Adobe Acrobat DC "Out of Memory"

We have performed fresh installs of Windows 10 on user's computers that were previously running Windows 7.

We have also loaded and activated Adobe Acrobat DC on these computers.

Acrobat DC is claiming it is out of memory even though every system has more than 50% available when this warning occurs. Most only open 3 pdfs and this happens and continually annoys them.

What can be done to fix this issue?

We have no problems with Acrobat XI (not DC) on 10, several installations. Did you already update your DC version? DC came out long before win10, maybe it needs updates to function properly.

I have Adobe Acrobat DC running here on my Windows 10 Pro 64-bit machine (just now Version 1607). It is running fine and was running fine.

1. Try a complete uninstall / reinstall of Adobe DC.
2. Run SFC /SCANNOW to check for Windows errors.
3. Look for legacy or conflicting software.

Let us know. Upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 can be problematic.

Take one of the computers, go to the Media Creation Link

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 

Click on Upgrade to Windows 10 (even though running Windows 10), allow drivers to upgrade and then choose the options to Keep Data and Keep Applications.

Allow Windows 10 to reinstall, all will be kept, and then let us know.

Also, big update to Adobe Acrobat DC just now (and Reader as well). I am now on Windows 10 1607 Build 14393 and I do not know if that caused or is related to the Adobe update, but it did come after the Windows update.
