Doesn't open half the time. My installation has severe problems with Windows 7. I have CS6 versions of Acrobat pro. Not sure why, but it doesn't open sometimes, and sometimes when it does it crashes.

The PDF converter does not work well and the pdf editor is really clumsy. I chose this product because of online reviews but have not had a great experience. I contacted customer support with my concerns and was given a discount to upgrade to PDFelement...
