Installation Troubleshooting

EverMap plug-ins for Adobe® Acrobat®

Turn off "Use Only Certified Plug-ins" Option
If you have installed the plug-in but do not see “Plug-ins” menu in Adobe Acrobat, then please do the following. Close all browser windows and restart Adobe Acrobat. Sometimes, Adobe Acrobat may be running invisibly by the web browser and you may need to restart your computer in order to force Adobe Acrobat to update its menu. If you have restarted Adobe Acrobat but still do not see the "Plug-ins" menu, then make sure that "Use only certified plug-ins" option in Acrobat application preferences is not set:
  1. Start Adobe Acrobat and select "Edit > Preferences..." from the main application menu.
  2. Select "General" group of settings.

    choose general category

  3. Scroll down the right-hand panel until you see "Application Startup" section and "Use only certified plug-ins" checkbox:

    choose general category

  4. Make sure that "Use only certified plug-ins" option is OFF.
  5. Save settings and restart Adobe Acrobat.
Check Setup Version
Verify that you are using a version of the setup file that supports version of Adobe Acrobat you are using. If you are trying to install an old 32-bit plug-in under a new 64-bit Adobe Acrobat (introduced around Dec 2021/January 2022), then it is not going to work. All plug-ins released before January 2022 are 32-bit and are incompatible with 64-bit Adobe Acrobat. You can check the build date for the plug-in via "Help > About Third Party Plug-ins >..." menu in Adobe Acrobat. Download the latest installer that supports 64-bit Adobe Acrobat by logging into the customer account at https://www.evermap.com/upgrades.asp. Download access is provided for two years after the purchase. If the license is outside of maintenance period, then you would need to renew maintenance in order to get access to the most recent setup file.
Turn Off Protected Mode
Make sure you are not running Adobe Acrobat in Protected Mode. In this mode, file access to non-PDF files is disabled.
Silent Installation
You can install software without displaying any dialogs or user interaction. This mode is useful for deploying software for a large number of users. All setup programs support a number of special command-line parameters that might be useful for system administrator.
