[Tex/LaTex] pdfopen / pdfclose don’t work with Acrobat/Adobe Reader XI


Can anybody explain how to get pdfopen/pdfclose working for Adobe Reader XI? If you could make your instructions as detailed as possible that would be really appreciated. I'm using Miktex 2.9 on Windows 7.

Tex editor Winedt version 5.5

More information on problem:

If Adobe Reader (AR) is closed and I hit Pdf Texify button on Winedt
The program compiles and AR opens, however, immediately the file Acrobat OpenDoc.edt opens in Winedt editor and the following message pops up:

Cannot Open DDE link to:
"C:\Program Files (x86) \Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader\AcroRd32.edx"
Service: Acroview

If I want to compile my tex file again, I need to first manually close AR.

I thought it might be connected to the problem described here:

but I don't know how to implement what is suggested.

The name of the DDE server for version Adobe Reader XI (i.e. version 11) must be AcroViewR11, cf. Big Changes in the DDE Naming Convention for Acrobat X. According to the error message you still use acroview.

In the blog entry you can also read, that for Adobe Acrobat XI the DDE server would be AcroViewA11.
