I'm sorry if this exact question has already been asked, but the similar duplicates I've found didn't have the same phrasing. Therefore, I'm asking a new question...
I have WinEdt 7.0 on Windows 7 and I have Adobe Acrobat Pro 9.0. Whenever I open WinEdt and I compile a file, everything works like a charm. If I re-compile without closing Adobe, the compiling fails and I get an error:
Cannot Open DDE Link to:
"C:\Progam Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe"
All of the problems I've found on the site have been related to changing
acroviewA11, but I wasn't able to find these anywhere.
Can someone help me?
UPDATE: Since I can't post answers for another 6 hours, and I have a high probability of forgetting to return here and accept an answer, I'll post my exact actions here.
After going to
Options Interface->Advanced Configuration->PDF Macros->Adobe Blues, and making the recommended changes from
Acroview according to this answer, I executed the macro by going to
Macros->Execute Current Macro (or it can be done using Ctrl+Shift+F9). At this point, I checked and it worked! The error occurred because I run Adobe 9 and not Adobe 11; however, I'm not sure what the precise cause of it was.
