Adobe Reader from the base hangs when opening PDF from virtual application

I need a solution


We've been fighting with this problem all this semester without finding any solution. We've opened a lot of cases that at the end are closed without any real solution. I hope someone in the forums, Symantec employees or other customers can help us.

We're actually using 7.5.559 version of SWV. Our OS is Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64.

We have Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird virtualized using 7.5.779. Firefox is version 37.0.2. Thunderbird is 38.0.1. We've had this problem with other versions. Adobe Reader XI is installed in the base and is configured to use protected mode (so PDF files are opened inside a sandbox for security against malware).

If the user clic a link to a PDF file from Mozilla Firefox or opens and attachment in a mail message in Thunderbird and opens the PDF file using Adobe Reader the behaviour is that Adobe Reader hangs after scrolling the document. Windows reports that the program is not responding and you need to close it.

If we disable Protected mode then there is no problem.

We've minimized the problem (i.e. Adobe Reader doesn't hangs always but randomly) using some global excludes for directories where we have seen that Mozilla/Adobe write temporary files.

We have a similar problem using Microsoft Office 2013 x64 (is in the base). In this case, trying to open an Office file (docx, pptx, etc.) from a mail or using the browser can't be done. Office can't find the files if we enable protected view.

We have created a video showing the problem with PDF files:

And another video showing the problem with Office files:

If we open Office/PDF files from the Desktop then all works well:

Any idea would be very appreciated!

Best Free Alternative PDF Viewer to Adobe Reader

If you’re looking for a free alternative to Adobe Reader, one of the best options out there currently is Foxit PDF Reader. Other than being able to view a PDF file, the program has a huge number of features that pushes it far beyond Adobe Reader and much closer to what Adobe Acrobat can do. I used Adobe Reader for years because it was from Adobe and I felt it had to be better because Adobe is a behemoth and they create amazing software like Photoshop! However, being a behemoth is also a ba...

Will an SSD reduce the lag of scrolling in Adobe PDF Reader?

I have a Thinkpad T530 with HDD and often experience lags when scrolling thru PDF files in Adobe Reader. I'm still not sure what's limiting the speed, CPU, RAM (unlikely since I have 8G and never use more than 4G), or Hard drive. I wonder whether upgrading to an SSD will speed it up. (Using Windows) I have Ubuntu dual boot, and the default pdf reader on that, though lacking functions, doesn't lag when scrolling. EDIT: I should add that the PDF files I'm talking about are a...
