Since I bought new windows 8 laptop I am fighting with adobe reader crash issue. However windows 8 adobe reader metro application works fine but most of time it is worthless as you won’t like to switch from desktop to metro application mode every time. Desktop adobe reader version is more useful. Uninstalling and installing adobe reader could not fix issue. It was quite frustrating. Here is simple working solution to fix this issue.
Following below steps:
1. Go to adobe reader installation folder. Default location is C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader. If installation folder is different in your case please open that folder.
2. Run Eula.exe file. Use double click or select and press enter key to run file.
3. In the next window Accept the license agreement. It will close window automatically and issue should resolve post this point.
4. Now open adobe reader by clicking on desktop icon.
