Users cannot combine files to make PDF in windows explorer

Currently when users select multiple files and right-click and choose combine files in PDF they receive a pop-up message that states "Missing PDFMaker files. Do you want to run the installer in repair mode?" I've came across this message before with another company, but want to reach out to the experts. Thanks, Alpha

Acrobat 8 is old and barely worked in Vista let alone Windows 7.  I have done file combines (and use the feature very frequently) and it works fine in Acrobat 9, 10, and 11. The problem is PDF Maker and keeping it compatible with newer versions of Office and Windows.

I suggest you upgrade Acrobat because (a) Version 8 is inherently insecure and will never be fixed (out of suppot) and (b) new versions of Adobe Acrobat combines files just fine.

You can try repairing Adobe and ensuring it is completely patched, but that may not fix the problem.

@alphaphaedrus - Thanks very much. I was happy to help you with this. Adobe V11 is a very nice upgrade, combines files nicely, and PDF Maker works fine. I am sure you and your users will like it.
