Topic: Runtime error: Abnormal program termination when Acrobat 5.05 is opened
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 135985

I am using Acrobat 5.05 on my desktop with Windows XP pro installed on it. The system also has Office 2003 Pro installed. Recently, I ve run into this runtime error when I try to open Adobe Acrobat. The splash screen appears for a while, then as soon as the main window appears, the following error message is displayed:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime error: Program:D:\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe abnormal program termination

When I click on "OK" the only option present on the err msg window, Acrobat is closed.

I tried re-installing the Acrobat 5.05 package but it didn't help.
I could'nt get any remedy when I looked up the Adobe knowledge base and also the Microsoft knowledge base. There were similar runtime error issues with Word, Excel because of PDFMaker addins and others. But I think this problem is different since Acrobat itself crashes as soon as it is opened.

I would certainly appreciate a little help here.
