    Top Adobe Acrobat Troubleshooting Issue

  • Try the following if you are unable to click on "Accept" or "Deny" for the software license agreement and have one or more of the following symptoms: you don't see the "Accept" or "Deny" buttons; when you move the mouse over the buttons, it changes to an editing cursor; or, the "Accept" and "Deny" buttons disappear when you click somewhere else in the dialog box.

    First, press "Enter" to accept the license agreement. If this does not work, change your screen's resolution to 1024 by 768. Finally, try setting the display dots per inch and font size for your video driver to "Default" or "Normal."

  • Installation Problems
  • Before installing, make sure that your computer satisfies Acrobat's minimum system requirements. Install Adobe Acrobat from an account with administrator privileges. If Acrobat does not install successfully, create a new administrative account and try installing Acrobat from that account. If the software does not install, reboot your computer and then copy the "Acrobat" directory from your DVD to your hard drive. Run the installer from the "Acrobat" directory on the hard drive.

  • If the installation does not complete successfully, reboot your computer and delete the temporary installer files before trying to reinstall. Go to "Documents and Settings/(your user account name)/Local Settings/Temp/" and delete any files you find there. Next, defragment your hard drive and run a virus scan. Install Acrobat when the scan completes. If it doesn't install, reboot the computer and try to install Acrobat again, but this time select "custom" on the install menu. Select only the minimum required files. If they install correctly, reboot your computer and start the installer again. This time, select "Modify" and add one additional feature that you want installed. Reboot your computer and repeat this install process until you have installed all the features you want.

  • Cannot Print a Specific File
  • If you can't print a PDF file, try to print a different PDF. If you successfully print the second file, the first file could be damaged. First, try to print the file as an image--select "Advanced" from the print dialog, then "Print as image." If that doesn't work, use "Save as" to save the file under a new name, then try to print the new file. If it doesn't print to your printer, select the Adobe printer and print to that--it will re-create the file.
  • Hilton Bristol Jul 31, 2010



  • Try printing the re-created file on your printer. If you still aren't successful, try printing the file one page or one section of pages at a time to see if you can discover what part of the file has the problem. When you discover the problem, redo or remove that page.

  • Cannot Print Any PDF File
  • If you cannot print any PDF files, try to print another file type, such as a text file. If this works, restart your computer and try to print the PDF file again. If that doesn't work, turn off your printer and wait 30 seconds. Turn it back on and try to print the file. If you still aren't successful, try printing from another computer or to another printer.

    Can't print multiple PDF files in 11x17 format. I open windows explorer and select the specific PDF files. Click on File, Print. They all print out, but they all are 8 1/2 x 11 on a 11x17 paper, instead of...


    Adobe Reader can be real pain it the... neck sometimes.
    But first I would inspect not only the printer setup, but also printer's default print settings. Windows XP has 3 places, where you can see the printer options:
    1. Printer properties
    2. Print preferences
    3. Default print setup.
    The third one is the one you have to set. When you double click on your printer icon, a print queue window opens. Choose Printer->Properties, go to Advanced tab, and on the bottom there's a button "Default print setup" (I don't have English XP handy, so I'm translating back to English from my version - excuse me if they might appear a little different).
    It's there you need to set up the default page size and so on.

    If this still doesn't help, try opening Acrobat Reader, setting the Page Size Scaling to None, printing something and closing Acrobat Reader. From what I've seen, it tends to remember this setting from previous sessions.

    You may also try alternative PDF readers, like Foxit Reader or PDF Xchange Reader.

    Good luck :)

    Exactly the same problem - any PDF from any PC causes paper jam


    You might want to switch to an alternative to adobe if that is what you are using.

    I have been an adobe fan and user for years but changed about 8 months ago and have never looked back
    it is a program called FOXIT

    Not only does it do more than Adobe reader it is much much faster at opening and printing PDF files.

    It is the only TRUE alternantive to adobe

    Can't print a pdf file


    Sounds like you are using the PDF printer as your selected printer - this is for creating PDF files in which case you would give it a name.
    If you have a PDF file open, simply select your printer (1610) as the printer to print to as with any other documents you print.

    Office 2007 professional and Adobe 8 Professional problem


    Very simple fix. Now and then after an Adobe Acrobat update Office will disable Adobe Acrobat as it is an add on. All you need to do is re-enable Adobe Acrobat. In Office 2007 goto Word Options, Add-ons, and at the bottom of the page is Manage. Click on the down arrow and select Disabled Items and click on GO. Re-enable Acrobat and you should be fine. In Office 2003, goto Help and selects disabled macros and re-enabler Acrobat.
