Form fill-in fails on Windows Touch

Issue

Form fill-in fails in Adobe Reader 11.0.6 because the virtual keyboard doesn't appear when a form field is selected. Instead, an error dialog box presents the following text:

This error occurs when all of the following conditions are true:

  • You are using Reader 11.0.06 (the virtual keyboard was not supported with 11.0.05).
  • Protected Mode is enabled.
  • You are using a Windows touch 8.x or later device.

Solutions

There are several options for fixing this issue:
  • Disable Touch Mode on the device.
  • Install the patch as described below. Adobe plans to include this fix in the next regular release of the product.
  • Disable Protected Mode in Reader (not recommended).
