  • Foxit Reader crashes

    Have been using Foxit Reader 606 for ages - worked fine. Then updater automatically updated last week (I think) and now it crashes when I try to open ANY PDF or indeed open the program from Start menu. I must have sent about 10 crash reports via the application. My system is Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit service pack 2 Then I manually downloaded the latest 703 version (exe file) - This won't install, the installer crashes with this message in the Windows Event log: Faulting application FoxitReader.exe, version, time stamp 0x54199a97, faulting module FoxitReader.exe, version, time stamp 0x54199a97, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x001e4ead, process id 0xf8c, application start time 0x01d005777644741f. (I think this is actully the same version as the autoupdater installed).

    Finally to get something working I uninstalled 703 and reinstalled 606 and things are working fine again (can open and read PDFs)

    I just want something simple lightweight that allows me to read PDFs and navigate through them. If there are no security problems with ver 606 I don't feel the need to upgrade. And I really hate programs which auto upgrade and then stop working as a result!
