Installation manual for Adobe Acrobat Pro on a clean Windows 10 pro installation.

1. Make sure your computer has Winzip, 7-Zip or Winrar installed. Take your internet cable out of the computer or disable your WIFI connection.
It is best not to have installed or install any other legal Adobe product. (e.g. Adobe Reader) Highly likely this will disable the crack!

2. Disable Windows Security Virus & threat protection.
(start - settings - update & security - windows security - Virus & threat protection - Virus & threat protection manage settings -
turn off real-time protection, turn off cloud-delivered protection, turn off tamper protection)
If possible keep this window open so you will notice, if windows real time protection suddenly turns on by itself.

NOTE: if you have installed another virus scanner, the windows virus scanner might be turned off already. Then you must disable your own virus scanner!!!

3. copy the downloaded file (Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2021.007.20102 FULL [TheWindowsForum.com]) to your desktop.
When Windows virus scanner is properly turned off, you should not get an error message)

4. Create a folder on the desktop named: Adobe Unzipped.

5. Open the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2021.007.20102 FULL [TheWindowsForum.com] folder on the desktop, and double click on the file: Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2021.007.20102 FULL
[TheWindowsForum.com]. Open it with one of the programs from step one, and extract the file in the new folder on the desktop: Adobe Unzipped.
The requested password is: thewindowsforum.com

6. Close all windows (except the virus scanner window).

7. Open the folder Adobe Unzipped. Open the folder Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 2021.007.20102 FULL [TheWindowsForum.com], open folder 1. Setup - AdobeAcrobatProDC2021, and right click on the file

Click on File, open, and CHANGE THE Text Documents (*.txt) box into: All Files !!!

In the still open folder, double click on the ReadMe file.

12. copy/paste the following lines from the ReadMe file into the hosts file. Just place them underneath the other text in that file. Carefully remove the space in front of the 127.0.0.1......

Maybe it is an idea to re-post the torrent everywhere, with this tutorial included.
Or include it with newer versions, if the installation method didn't change.
(pls, do not include my name.)

Excellent
Don't ignore the first line of the instructions. I have always suspected ANY install of any Adobe product before this install will almost certainly guarantee crack failure. That has been the case for a while now.

Is there a preferred way to download the file you mention in step 3? Is it somewhere on this site or elsewhere?

Thanks, I agree on this and edited the first line to make this more clear. I was not able to install Adobe Acrobat Pro while Adobe Reader was installed. And once the host file was edited, I was not able to install Adobe Reader.

I followed all the steps and would always get a popup telling me how many days I had left in my trial. After the trial expried, I started getting a window from Adobe Genuine Service, or something like that, pop up and tell me my adobe isn't genuine. And I couldn't "x" it out, I had to go into task manager to get rid of it. It kept poping up so I just uninstalled adobe completely.

Any one know why that happened? How to avoid?

Hi Varjak,

Your instructions are very well written. There was one, maybe two steps that gave me some pause, but no big issues. It loaded fine with no problems and runs great.

This is by far the best instructions I have seen from Thumper and the WindowsForum, and well over due.

My hats off too you for pulling this together for everyone's benefit. Well done and thanks!

Hey so I've done everything as per the tutorial but when i run the fix_x64 or x86 reg, I get a registry editor error saying

"Cannot import (the file and it's location). Not all data was successfully written to the registry. Some keys are open by the system or other processes, or you have insufficient privileges to perform this operation."

I don't know what "some keys are open by the system or other processes" refers to but I'm admin so it's not the privileges which are causing the problem.

When I get to the step 9 where I have to click on the "AcrobatDCUpd21007212" update, it says that "The upgrade patch cannot be installed by the Windows Installer service because the program to be upgraded may be missing...". Any ideas on what to do?

Yo, I'm new to torrenting and really don't want to get viruses on my new and fairly expensive laptop.

For what rational reason would I trust the users on this website to disable my Windows security and protection?? Just seems like a con for naive folk that are willing to risk it for a biscuit.
