Hello

I replace the .plist. If it works I will see in a couple of days/weeks. Only one strange behaviour. In the Settings of Acrobat nothing change to the auto update settings. Is this a normal behaviour?

Further one question: What I don't unterstand ist that in an Unpatched Version you can disable the auto update but in a Patched Version this disabling doesn't work by deactivate the checkbox?
What is gone wrong with the Patcher?

I've the same issue! :-/

I've noticed that every time I open Acrobat, the file in question (com.adobe.Acrobat.Pro.plist) is replaced with default binary file.
Any preferences are reset to the default.

When internet connection is disabled, you don't see the annoying message when loading photoshop. I tried using firewall but that does not work. Is there a way to trick it to think there is no internet connection?
