Can't open manuals from inside Cubase

Ok, here’s an odd one.

  1. Make sure Acrobat Reader DC is your default viewer for PDF files
  2. Open Cubase (tried with 8.5.15, 8.0.40, 7.5.40, same result in all)
  3. Go to documentation and open any of the manuals. Nothing happens.

It opens Acrobat Reader DC processes but they don’t come up. Setting another program as default PDF viewer makes it work. Opening the manuals directly in Windows Explorer works (With DC). Simply doesn’t open from within Cubase.

I just installed Windows 10, maybe that has something to do with it. Tried reinstalling Arcrobat Reader DC - didn’t fix the problem.

I have exactly the same problem since installing Win 10.

If I change to Edge as the standard app for .pdf files it works but I would prefer for the files to open in Acrobat Reader.

Exactly the same for me, anything else as default works fine.

I don’t have this problem (Win 10). But I am using solid PDF tools to open PDF files as default.
