FILEOPEN INITIALIZATION FAILURE(1):

Good evening,

I get this error message at the opening of Adobe Reader 7 FILEOPEN INITIALIZATION FAILURE(1):
Uninstalled the application, but nothing seemed to solve the issue
Tried to tick and untick security options too....
Search for any info on Adobe site, but nothing came up with a fix, not to mention Google...
Would anyone have any information to turn off or fix this annoying message?
Regards
Trevor M

Hi

This looks like a permission issue.

Run regedit and search for FileOpen under HKEY Local Machine, there should be a key which you need to check permissions (right click) and apply full access perms for your user account to.

Thanks captainreiss.. It fixed the problem
However do you have an explanation as to why the problem was there in the first place?

Not sure, cannot say I can reproduce it. Usually strange permissions can happen when a local admin installs and the admin account is subsequently deleted.

As you have uninstalled and reinstalled I can only assume as you had only read access that the keys were not renewed by you but result from a previous installation with different credentials...

Did you notice any strange permissions on the key for full access?

all the best

I am posting this in case someone runs into the second version of that error and runs across this post

If the error message is Fileopen Initialization Failure(2)..notice the 2 instead of the 1.  You need to delete any instance of fOpen32.api.  It would be in the program files\adobe\ version of adobe you have\plugin directory.  You can also just search for it.

cyberbard fix worked for me even for fileopen initialization failure (1) with Reader 11 under Win10. Delete did the job. Thanks!
