Sharpdesk Copier Scanning Issue

We have a Sharp Copier AR-M355N and are using Sharpdesk 3.2 as scanning sw.  I upgraded a user to Adobe Reader 9 and it seems incompatible with 3.2.  You can open the scanned attachment in an email, but cannot open it in the Sharpdesk folder.  

I tried upgrading the sw, but that didn't work and when I uninstalled and reinstalled it, it didn't work either.  Instead of receiving the file and not being able to open it, I now get a network error, even though I doublechecked and the ip address is correct.  We have had this problem befbefore (nw error), have had to call in the consultants and they fix it; however, I am thinking that it may just be some easy setting or fix.  Yet, even when I delete the user going via the web and add them back, it still does not work.  I also duplicated this problem on my machine (and not can't receive scanned pdf files to my desktop either).  Users are using Windows XP on their Desktops.

Acrobat has been known to cause issues with Sharpdesk, albeit with much older versions.  Is your scan folder a network share or local profile folder?

It scans to a local folder on our desktop, the sharpdesk folder.

We had similar problems some time back.
I wound up abandoning Adobe Reader altogether and installing the Foxit free PDF reader.

Foxit PDF Reader

It's smaller, opens instantly and works great.

After I did a complete uninstall of Adobe Reader on each XP workstation our particular problems went away.

Actually, I'm not sure the problem is with the reader as the scanned document never arrives to the Sharpdesk folder.  I get an error on the Copier, "Network Error (CE-02).  Consult your key operator or system administrator."

Does the XP Event Viewer show any issues with "System" or "Application" ?

No.  and I triplechecked that I had the correct IP address and even deleted my scan profile via their web interface and added it back and still no luck.

You might try uninstalling Adobe and installing Foxit on one workstation just to see what happens.

I prefer to use Revo Uninstaller as even the free version cleans up a LOT of the leftover garbage that the standard uninstall app misses.
The Pro version has a 30 free trial and removes even more junk.
They even have a portable version for USB drives.

Reboot after the uninstall.

No, completely uninstalled both Adobe Reader and Sharpdesk, then reinstalled Sharpdesk and still getting the error on the Copier, "Network Error (CE-02).  Consult your key operator or system administrator."  I don't think that has something to do with the reader, maybe some setting in Sharpdesk.

That what it sounds like, but the timing of the Reader update coinciding with the problem showing up is suspect.
Reader may have changed some default paths in SharpDesk.

Have you tried to research the network error number [CE-02] ?

Also, I assume that there are no other versions of Acrobat installed.
There are known potential issues.  Acrobat9

Yes tried googling error [CE-02] with no luck.  Tried going to the Sharp Copier site with no luck either.

:-/

Can you do a System Restore from prior to the Reader update?

System Restores did not used to work, but remembered that I did a Windows Update all the way to SP3.  Tried a restore again, it did work, AND it fixed the Sharpdesk problem.  Thanks.
