  • Please show a screenshot of the window, created with alt+F7, then click on viewer ... Seems there is an error with your DDE commands ... – Kurt Jul 26 '17 at 19:18
  • I tried that, @Kurt, but alt+F7 did nothing and there is no viewer to click on. – Shaun Jul 26 '17 at 20:22

    I guess you have to change the Server acroview depending on the exact version of your pdf viewer. For example could it be acroviewerR11. Can you please check the version number you use? – Kurt Jul 26 '17 at 21:03

    Check the help menu of acrobat, usually you will find there the version number too. – Kurt Jul 28 '17 at 13:29

    Yes, version 17 needs acroviewR17. After installing the next version of acrobat reader remember to change the server again! – Kurt Jul 28 '17 at 14:41
