Bug: Reader DC v20.012.20041 crashing on open for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2
Serveral users in different environments having issues with the August 2020 update. Reader DC no longer works to open PDFs. Uninstall and Reinstall, and repair have not fixed the issue. Issue exists on Windows 8.1 systems and Windows Server 2012 R2. Issue occurs when attempting to open PDFs. On some uninstall and reinstall, tests of opening PDFs are successful, and then start failing again.
Realy sorry to hear about the issue that you are facing with the Latest Reader when trying to open the PDFs.
We would like you to kindly share the requested Procmon logs(as shared in the previous replies) with us so that the engineering Team can start actively working on the issue that you are facing.
Also we would want to do a Web-Conference session as soon as possible where we would also debug the issue virtually on your machine for fixing.
Please let me know your availability so that a meeting could be scheduled for the same.
You can drop an an email directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for any other assistance that you may need in this ?
Saya berharap di maklumi klu ada yg salah,sebabsaya tidak terlalu mengerti dengan bahasa inggr
