And why not just accept the CLA? How this should be done depends on the platform, and how to do it in Mac has already been explained in this thread (and in the message you received).

Activate Protected mode is a new feature in Reader X that allows a “Sandbox” layer of security in Reader. You can imagine here: blogs.adobe.com/livecycle/2010/11/technical-details-of-adobe-reader-x-protected-mode.html Once you start this application, you should be able to accept the LAE and launch/update Reader. I do not seem to be witnessing this problem. I wonder if it`s just the chance of everything, or because I have higher rights than users… I have problems with opening pdf files. I get the following statement: “Before you continue, you must first launch Adobe Acrobat and accept the end-user license agreement.” Can you tell me what that means? I would really like to read some important documents. Thank you very much! Leah Aha.

Looks like it could have been like this. I had disabled security, but as an administrator. It seems that I have to disable it as a connected user. Or does anyone know how to disable it by default? All files in the folder that was previously blocked are now opened by double-clicking, so it doesn`t just remember some way file permissions. Hmmm. The implementation of the update installation program required an explicit administrator authorization under Win7. Perhaps cycling protected mode of a user level somehow directory of accessible folders? Can you tell us if this article solves the problem:helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/bla…In short, it offers: Solution 1: I get this error when I try to install the Adobe Reader update. I have creative cloud and my Adobe Acrobat is all licensed and active. What`s the matter? It seems that Alex is right. I deleted the bProtectedMode recording of the policies of the AdobeLockdown software and I was able to open all the files with the message. However, I`m not 100% sure what it will do with other PDF files, as we originally disabled it, which allowed some files to open. Until now, this user was ok with Protected Mode ENABLED, but in a recent test, I was prevented from opening a PDF-B/c web on my PC at my desktop.

It seems to be an authorization issue, because as an administrator, I do not see the error message. However, if a user simultaneously opens the PDF file from Adobe Reader (unlike Windows Explorer), they can open it. So that would rule out an eligibility problem… I have the same problem! If I double-click to open PDF files, I get the error message “Accept the end user license agreement.” I tried all the proposed corrections, but no one was able to solve my problem. There are no Acrobat entries in the software HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, so it`s curious to see “AppInitialized” under my user account. pariswells.com/blog/tag/before-proceeding-you-must-first-launch-adobe-acrobat-and-accept-the-… On the Adobe forum, one user responded that he was able to remove all Adobe apps and Adobe registration keys and reinstall. I`m definitely not ready to reinstall Photoshop, so I`m not going to try the whole procedure. But it`s interesting to see some Acrobat entries in my recording next to the reader entries: under certain conditions that try to open a PDF document with Adobe Reader X, the error “Before you continue, you must first launch Adobe Acrobat and accept the end user license agreement”. Opening the file in Adobe Reader (file > Open) works perfectly.

In my scenario, I initially tried to update Reader 10.0.1 to 10.1.0 with SCUP and the published update.
