Problem w/"combo boxes" cause the user to double click for the dropdown menu, but not for everyone.

I have created a form with Adobe Acrobad Pro 9.
There are a few "drop-down" boxes for people to choose options from.  I created them with the "Combo box" option.  They work perfectly fine on my laptop (Lenovo T500 windows 7, with all updates up to date.)  I sent the file to another exact same computer and that's when the problem came up.  When you click on the drop-down, the list will quickly appear and then disappear.  Then if you click it again it will stay open so you can choose your option.  However this only happens on "some" computers but not everyone's.  I emailed the exact same form out to other people in my office and they do not have any problems with the form.  There is no need to double click the drop down, it will just open up properly for them.
Has anyone come across this? And if so, is there maybe a setting on these specific laptops that is preventing the "combo box" to not work properly?  I need to use this specific laptop as a "Kiosk" like a "check out" station for users to fill out the form to check out equipment.  I will be running in Reader so people can not make changes to the form.  (both the Acrobat Pro 9 version and the (most up to date) Reader version of the PDF form does the same "double-click" problem)  I need a date drop down and an equipment type drop down.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated !
Thanks !

I've got this kind of problem with a form of mine (designed with LCD) :
- combo boxes with font-color changing event handlers on :enter
- on Acrobat 9 Pro : no problem
- on Reader 8.3 :
      - first click seems to execute the event handler but stops the combo's opening
      - second click does open the combo
Do you have event handlers on combo:enter ?
Could the difference between comps where it works and comps where it doesn't be Acrobat's version ?

  • I cannot open my iphoto application.  The minute I double click on the icon I get the rainbow which spins forever.  I've used Applejack to repair the hd, but even that didn't work.  I've getting into iphoto preferences..can't.  Help!

    I cannot open my iphoto application.  The minute I double click on the icon I get the rainbow which spins forever.  I've used Applejack to repair the hd, but even that didn't work.  I've getting into iphoto preferences..can't.  Help!

    Option 1
    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the command and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild. Choose to Rebuild iPhoto Library Database from automatic backup.
    If that fails:
    Option 2
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one. .

    I am having problems with NI-FBUS configurator.  When I double click the function block to expand the block and view parameters the configurator will hang and eventual issue a "Fieldbus Configuration Application has Stopped Working" error.  I can use dialog and see each parameter with the "getobject" command just fine.  I have uninstalled the package and reinstalled it with no change.  I am operating Windows 7 with configurator version 4.1.0.49152  Comm manager ver 4.1 with the USB interface adaptor.

  • Audio plays for menu but not for the movie??

    Hi-
    I made a dvd with music from an mp3 playing over the menu. It works fantastically. Then when I play the movie, the audio is GONE.
    Note: I CAN get the movie audio to play when I increase the music level of the menu audio, but then when that happens the audio of the menu gets extremely distorted because its too loud. I dont want the level of the menu audio louder than the movie audio anyway. Anyone run into this?

  • Double clicking PS files opens Photoshop but not the file? why?

    Mac OSX 10.4.11 - Adobe Photoshop 8.0
    Since re-installing my system a few months ago double clicking on a photoshop doc will open Photoshop itself but not the file I have clicked on - can't work out why. Can anyone help? Any file wherever its saved the same thing happens.
    Thanks

    including download of the file you need to add.

  • I've set the download settings to always ask where to save a file, and it will do that for some file extensions, but not for others. How can I fix this?

    I've noticed it especially with .pdf files, which always end up on my desktop, even after I double check the download settings under Preferences and then restart Firefox, just in case. Also, when I download .pdf files they will automatically open, but when I download .doc files they do not. I would rather not have downloaded files automatically open, but I can't find how to change that setting either.

    You can check for problems with preferences.
    Rename or delete the prefs.js file and possible numbered prefs-##.js and user.js files to reset all prefs to the default value.

  • The cover art is missing on my playlists songs, but not for songs in the cloud on my iphone 5s

    Ever since I updated to iOS 8, not 8.0.2 (still haven't done that update), the artwork on my music is missing for any songs that are on my phone and in my playlists. My music that is stored in the cloud still has its cover art. All of the songs still play, but I really want the artwork back.

    I am not sure how many of you had to re-os, power off multiple times, or restore. So, try these and hit 'like'  and/or 'This solved my question' or 'This helped me', if it works as explained below.
    What you do on the iTunes is what appears on iPhone. Artwork missing in iPhone is unlikely, if iTunes on PC has them. I am going to be very simple in writing, for everyone to understand as clear as possible. Follow the below steps -
    1. Go to iTunes (On PC). Right Click and select 'Get Info'.
    2. If any error message gets displayed there, try to play it once or locate that song manually, if you have recently changed the location.
    3. Select 'Artwork' tab and ensure the artwork is still there.
    4. (Here is the funny part) - Go to 'Info' tab (the tab between 'Summary' and 'Video')
    5. Ensure for any particular song, the following values are always captured -
    a) Name -
    b) Artist -
    c) Album - (Most of us tend to delete this album data, to avoid seeing duplicate of the name or artist)
        Eg. On my iTunes (PC), a song is categorized -
    a) Name - Bad Day (Ladies and Gents - I did not purposely select this song )
    b) Artist - Daniel Powter
    c) Album - Bad Day
    Try the above simple step and see if it works. If not, reply back to me and mention the exact error message. Can try to help.

  • Unable to update apps since I have closed my Verizon e-mail account.  The old ID address pops up and I can not do updates.  I can not use the old password since the account is closed.  I have a new ID and password on my laptop but not for my I phone.

    My Verizon e-mail account is closed and I can not access the needed updates for my I phone apps.  Even if I knew the password I would have to access the old e-mail account which I can not do.  I have an ID and password for my new laptop but not for my I phone which is under a Verizon service contract....ugh!!!  Thanks

    You don't need to access the email account.

  • Problem in Combo Box Values

    Hi Members,
    I have an combo box in a user designed screen. I have to list the sales order number for an chosen customer in the combo box.
    My problem is that all the values are not listing for that customer.
    Sample coding is as follows:
    strSQL = "select DocNum from ORDR where CardCode='" & objform.Items.Item("4").Specific.String & "'"
            objRS.DoQuery(strSQL)
            While Not objRS.EoF
                objCombobox.ValidValues.Add(objRS.Fields.Item("DocNum").Value, objRS.Fields.Item("DocNum").Value)
                objRS.MoveNext()
            End While
    Please kindly help me in this regard.
    Thanks,
    Venkatesh.R

    Hi Venkatesh,
    Please insert a breakpoint in this line
    objRS.DoQuery(strSQL)
    Then code the value of the strSQL variable and execute it on the SQL Server Management Studio. I'm guessing it returns no records, so there will be no values in the ComboBox.

  • How do I prevent "The user profile service service failed the log on" error messages?

    I work for an organization with approximately 60 staff members across ~80 Windows 7 Professional PCs. Users log in with Active Directory accounts.
    Approximately once per month, a random user will get an error message while attempting to log into their machine that says "The user profile service service failed the log on."  The solution to resolve this issue is here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947215?ppud=4&wa=wsignin1.0.
    The problem is that I want to PREVENT this issue from happening, as it is incredibly inconvenient for the user. I had one staff member board a 5-hour plane trip expecting to do work, and once she got in the air she logged in and
    received the error message and was unable to use her computer for the trip. I've had others locked out of their computer with deadlines to get things done, while I am at home off the clock. Editing the registry is not an easy fix, and so it's not something
    I can just post instructions for in a knowledgebase article.
    Does anyone know how to prevent this issue from occurring? I believe that it has something to do with a network-based startup script, or a service trying to connect to our file server, or the computer trying to connect to our ad server. All of these
    are blocked by firewalls (unless the user is off-site), and I suspect that the services may be timing out, causing the user profile service service failed the logon error message, but I can't seem to eliminate it, after nearly a year of trying.
    90% of the time this problem occurs when the user is off-site, but it has happened while the user is in the office too. Once the user gets this error message, the only way to resolve the problem is to log into their computer as a localadministrator account
    and perform the method #1 fix in the knowledgebase article.
    Thanks

  • Access RemoteApp error: The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in

    I have couple of users in MYAPPS group that is a part of Collection.
    Only me (domain admin) and other domain member user can access the app from RDWEB.
    When an other domain admin and an another domain user try to access the app (from different machines) they get:
    "Access RemoteApp error: The User Profile Service service failed the sign-in"
    RDS is Server 2012 R2 clients W7, W8.
    I found all kind of troubleshooting for Vista and W7 non RDS scenario.
    What it could be? A bit confusing... one admin Yes another no. The same for regular domain member
    1. users can login to RD Web (https:../rdweb) . The published app appears
    2. When clicking on the app icon the screen below appears
    "When you hit a wrong note it's the next note that makes it good or bad". Miles Davis

    Checked Event. There were errors indicating that default profile files cannot be copied to user_name profile.
    One of them:
    Windows cannot copy file
    \\?\C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group3\08 - Power Options.lnk to location
    \\?\C:\Users\blue\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX\Group3\08 - Power Options.lnk. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.
     DETAIL - The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.
    After doing more research I found a suggestion that actually fixed the problem instantly:
    -- We also see this problem. You should try to uninstall KB2919355 --

    Here is the discussion:

    I did check KB2919355. It looks like pretty important...
    All future security and nonsecurity updates for W8.1 and 2012 R2 require this update to be installed...
    So how to deal with this thing?
    May be somebody from Microsoft will see this post and can suggest other workaround instead of removing the important patch.
    Thanks Jay for pushing me to check Event :)

    hello
    The problem appeared two days ago is that I can't open my mail app. everything was fine and functional. Now I double click on the icon and it does not respond. it receives mail and I can see push notifications on the mail icon but when  I try to open it is no use. OS Y 10.10.2 (14C1514)

    Please follow these directions to delete the Mail "sandbox" folder.
    Back up all data.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it:
    ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.mail
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select
              Services ▹ Reveal
    from the contextual menu.* A Finder window should open with a folder named "com.apple.mail" selected. If it does, move the selected folder—not just its contents—to the Desktop. Leave the Finder window open for now.
    Restart the computer. Launch Mail and test. If the problem is resolved, you may have to recreate some of your Mail settings. Any custom stationery that you created may be lost. Ask for instructions if you want to preserve that data. You can then delete the folder you moved and close the Finder window.
    Caution: If you change any of the contents of the sandbox, but leave the folder itself in place, Mail may crash or not launch at all. Deleting the whole sandbox will cause it to be rebuilt automatically.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination  command-C. In the Finder, select
              Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar and paste into the box that opens by pressing command-V. You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.
