quality too low.
    Using HP Laser Jet P3005dn
    Very frustrating. Have not gotten anything from apple, HP, or adobe communities.

    Went back to HP.com and this time was able to see and download latest driver and firmware for HP LaserJet P3005dn  Installation of new firmware was done thru the HP Printer Utility application on my iMac OS 10.7.5
    I was able to choose my printer and then upload the firmware file from the iMac to the printer. This has completely solved the problem!
    Thank you ~graffiti Not sure why I was not able to access the driver and firmware earlier from the HP site but eventually I found it.

  • I Just downloaded Acrobat Pro after trial and now I can't open any files...

    I Just downloaded Acrobat Pro after trial and now I can't open any files, when I click on icon I get this message: the last time you opened Acrobat, it unexpectedly quit while reopening windows.  Do you want to try to reopen its window again? If you choose not to reopen windows, you may have to open and position the window yourself.  There are 2 options: Don't Reopen or Reopen  Either choice leads to a window that pops upend says please wait while we launch Acrobat and then window just closes quickly.

    Hi mbt6833,
    You may goto control panel and then go to program and features.
    Select the Acrobat pro and chose the option change from the top. Fallow the onscreen instruction a windows will pop up where you need to choose repair.

  • HELP! I attempted to erase free space and now I can't open any files!

    Hi everyone! I hope you can help me with my problem.
    Last night, I attempted to erase free space from my HD using disk utility. During the operation, the computer hung, so it wasn't able to complete 'creating temporary file' operation. So i had to stop the operation. And now, I can't open any files! Turns out my HD was full. But prior to my attempt to erase free space, I still had 25GB out of 55GB of free space. What happened? And how do I fix it? A lot of important files are in my HD and I don't want to lose any of it.
    Hope somebody could help me. Thanks a lot!

    Hi, Scary isn't it? I did the self same thing. Check your trash, you should see one or more disk images there. Empty the trash. All will be OK thereafter.
    If they're not there, restart and either the system will sort itself out or they will appear in the trash, so empty it.
    See here for my thread on the same subject.
    Good luck,

  • My credit card expired and now I can't update paid for apps. Why can't I upgrade without a credit card?

    My credit card expired and now I can't update paid for apps. Why can't I upgrade without a credit card?

    The "None" option is not available. Presumably because I have already purchased on that Apple ID with a credit card.
    That is not likely the case. As you can see in my account in the US  store I have a bank card in place and I have the None option.

  • Had to update to lightromm 4.4 for raw photos and now I can't open my photos

    I had to update to LR 4.4 to edit raw photos and now I can't open my photos in order to edit them.  Please help

    Canon 70D requires Lightroom 5.2 or later. The raw files from this camera cannot be imported by Lightroom 4.4. You can however download the free Adobe DNG Converter version 8.6 and convert these  RAWs to DNG which can be read by Lightroom 4.4.

  • HT4972 I updated my ipod touch and now I can't open any of my videos what happened and what can I do to get them to open

    I updated my ipod touch and now I can't open any of my downloaded apps, what would happen if I reset it to factory settings?

    Try a hard reset.  To do this, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.
    If still no luck try downloading and installing a free app from the app store.  This has resolved the issue for many users.

    I am in the middle of a job using CS 6, but at the same time opening the Creative Suite apps.  I created an InDesign file in CS 6, saved it, and now I can't open it. I'm getting this message: Cannot open file because it was saved with a newer version of Adobe InDesign CC (10.1). You must use that version or later to open the file." AARRGGHH! So how do I access the file?

    Sounds like you opened and saved it in CC, so now you need to go back to CC and either complete the project there, or export to IDML to take it back into CS6.
