Acrobat Pro X PDF previewing not working in Windows 7 64-bit

Greetings, all,
The organization I work for recently purchased a volume license for Acrobat Pro X.  We uninstalled Adobe Reader from all of our machines and installed Acrobat Pro X on them.  After the move, the PDF preview handler stopped working.  People commonly link to the URL below, but it has not worked for us.  It appears it only works for the PDF preview handler packaged with Adobe Reader, not the one packaged with Acrobat Pro.
Users are unable to preview PDFs in Windows Explorer and Microsoft Office Outlook 2007.  When attempting to preview in Windows Explorer, the following appears:
   This file can't be previewed.
What can we do to get the preview handler working in Windows Explorer (Windows 7 64-bit) and Office Outlook 2007?
Thanks in advance!

 OK. Then do you mean the thumbnails in Windows Explorer? I don't have a solution for that, but there have been several posts about the issue.
Well, thumbnails in Explorer don't work either, but we're not concerned about it.  The preview pane is what we're worried about.  There is a button in the top-right that turns the pane on.  Previewing in Outlook does not work either.

  • Acrobat Pro 11 - Output Preview not working

    This issue came up again on my Macpro. Although it's ok on my MBP. When try to analyze a PDF in "Output Preview" a few things aren't working for me. The "Total Area Coverage" warning will not display on screen. Also when I hover the cursur over the PDF I am no longer see percentages under the ink color Preview > Separations. Does anyone know of a quick fix so I don't have to keep going back to an oldere version of Acrobat?
    Thanks for your help.

    I think I'd uninstall Acrobat (there should be an Uninstaller in your Acrobat folder inside the Applications folder). Then reinstall the application.

    Hi ferdinando,
    Was Acrobat working fine for you before?
    Which OS are you using?
    Try repairing Acrobat from the Control panel> Programs and check.
    Are you getting the error: "Error 2503 called RunScript when not marked in progress"
    This is apparently a Windows issue (see -called-runscript-when-not-marked-in/76e72d98-cbef-432f-8f6f-40417d139bc1

  • PDF previewer not working in Outlook

    I have recently updated to Adobe reader 11.0.10, I can now open the documents I was not able to open, but the previewer in Outlook stopped working. The error I get is that the doc is not supported by my currect reader and that I have to upgrade to the latest
    version. I have done everything that people suggest on the web - trust center settings, etc., but I have not been successful. Has anyone encountered the same issue and do we have a solution?
    Any help is greatly appreciated
    My details: Win 7 Ent / 32 bit / Office 2010 / Adobe reader 11.0.10

    Have you checked if the PDF Preview Handler is available and shows as enabled in File > Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > Attachment Handling > Attachment and Document Previewers?
    Which format of file are you previewing in Outlook? Please first make sure the format is supported by Adobe reader. You can verify this by consulting the Adobe Reader support. If the file type is supported by Adobe Reader, please open Control Panel,
    find and click Default Programs >
    Associate a file type or protocol with a program, then locate the file format and make sure
    Adobe Reader is set as the default program for the file type.
    If it's not a PDF document that you want to preview, we can also try to preview a PDF attachment to see if it works fine. If this issue continues when previewing a PDF attachment in Outlook, I'd recommend we uninstall and then reinstall the Adobe reader
    to see the result.
    Please let me know the result.

  • PDF Preview not working in Workspace

    Attempts to execute the PDF Preview command in Workspace result in 'PDF has not been configured for this web server.'
    The Hyperion S9 BI+ 9.3 Financial Reporting Print Server service was configured to use AFPL Ghostscript 8.51 and was started prior to attempting the command.
    Ghostscript itself is installed and tested working.
    Checked Workspace's MIME types library and found '.pdf' already mapped to 'application/pdf'.
    Read the installation and configuration guides and found no clues as to what may be preventing the print server from generating the PDF preview.
    Went through the log files under folder %HYPERION_HOME%\BIPlus\logs, %HYPERION_HOME%\logs\BIPlus, and MS IIS's, but found nothing.
    Any ideas on diagnosing and troubleshooting this issue?

    I believe the supported version for ghost script is 7.0.6; I had the same problem and after installing the lower version it worked like a charm.
    If you cant find the older version let me know, I'll email it to you or place it in my website.

  • Macbook pro (early 2008): Trackpad not working under Windows XP

    My Trackpad worked regularly under Windows (Bootcamp) and Mac OSx until some months ago my Motherboard had to be exchanged because of a fault function of the graphics card. When I started Macintosh after the Macbook pro was repaired the Trackpad worked regularly, but under windows the mouse didn't react to moving the finger or clicking. I reinstalled the drivers, but this didn't fix the problem.
    What shall i do now? Thank you for any advices.

    since my mac is year and two months old (funny, two months and you are screwed).
    Not if you had of purchased Apple Care.  You would have been covered for 3 years.
    What I would like to say to the Apple:
    This is not the place as Apple does not come to these forums. 
    These are user-to-user forums where everyday folk post "technical" questions and offer answers to each other voluntarily.  No one here works for Apple nor does Apple get involved in responding.  Not even sure if they "lurk."

  • Acrobat Pro 7.0 does not install on Windows 7, how can I get a version that does?

    I recently downloaded and tried installing the non-activation version of Adobe Acrobat Pro 7.0 on my Windows 7 PC.  After researching the installation error I read some posts that Acrobat 7.0 does not install on Windows 7.  What are my options?

    AA 7 will install, but it will not run very cleanly. A lot of things require workarounds. However, it is strongly recommended that you upgrade to AA XI for use on Win7 or Win8. AA 7 is not fully compatible and playing with workarounds is not a great use model. Looks like the price just came down also. You will have to purchase the full version. The upgrade version requires at least AA 9.

  • 32-bit Oracle ODBC Driver does not work under Windows 64-bit

    We have both Oracle Server 64-bit ( and Oracle Client 32-bit ( installed on the same Windows 2003 64-bit server.
    We can create and test 64-bit Oracle ODBC System DSN using 64-bit ODBC Administrator.
    We can also create a 32-bit Oracle ODBC System DSN using 32-bit ODBC Administrator.
    However, the "test connection" does not work:
    Unable to connect
    Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 998 (Oracle in OraClient10g_home32)
    We need the 32-bit driver due to 32-bit applications acessing the local 64-bit Oracle server.
    How should we accomplish this?

    I applied path to Oracle Client 32-bit and now the error is different.
    This error message appears 3 times before configuring, creating or testing a System DNS:
    "An unsupported operation was attempted."
    I just click OK 3 times and then can configure, create or test the DSN.
    However the 32-bit application still cannot access Oracle...

  • [Acrobat 8.x] PDF Printer not working

    Hi there,
    I just migrated from Windows XP SP3 to Windows 7. After having installed Acrobat (as part of CS3), I quickly came across the following nasty problem. The PDF Printer worked about once. After that, it became defunct. When starting a print job with PDF Printer, the entire application hangs. For some reason, there is considerable hard drive activity after that, but the application that has issued the print command does not recover (I waited for several minutes).
    I have tried the following solution:
    (1) Auto-Update updated my Acrobat version to 8.1.3
    (2) "Repair Acrobat Installation" from Acrobat Help Menu
    (3) Manually reinstalled PDF Printer
    (4) Removed all PDF Ports and recovered via "Repair Acrobat Installation"
    => no effect, the problem remains.
    I would be very greatful for any suggestions. This problem is driving me nuts! The PDF printer is an important component that just has to work.

    Thanks for the input!
    The upgrade to 8.1.6 did solve the problem. Acrobat still works poorly, but at least the PDF Maker works quite fine.
    Nevertheless, it's really too bad that Adobe requires you to purchase a full (and considerably expensive) upgrade for Win7 support. Adobe 8 is not that old so that it would require updating.

  • CS4 & Acrobat Pro Extended 9 updates not working.

    I just purchased a new HP Laptop running Win 8.1 64bit. After installing CS4 & Acrobat 9 I cannot get the Adobe Update manger to work. It either fails (crashes) or tells me there are no updates available. I tried installing a new version of update mgr but it fails to install. I have tried downloading 9.5.5 update for Windows but it fails also telling me I do not have that version on my system. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the original software, all to no avail. Any suggestions would be appreciated. BTW I also have a new Dell 8.1 64bit running the same software and it updated fine. ????

    You have more of a task than you might wish for.
    Adobe Acrobat 9.5.5 Pro, Pro Extended, and Standard update - All languages
    This update requires that Adobe Acrobat 9.5.3 or 9.5.4 is installed on your system
    Adobe Acrobat 9.5.3 Pro, Pro Extended, and Standard update - All languages
    This update requires that Adobe Acrobat 9.5.2 is installed on your system

  • Creative Cloud PDF preview not working correctly

    More than 50% of the time, when we upload a PDF to our Creative Cloud the preview image is distorted to a square regardless of the actual proportions. The left and right arrows are also missing so you cannot preview multiple pages in a file. Sometimes it works but most the time it doesn't. Usually we have to upload again and then everything is fine.
    Even though the upload doesn't preview correctly or allow you to preview multiple pages the PDF download is fine.

    I am having the same problem, it's been like that for weeks. I've tried uploading an inDesign file and it only shows the first page, squeezed with funky font issues. I've tried different browsers with no luck.

  • DVD Studio Pro 1.5 Previewing Not Working

    Hello! I don't know if anyone can help me with such an old application, but I got it for free so I'm trying to make it work.
    Anyway, I used to use DVD Studio Pro 1.5 on my Titanium PowerBook, and it worked fine then, but I think that ever since I put it on my MacBook Pro (Santa Rosa, non-unibody) with OS 10.6, it seems to have some issues. I am able to build a DVD menu, but for some reason, I can't use the Preview button. Here's a link to a screenshot with the problem:
    Hopefully someone can help with this. It's really bothering me that I can't use DVD Studio Pro. I love it, and I wish it would work. I think it's just probably too old for my MacBook Pro and Snow Leopard, but it's worth asking around. Thanks so much for looking!

    Absolutely what StudioX said - this is because you are now using Intel processors, and the code for DVDSP1.5 runs on Power PC chips.
    You either need to keep that titanium running, or upgrade to a later version of DVDSP.
    FWIW I have a copy of 1.5 running on an old G4 Quicksilver desktop. I have no reason to use it at all... it was (is) buggy in places and uses obscure methods, but I love it, so I keep it

  • Video in pdf does not work in Windows

    I created a interactive pdf in InDesign CS6. I tried embedded a flv., a mp4 and .mov into the file. Looks great on my mac. When I send it to a colleague who has all the latest software in windows, she can not view the video. She gets an error message -- she needs a different version of flash player.
    Thank you for your suggestions.

    She has to do what the message tells her, and install the version of Flash Player required by the Acrobat Family. There's a link in the message itself, just follow the prompt.
