Protected View in Acrobat X, Version 10.1

| 12 Comments
Share

With the release of the 10.1 update, Acrobat X for Windows provides a sandbox called Protected View. Protected View is another defense-in-depth feature that is tightly integrated with the existing Enhanced Security feature. Protected View in Acrobat leverages the successful sandbox implementation already in place for Adobe Reader while providing a user experience that should be familiar to Microsoft Office 2010 users.

Acrobat’s Protected View sandbox is similar to Reader’s Protected Mode sandbox and provides equal protection. Just like Reader, Acrobat strictly confines the execution environment of untrusted PDF files and the processes they invoke. Based on user preferences when Protected View is enabled, Acrobat assumes either all PDF files or just PDF files loading from untrusted locations are potentially malicious and confines processing to a restricted sandbox.

Installing Acrobat X and Reader X on the Same Machine

In “5 Things to Think About Before Deploying Adobe Reader or Acrobat X” I mentioned that…

Prior to version X, Adobe did not support a configuration where both Reader and Acrobat are installed on the same system; this is now a supported configuration. If you want to deploy this way, you’ll want to decide which product is the default for viewing PDF files before you deploy them both.

To help clarify that, I’d like to explain exactly how to do this.

Acrobat 9.4.2 Printing Problems Update

| 5 Comments

Some customers who updated to Acrobat 9.4.2 have been experiencing printing problems.

After updating to Acrobat 9.4.2, one of the following occurs when you print to a printer from Acrobat:

  • Error: "Before you can perform print-related tasks such as page setup or printing a document, you need to install a printer."
  • Nothing happens when you click the OK button in the Print dialog. For example, no progress bar appears and nothing is printed.

We just released a technote to help remedy this problem.

You can find the technote here.

UPDATE: We re-released the 9.4.2 patch. If you have not already applied the patch, you can simply reboot your system and the updater will fetch the newer version and then you don’t need to go through the process outlined in the technote.
