Adobe Reader X (10.1.2) crashes whenever you try to print with event ID 1000 errors


You’ve been getting complaints from your users that Adobe Reader X (10.1.2) crashes whenever they try to print from their Windows 7 32-bit workstations.  As soon as the users try to open the print window, Adobe shuts down.



Reviewing the event logs, you see event IDs 1000 and 1001 logged in the Application logs:

With a bit of research and weeding through threads that had solutions such as checking the printer shared name, I finally found the solution here:

This problem is apparently caused by Adobe Reader X’s Protected Mode at startup feature shown here:



While disabling this feature is probably going to be a security vulnerability, I have 50+ virtual desktops that I need to fix before the weekend ends so I went ahead and applied the following registry change to the master image, recomposed my VMware View virtual desktops and was on my way:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\10.0\FeatureLockDown] “bProtectedMode”=dword:00000000


Once the above registry key is added, the Preferences window should look like this:


This is another one of the many times I’m thankful that I’m working with linked-clones in VMware View.
