    Default Adobe reader always closes automatically

    Hi all,

    This desktop is for company use. I installed windows 8 consumer preview in March. And I installed Adobe reader to open PDF file. Today, I open a PDF file with Adobe reader, but the file closes automatically suddenly. I open again, it closes again. I tried several times, same problem. The file will close less than 1 min later.

    What happens?

    First, If the PC is for company use, do they own it? If they own it, did they approve the installation of a beta OS, Win 8 RP (I assume you installed the latest version)

    Second, If the PC is yours, try a different PDF reader. I have found Foxit Reader works quite well although many others do as well. Most are far more secure than Adobe Reader, and consume far less resources.

    Hi Ted,

    Thanks for reply.

    I have used this desktop for one year and I am the only person who is using it in my company. Also,I installed windows 8 consumer preview in March. Adobe reader worked perfectly since I installed till yesterday. My PDF files always close. I attempted to open other PDF files, same problem.

    The version of Adobe reader if 10.1.3.13. I am not sure if its the latest version.

    It should be the latest version, there is the option to check for updates in the drop down menu. I haven't had any issues with Adobe, other than it being a resource pig. But it's seldom used, so I can live with it. If I had to deal with PDF files daily, I'd use an alternate.

    Foxit Reader, as Ted stated is an option, but there were issues with the newer version & Firefox after an update. However, Foxit has been updated again since then & it may be OK now. It's worth trying out to see, at no cost to you.

    I would also suggest clean installing Win 8 RP. There have been many changes that might solve the original problem. I also want to repeat, does your company realize you installed a time limited (it will deactivate automatically after Win 8 is released) beta OS on a company owned PC. Most employers would have a huge problem doing this, no matter how many people use the PC. Beta OS's have problems and are not designed to be installed on work related PC's.
