Preferred Solution: Solved: Damaged files that cannot be repaired in Adobe - Adobe Acrobat Windows

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Adobe Acrobat 4.0 was on my computer when I bought it. I have Windows ME. Recently I downloaded a free copy of the Acrobat Reader 6.0 but Adobe Acrobat is not free. Is Reader a part of Adobe Acrobat? Should I buy an updated version Adobe Acrobat and if so, what would be the advantage of doing so
 

A:What is the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader

Adobe Acrobat is the full version which allows you to create and edit pdf files. Reader is free and is just the viewer that allows you to read pdf documents someone else has created. If you still have the full version of 4.0 it should still work fine for creating simple pdf documents. The advantage of upgrading is that 4.0 is no longer supported by Adobe and the more recent versions (they're up to 7 now) have many more features. You should keep your version of the Reader current because older versions of the Reader may not be able to open documents created with the newer versions of Acrobat. But if you don't use Acrobat very much for creating and editing (and it sounds like you don't), I don't see any need to purchase an upgrade. Hope that all made sense.

SITUATION
I created a pdf. file from a document that had 'fill-in forms'. I used Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0. to create the PDF file.

I then I burned the pdf. file on to a CD.

When I used my Adobe Reader 9.0 to open the PDF file, I could fill-in the forms, but not save them. I received a message that said I could not save the information, only print it unless I enabled the ‘local save capability’ in the original pdf. file.

I will be selling the CDs and need the buyer to be able to fill-in the forms, and then save the document on the CD or the buyer’s computer.

QUESTIONS
1. How do I enable the ‘local save capability’ on Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0, saving the document with the information typed into the fill-in forms?

2. How can I write protect the pdf. file so no one can edit it (except for the fill-in fields) nor duplicate the disk?

3. Has anyone bought a software product from www.SoftCaptain.com and if yes, what was your experience with the software product company?

 

A:Adobe Acrobat Professional & Adobe Reader

I can't answer all of your questions, but data on a CD is read only, you won't be able to save the edited file on that CD.
It can only be saved on the hard drive & then burned to CD again, if necessary.

Later when I tried to open the file from the saved location it never loaded adobe acrobat, neither it opened any file. I tried to open other PDF files to check if the downloaded file was corrupted. I couldn't open any PDF files. Now Acrobate.exe does not even load.

Hi,
Thanks for any help.
I have a CD that has video and photo images, catalog of products, etc.
I can view all except the photos. They are PDF files. I locate the image folder, and open it and all the image files are there. I clic one of the images and Adobe Acroabt opens up but the page remains blank, no image. There is a small PDF logo beside each image, so I know they are PDF. Someone suggested that Acrobat can't open all PDF files. I'm not sure if this is correct. My desktop has Acrobat 5.0 but when the clicked image opens Adobe, I'm seeing a version 2.1. He suggested photo shop which I can not afford, a price of over $200 just to view images of a companies products. If you have any suggestions on how to view these PDF images, it will be appreciated.

How come I can open some pdf files with Acrobat Reader and search for words, or select words or sentences but other files do not allow this? In the former case, when I pass the cursor over the text I get the typical cursor sign that you see when select a text (a small verticle line with a cross line top and bottom), in the latter case a + sign. I checked in the security settings for the file and in both cases there is no restriction for searching or copying.
 

A:problem with Adobe Acrobat Reader and pdf files

Hi witherm , and welcome to TSG.

It is possible that in the first case, the actual text information is encoded into the PDF file. This this type of PDF file might be created if someone took an MS-Word document file and converted it directly to a PDF file.

In the second case, your PDF file may just be a picture of page of text or it may be made up of many short straight and curved lines that look like text to the human eye. In either type, there is no actual text data to select or copy.

I'm only taking a guess here, but since you mentioned your ability to create pdf's, I'm assuming you have the full version and your DL'ed v.6 is only a reader version. If that's the case, maybe the full version (5) defaults over v.6 (since it sounds like you might have both installed).

Have you tried:
Right Click > "Open With..." then browse for Acrobat Reader?

If that doesn't work, try:
go to Explorer > Tools > Folder Options and click on the "File Types" tab.

Next, scroll down the list until you find the file type.

If no program is associated with the file, (the "Change" button will be greyed out" then click "Advanced".

In the "Actions" window, you should see "open" - highlight this and click "Edit".

Next you will see a box marked "Application used to perform action" - Click "Browse" and locate Acrobat Reader (default location is "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"

Once you have selected the program to open the file with, click "OK. The file type is now associated with that program, and should open as required.

Please post if this does or doesn't address your problem.

However, I can still print to PDF using the distiller via print option. Also if I go into, for example, MS Excel, I still have the option for the PDF toolbar.

Hi -

Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Pro is not listed in the Windows 7 Compatibility Center -

Windows 7 compatible printer drivers are needed. Given that Adobe now sells Acrobat 9, I don't believe Windows 7 print drivers for Acrobat v7.0 will be forthcoming.

"This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package."

I tried to install an newer version in hopes to over ride the old, but that wouldn't let me since the older version could not be removed. The installation was canceled.

My question is HUH? It worked before, but now it won't do anything. I sometimes have to control+Alt+delete to get out of it. This came pre-installed on my computer. I have no idea on what to do from here. I'm hoping someone here might be able to help me. Thanks for stopping by!

I found it necessary to remove Acobat Reader in order to install an update (which would not install otherwise). As part of the manual removal I was to remove three files at the cmd level. The will not remove at any level. All I get is "Access denied". I am doing this with administrator privileges. How do I get these three files removed? they are .dll in the ActiveX directory (Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat/ActiveX).

I have recently installed Adobe Acrobat Professional on my new computer. There is no Adobe Printer shown on the printer box.

My old computer has it but it has been so many years since I created it that I cannot remember how to do it. A google search was not helpful and the Adobe help is of no value.

Anyone remember how to do this?

Thanks

Anytime I try to open something, I get the message "There is a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader. Please exit Adobe Acrobat/Reader and try again." I used to be able to open these files and then all at once I would get this message. Anyone that knows how to fix this, please help! Thanks!

When I was working on my computer yesterday, a little window popped up and asked if I wanted the latest update of Adobe (I am assuming now it was Acrobat 5.0). I clicked okay, and since that point (and I know I probably did something wrong) I cannot open any programs except Outlook and Internet Explorer. For instance, if I try to open MediaMonkey, the Adobe Acrobat 5.0 window pops up on my screen, it tries to open the program, and then gives me an error message like the one I listed below.
I tried to dump Acrobat 5.0, but it tells me I cannot do that. I am stuck in limbo. I was able to perform a scan with AVG Free, but nothing was detected.

My computer info:
Compaq Presario
HP Intel (R) Pentium (R) M
Processor 1.50 GHz
598 MHz 736MB RAM
MS Windows XP, Home Edition
Version 2002, Service Pack 3

Error Messages read like this:
"Acrobat could not open MediaMonkey.exe because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been corrupted (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).
To create an Adobe PDF document, go to the source application. Then print the document to the Acrobat distiller printer."

Each message is a little different, of course, depending on the application I am trying to open. I am hoping that someone has encountered this before and can tell me what to do to get back on track. Keep in mind that I am only about one step above novice, so be as precise as you can without being too technical.
