Here are the replies that I sent to the list on February 19, 2011, to the same question:
I am using Winedt 5.5.
When I upgraded to Acrobat 10, I had the same DDE problem.
After scouring the web I found the following solution:
I went to the file .....\Winedt Team\Winedt\exe\Acrobat OpenDoc.edt .... Line 106
and I changed DDEOpen('%$("AcroRead")',"acroview","control",0);
Now, I don't have the DDE problem. I hope it works for you.
Further to my previous message, the change to acroviewR10 is for those using the Reader.
If someone uses the full Acrobat I believe that the change should be to acroviewA10.

I have the very same problem as described above, except that I use WinEdt 5.5,
and the last line of the error message that I get is
This is line 36 of the file "Acrobat CloseDoc.edt", and I suppose that just
modifying this line appropriately should solve the problem. Is this correct?
Exactly how should I modify it? (An expert would probably have figured
this out from the answer given above, but it doesn't tell much to a non-expert
Many thanks in advance!
