The Program Used to Create this Object is Acroexch

Written by Allen White on. Posted in General

Nice quick simple one here, I recently did quite a large Visio document and export to PDF. I then needed to import this PDF into Word (I know I know).

Whilst importing the the PDF Word 2016 spat out the following error:

The Program Used to Create this Object is Acroexch

It then would not let me embed to PDF into the document. To resolve the issue do the following.

Launch Adobe Reader.
From Edit menu select Preferences, Preferences dialog box appears.
Select Security and advanced,then uncheck or remove tick mark for “Enable protected mode at startup”
Close all instances of Adobe
Then Import your PDF successfully

The program used to create this object is AcroExch.
