Running 'Adobe Acrobat PRO DC 2020.009.20063' using updated instructions with no issues!

Thank you! :D

View attachment 5312
so u first installed 0063, then downgraded to 0042 using these "https://thewindowsforum.com/threads/adobe-acrobat-pro-dc-2020-009-20063.81109/#post-117218 and then how did u get back to 0063 ?
There're a bunch of tweaks that ppl have tried in posts above - not sure what's the correct sequence
...wud be good if someone posts a modified steps version that worked for 0063 being latest.

Taking ThumperTM's instructions and adjusting them as needed:

Instructions:

0) If you have any older Acrobat version (or any not working version), first you need to uninstall it, i used Revo uninstaller. After you remove all Acrobat files you need to reboot your PC. (It is important to use a specific uninstaller like Revo or BCUninstaller to remove all traces of Acrobat!, run advanced-scan or scan for leftovers post-uninstall)
1) Download "AcrobatDCUpd2000620042.msp" from https://supportdownloads.adobe.com/detail.jsp?ftpID=6883
2) Disable your internet connection
3) Add following text in your Hosts file. (Google how to edit windows hosts file if you not sure how to do that):

127.0.0.1 lmlicenses.wip4.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 lm.licenses.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 na1r.services.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 hlrcv.stage.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 practivate.adobe.com
127.0.0.1 activate.adobe.com

4) Extract archive
5) Install "Acrobat_DC_Web_WWMUI.exe" with trial when it asks for serial
6) When installation is done, don't open!
7) Install "AcrobatDCUpd2000620042.msp" (Don't reboot)
8) Disable your antivirus
9) Extract "adobe.snr.patch.v2.0-painter.zip" (any location is fine)
10) Run as Administrator "adobe.snr.patch.v2.0-painter.exe"
11) Select Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2015 (32-bit) and Patch > Screenshot: https://imgsaver.com/image/yy5O
12) Copy the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\amtlib.dll" to the desktop as backup
13) Run Acrobat, accept Terms, go to EDIT > PREFERENCES > UPDATER > uncheck Automatically install updates > Screenshot: https://imgsaver.com/image/yFl8
14) Open Acrobat, if you are logged in already, make sure to logout: 15) Exit Acrobat and Install "AcrobatDCUpd2000920063.msp" (Don't reboot)
16) Copy the backup file amtlib.dll (see step 12) from desktop, and paste it at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\" (Click yes to replace the file)
17) Acrobat should be running now fine on v2020.009.20063
18) Enable your internet connection, your antivirus and reboot
DONE!

Good luck,

as an extra precaution i also blocked the internet traffic to those executables through windows firewall
Code:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat DC\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\P7\adobe_licutil.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\ARM\1.0\AdobeARM.exe
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\OOBE\PDApp\core\PDapp.exe
this way you completely cut off internet access to the program, which i am personally fine with that.

yup...this cant hurt. 2 quick questions:
1. Why do we need to login into Adobe...any reason?
2. About updating for future releases- shd. we go to https://supportdownloads.adobe.com/detail.jsp?ftpID=6883 adobe .MSP files- every 6 months and just do latest patch- so essentially repeating steps 11-15?

1. You don't need to login, this step is just in case you are logged in already. You need to be logged out.
step 14 is not needed if you are doing a clean installation

2. We cant be sure about the future, but you can try to do manual updates if you go to
and then perform steps 1,2,12,15,16. Check every 2 months, that's the usual release schedule.

As a side note, for example now there are currently some optional updates bumping the version to 20.009.20067, you can check them out at https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/release-note/release-notes-acrobat-reader.html

good job,

yes it is important to to remove Adobe Acrobat completely if you have failed before. I edited the mini guide accordingly to be more clear about it.

thank you
