[Tex/LaTex] switching to pdf view with Adobe Acrobat DC


I just installed Lyx 2.1 on my computer for the first time.
I wanted to create my first trial pdf but switching to viewing mode is for some reason not working with the Acrobat Reader DC. I tried many options found on the web but I am afraid my little knowledge is not sufficing to make it work.

I would really appreciate a detailed answer 🙂

Try replacing the file pdfview.exe on your PC with this one: http://ftp.lyx.de/LyX%202.1.3/pdfview.exe

Usually it is located in the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\LyX 2.1\bin
