    Hi,

    I have a Windows 2003 Standard Edition SP (Build 3790) server which
    experiences problem with the combination of IE 8 and Adobe Reader (9.3.1
    w/update).
    When executing AR I get the following error:

    AcroRd32.exe - Ordinal not found
    The ordinal 120 could not be located in the dynamic link library
    iertutil.dll (Fileversion 8.0.6001.18702)

    The server have the following recent patches installed:

    KB976325, 971961, 976662, 978207.

    ******************

    I've tried to reinstall IE8 - no success
    I've tried to reinstall Adobe Reader - no success
    Uninstalled IE8 and used IE7 - Success!

    But I need IE8 to work :(

    Any suggestions ?

    Regards,
    Anouar

    You might want to give the KB978207 patch a go, this has iertutil.dll
    version 8.0.6001.18876 which is a little newer than the one you have. It's
    possible that Adobe Reader is compiled statically against a different than
    you're running (I'm using 9.3.1 with updates on XP SP3 with IE8 using
    iertutil.dll 8.0.6001.18876 and don't see the error you're seeing) which is
    why it's throwing an error about a missing ordinal.

    You can get the patch here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978207

    Any reason why you don't have any service packs install for Windows 2003?
    Build 3790 is the RTM release, Service Pack 2 has been out for 3 years!

    I use SP2 :) as listed in the Dependency Walker output. I'll try to install
    the patch and report back.

    I've checked the Adobe forums and FAQ's but I havent found any information
    resembling this error. I really think this is an OS or IE8 related error.
    When I uninstalled IE8 and used IE7, the error messages disappeared.
    Reinstalling IE8 made the errors come back again. In Add/Remove programs
    several IE7 patches remain listed. Should I uninstall these patches? I've
    disabled Trend Server Protect service when uninstalling/installing patches
    and IE8...

    Personally I think this is an Adobe issue - they appear to be statically
    linking to a DLL rather than dynamically linking, so if that DLL happens to
    be slightly different across patches then their Reader software breaks down.
    They may well be trying to reference a function call that is no longer
    present in the IE8 DLL, or that is not present in the Windows 2003 version
    of the file.

    Have you posted in Adobe Reader forum for assistance? Is Adobe Acrobat also
    installed?

    cf. http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb10-08.html

    cf. http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bulletins/apsb10-07.html

    ========

    1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

    => Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
    Explorer (No add-ons).

    Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer’s (No Add-ons) Mode [Applies to IE7 &
    IE8 in all OSS]
    http://blogs.msdn.com/ie/archive/2006/07/25/678113.aspx

    2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)?
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737

    3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed and/r uninstalled IE7 and/or IE8?

    4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
    machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?
