In the last couple of days Acrobat Standard 9.5.5 (not Reader) on a fully patched 2008 R2 RDS server has started crashing for users. Always faulting modules dhcpcsvc6.DLL and dhcpcsvc.DLL. What is interesting is that it is only affecting some users, and not all.

I have seen a few other people try and fix this with a repair on Acrobat. I tried that last night and not getting more users with errors that didn't have crashes before.

Wondering if anyone has seen this or have any thoughts on fixing it. About to roll to a backup from a month ago when I know this was not an issue. Rather not do that and rather not upgrade Acrobat.

I use Adobe acrobat XI Pro version 11.0.22 extensively

Have vba code that edits (E) acrobat files adding headers and footers and shrinking file sizes

I understand that Adobe will stop supporting this software on October and they recommend an upgrade

Any advice on the upgrade - how will it affect my code applications?

So I have a big pdf file and I want to split it by everytime a name changes (its performance reports so I want each person's file to be saved by itself) to maybe add a blank page so I can merge them by hand or if it would do it for me that would be great, heres the code I used to extract the pages, is there anything I can add to it that would make it find the files and save them by the persons name?
Thanks!

// Iterates over all pages and find a given strign and extracts all pages on which that string is found to a new file

var pageArray = [];

var stringToSearchFor = "ID"
var stringToSearchFor = "Name"


for (var p = 0; p < this.numpages; p++) {
//iterate over all words ;

for (var n = 0; n < this.getpagenumwords(p); n++) {
if(this.getpageNthWord(p.n) ==stringToSearchFor) {
pagearray.push(p);
break;
}
}
}  

if(pagearray.length > 0) {
// extract all pages that contain the string into a new document
var d = app.newdoc();//this will add a blank page-we need to remove this when we are done
for(var n = 0; n <pagearray.lenght; n++) {
d.insertpages ( {
nPage: d.numpages-1,
cPath: this.path,
nStart: pagearray[n],
nEnd: pagearray[n],
} ) ;
}

// remove the first page
d.deletepages(0);

This is  ASP.NET C# . The task is to covert HTML output to pdf and give user the choise  - to read or save

Hi,

  Can you recommend the oldest version of Adobe Acrobat  that will run on Windows 10?
 No, I am NOT looking for any other PDF software. I had an older machine that I upgraded to windows 10 and Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 worked great until the last windows upgrade and then it was suddently no longer compatible with windows 10. I must have an adobe product that will allow me to password protect and merge pdf documents. Can ANYONE help?  The Adobe Acrobat DC Pro will certainly do the trick but it is really expensive.
I am looking for an older version that is more affordable and runs on Windows 10.

Thanks for your help.

Hi, I have an application that generates a .PDF report online and provides a preview in a custom pop up window.
For some users, randomly the preview DOES NOT show the buttons on the document black header. They are unable to print or dowload the report from the preview.

I am a 100% sure that this is not application code related issue. It has to do something with the browser setting probably or something else.

Please advise on how to resolve this error to enable print/download functionalities always from the .PDF previewer.

When users logon, they see a desktop tray icon & or dialog regarding the subject. I have seen those before. But, I don't remember exactly the text or what it looks like.

But, the message doesn't let the user apply the update because they need to be admin.

As admin on their computer, I run Acrobat > Help > Check for updates. It then says Update Is Available. So, I choose Download and Install.

Instead, is there an offline download I can use to apply the update remotely? Or, is it not that simple?

EDIT:
I may be able to use...

Acrobat for Windows: http://supportdownloads.adobe.com/product.jsp?product=1&platform=Windows
Adobe Reader for Windows: http://supportdownloads.adobe.com/product.jsp?product=10&platform=Windows

But, which do I choose? MUI, MUI X, (Continuous Track), (Acrobat 2017 Track)???

I work with a state organization that deals with several PDF files a day(40-60). I am trying to find out if there is a way to add one to two scripts to the batch process we currently use  that would create a report containing how many files, total number of pages for those files, and possibly how many pages per file. The number of pages in these files range from 10 to 70 and occasionally as large as 200+. The process will be run with XI but would hopefully be able to also run on IX since it is the back up. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

We are wanting to start using Adobe Forms on our intranet with the ability to fill in the form and submit to a file store.

Any ideas?

HI, Good Day,

I have a very strange problem with one of my clients. we have a server 2012 R2 Domain with 2 TS Hosts. printers are installed on a server 2012 R2 printserver and via GPO pushed to the TS Hosts when users login. GPO is set to item level targetting to make sure only the correct users get that printer. all worked reasonably well, but since a few days i have users complaining the default printer is changing while they are logged in and working. GPO's are not set enforced. All printers are still available also the one which used to be default. also this printer can be set as default manually and it will print.  Users can also logoff and logon again and the correct default printer will be set.

I already updated the server with the latest windows updates and did several reboots. Removed all printers for the users which have the problem, but nothing helps.

(just some background info)
Earlier we had a lot of problems when setting up the kyocera multi functionals as GPO pushed machines since adobe acrobat stopped responding at different users when trying to print pdf files. manually remove the users pushed printers and clean the registry solved the problem for that user for a while, but next few days an other user would come with the same problem. We tried all versions of kyocera drivers in discussion with kyocera to solve this problem. at the end we found a working solution with the kyocera universal pcl driver (a4 models) and foxit reader instead of adobe

When we go to print to PDF a word document nearly everything prints fine.
There is a area of the right side of the page that has some border coloring that isn't following the pdf. I believe its shading.

We highlight a couple of values with green but they don't come through as shaded when we convert the word document to a PDF.
I have gone through and tried to adjust acrobat and word settings. But the document conversion still doesn't appear to be working.

Hi All!  Our HR department is having issues opening the i9 document from this website http://www.mysolutionsatwork.com/new-i-9-form-available/ 

When I click on the link to open the PDF, it tells me to Please Wait....and if it does not open we are using an outdated version.  However, we have the updated version of DC reader.  I am able to open all other PDF documents except the i9.  I have also downloaded this file and saved it to my computer and it will open, but quickly crash stating that it stopped working.

Any ideas?

We seem to be having a strange issue that we have been noticed on users with Windows 10 machines using Adobe Acrobat DC where when a PDF that is located on a network drive is open for an extended period of time the page will go blank requiring it to be closed and re-opened. We have all of the latest Acrobat updates installed and the issue seems to persist, anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this?

I have an interactive form that I have created for collecting information for the issuance of a local business license. I have about 50 questions in a table object. Column 1 contains a question number ID. Column 2 contains a YES/NO question, Column 3 and 4 each contain a checkbox. My plan is to have the user select the checkbox in Column 3 if the answer to the question is yes or select the checkbox in Column 4 if the answer to the question is no. But. . . I need the selection to be mutually exclusive.

I have tried to put a RadioButton in each cell and "Wrap" in a new button group but It appears that Adobe LiveCycle 2 will not allow for the placement of a RadioButton  group in a single table cell.

Does anyone know of a solution?

Hi Guys,

i am creating a PDF form and want to insert a calendar field. when googling for a solution there are many different answers. some people say use java script but without clear instructions.
some people say use 3rd part tools but most of which are only on a trial basis.
Some users say that the field is available within adobe but i cant find the field.

does adobe acrobat 9 have the ability to do this itself or do you need to use JavaScript. if i do need to use javascript can you please provide a clear guide on how to do this.

Hi Guys,

is there a way i can create a PDF in Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard i can put a drop down field in the PDF but once a selection is made the document then shows or doesn't show another box?

so for example the question could be site: and the answer you could select on the dropdown would be 'London'
at that stage London window will appear with information that is london specific.

hope that makes sense,

Is there anyway to start a saved "Action" in Acrobat Xi from VBA?

In acrobat 9.0  I was able to create a batch process and using send keys (not really happy using sendkeys, but it was the only way I could get this to work),  to kick off a Batch Process.

I can't seem to recreate this in Acrobat 10 and up.  Send keys no longer works as the Tools have no hot keys.

Can I use the SDK to call a previously saved action?

I've created a very basic fillable pdf form out of an excel sheet.  I am having trouble with two different columns of fields. Other columns of fields with the exact same properties do not have these problems.  Here is the problem:

When I test the form, in either Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro or Adobe Reader, I try to delete numbers from the fields after I enter them (to see if ctrl+z can be used to backup a step). I can delete information from some of the fields this way, but others will not delete. If I try to delete using Edit-->Undo, it lets me click edit/undo, but the information is still in the field.  When I go back to the field and click on it, the data disappears. When I click somewhere else in the form, that same data reappears.  I've searched online and the only similar problem seems to be data that is not shown in a field until clicked. Mine is sort of opposite. "Deleted" data shows in a field until you click it.

Thanks for your help.

I am having an issue where the zoom settings are not being applied in Acrobat. I want all PDFs to be opened to single page view, Zoom: 100%. I have found 2 setting areas where this can be applied. Preferences: Page Display: Default Layout and Zoom. Also Preferences: Accessibility: Override Page Display. Both areas have been set to single page 100% zoom, but documents are still opening at a Fit Width setting(usually like 190% zoom).

Today i re-created my Roaming/Local area of my profile to wipe out the adobe folder, and the 100% zoom setting worked for a few existing documents, but when creating a new PDF from Excel, all documents opened at Fit Width zoom again.

Any registry keys this may be linked to? Any other settings i may be missing?

Thanks!
