Acrobat Reader 9.2 on Windows Embedded Standard 2009

12 02 2010

I am sitting in the lounge on Hannover airport and waiting for my plane currently grounded in Munich due to heavy snowfall. What a winter we have this year in Germany! Keep fingers crossed that the plane is going to take me back tonight into the weekend, although quite late. 😦
Well, this at least gives me time to blog about the solution of a problem encountered in one of my projects today. Acrobat Reader 9.2 died pretty nastily on WES 2009 each time it was started, with an unknown error during font capture.
With the help of Sysinternals File Monitor (filemon) we were able to track down the cause:
Acrobat Reader is missing a file called ATMlib.dll, which seemingly is not installed when running the setup in WES 2009.
Add this file into the Windows\System32 folder and everything should be running fine. 🙂
