Application Error Event 1000 DllHost.exe caused by acrobat_compat.dll

I have been getting several application error event id 1000 on DllHost.exe. I enabled user mode dumps for DllHost.exe. I then ran Windbg on the dmp file to find out what module is causing the error.  It found that acrobat_compat.dll is the culprit. It seems others have had the same issue from what I have read in these forums. I did find I have two acrobat_compat.dll files on my system. They both are version 13.58.0.1180 but have different file sizes. See attached image. My versions are as follows:

Computer: ideapad 330
OS: Windows 10 Home 21H2
Nitro Pro: 13.58.0.1180

Here is the Windbg output:

Hello @Stephen Fason,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums and for providing the Windbg output.

Did you notice that the Windows Explorer is crashing in the system? If yes, we have seen this rare behavior so please perform the tasks listed below in order to narrow down the issue: 

- Open a CMD window as an Administrator

- Navigate to the folder where Nitro PDF Pro is installed by entering the following CMD syntax: cd "c:\Program Files\Nitro\Pro\13" and pressing Enter

- Disable the Thumbnail provider by entering in: regsvr32 /u NitroPDFThumbnailProvider.dll and pressing Enter

- A prompt saying “DllUnregisterServer in NitroPDFThumbnailProvider.dll succeeded” should appear, click Okay.

Thank you for your patience and please let us know how it goes on your end.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will let you know if it fixes it. Does it require a reboot?

Update: I followed your instructions and got the succeeded message as expected. I decided to check the event log and found that running the command caused an Application Error 1000 for regsvr32.exe. When I ran Windbg on the dump file, acrobat_compat.dll was again listed.

Hello,


I had the exact same issue on a brand new Lenovo PC with Win 10 Pro 21H2, with Nitro Pro 13.58 installed.

Explorer.exe and DllHost.exe crashing every few minutes, running windbg on .dump files show acrobat_compat.dll causing unhandled exception:


ERROR_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 (memory could not be read)
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID:  NULL_CLASS_PTR_WRITE_c0000005_acrobat_compat.dll!ASGetErrorString
IMAGE_VERSION:  13.40.0.811

Unregistering NitroPDFThumbnailProvider.dll as explained by @Allain Umailin seems to have fixed the problem after a reboot.

I'll keep updating this thread if other episodes happen.

Thanks
Gabriele
