Adobe Acrobat Writer does not recognize Outlook as my default email program

I am running windows 7 pro, with office 2010.  I also have acrobat writer pro full version.

I have set outlook as my default program.  

But every time in acrobat when I go to File -> attach to email... I get the following error message:
"Either there is no default mail client or the current mail client cannot fulfill the messaging request.  Please run Microsoft Outlook and set it as the default mail client."

I have set my outlook as the default client, but I still get that error.

Any assistance to point me in the right direction?  

I even ran the repair option in outlook and rebooted and it's still not recognizing it.


Thanks...

Adobe Version 9 and below are not going to work with Office 2010, you will need to upgrade to version 10 at a minimum.

I ran into this issue before with Acrobat Standard 9 and Office 2010, once upgraded to version 10 it was able to work and have the adobe toolbars installed and working.

It sucks but there is no way around this.

Check that it's set in these 3 locations,

1) Set as default within Outlook,

On the Tools menu in Office Outlook, click Options, and then click the Other tab
Under General, select the Make Outlook the default program for E-mail, Contacts, and Calendar check box

2) Set as default from the Internet Explorer,

Start Internet Explorer
On the View menu, click Internet Options
Click the Programs tab
In the Mail list, click Microsoft Office Outlook
Click OK

3) Set as default from Control Panel,

Navigate to Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Default Programs
Click on the outlook icon on the left hand side
Set as default

I've already tried and done those three steps.  In step #2 though, I don't have an option for "mail list".  So maybe that's where my problem lies, but again, in hte IE-> internet options-> programs tab, I don't have an option for mail list.

When you choose File/Send/Page by Email in Internet Explorer, does Outlook pop a new email?

yes,  when trying that in IE, it does open up a new email screen.

When doing the same thing in acrobat, it does not, it gives me that error message.

So I guess there's no more suggestions?

I tried calling Adobe, but they don't support this version anymore, only version 10 and 11.

Thanks everyone for your input, and TechOps07, I thought that was the problem, but thanks for clarifying that.

anytime my friend. It took me a while to figure it out myself when I came across this issue. Apparently Adobe wants to make money and force the upgrade.

of course, I think most companies work like that. :(
