I have a deadline to meet, so please be sympathetic if this is a low quality question.

Since I'm having the same problem, I have tried variations of the suggestions here:

I have had no success.

Here is my latest attempt:

Executable path:

 C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe

View project's output, server:


Forward search, server:


Close document before running (La)TeX:

    I have AcroviewR22 (with uppercase A) as dde name (this is from a current reader). But you don't have to use adobe, you could also use sumatra, or another editor. Mar 16, 2022 at 16:02
  • Thank you. That didn't work, @UlrikeFischer, although I might not have the right "executable path". Which do you use?

  • even if I have another path: it doesn't matter where the reader is installed on my machine but where it is one yours. Check also the version. Do you really already have the 2022 version? Mar 16, 2022 at 17:43
  • I don't know, @UlrikeFischer.

  • @Shaun: Thank you! Mar 17, 2022 at 10:35
  • ...A22 is for acrobat pro, the reader uses ...R22. So it depends on what you actually have. Mar 17, 2022 at 11:08
  • The path you show above in your screenshot is ...\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe, and that is acrobat pro, the reader has the path ...\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe (I have both too, so I can compare). Mar 17, 2022 at 12:54
