Windows 7: uninstalling acrobat kills word 2003 > 2007 document conversion

uninstalling acrobat kills word 2003 > 2007 document conversion

ok - so i'm finally trying to update my acrobat from 9 to 10, so that i could get the thumbnailed resort of images.

but - after uninstall of acrobat 9, opening docx with the converter stops working. error message is something like "error opening document." e.g. no help there. and "repair office" fails to complete, saying a file "cannot be registered." don't have the exact file name available.

and i've now tried this twice. first time i proceeded to put acrobat 10 on before realizing that my system was crippled, and had to restore a clone.

yes, i prefer word 2003 to all later versions, it's the last one to have a user interface... no ribbons here, thank you.

anyone else see something like this? pointers?

oh yes - i'm on win7-64.

Would you consider using Foxit Reader or Sumatra as your pdf readers? They don't have the security problems of Acrobat, load much faster, and don't patch security holes every 6 months. You can open doc and .docx in Open Office or LibreOffice, both free suites. There are also numerous converter sites online:

The version of Acrobat Reader on my computer is version 15, which I think is the latest version.

Perhaps you could try uninstalling version 9 & installing version 15, rather than version 10.

the problem is that mere uninstall of acrobat 9 already destroys word.

i doubt that installation of acro15 would fix it. and i need the professional version of acrobat to generate .pdf not just read them.

I think Foxit Reader would solve your problem and it's free too!

no, i cannot consider alternatives to these industry standard programs. and i need a PDF writer, not reader. acr9 is good, but it doesn't have a re-arrangeable thumbnail view of a document's pages. > 10 does.

I still use Office 2003 because it works the way I want it to. I also use Adobe Acrobat 10.1.2 Pro to convert a doc file to pdf. If you want it PM me? It also works on Windows 8 & 10.

Does not Acrobat 10.1.2 Pro need a proper activation key to work properly and be legal?
