I too have this same problem. Please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org when it is fixed. Maybe go to another purchase client other than the one you are on. Many have had problems with them. I was really excited about this product. I hope that you set it straightened out soon. Thanks. Pia
Hi fixer. Do you have any updates on this purchasing issue? I am asking because I feel that the 10-processes limitation of the demo version is somewhat brothering even when I do not run browsers like edge and chrome in the isolated environment, as this constraint is on the total number of all the applications lauched in Rehips even if they are running in different isolated environments. Therefore, I hope this purchasing issue could get solved soon so that I could buy a licence.

Looks like you're right, Acrobat complains trying to enable Protected Mode. Will add to our TODO list to investigate the issue. If I remember correctly, they use Chrome isolation, guess they added something custom.
There was a blogpost about AppContainer and isolation here https://forum.rehips.com/index.php?topic=9533.0 In a few words: -if an app uses AppContainer only, most likely it's the hardest isolation, no need to use ReHIPS; -if some (or all) processes are not isolated, ReHIPS is recommended.
In Reader case I'd use ReHIPS and drop Protected Mode.

>1. Your Windows and Reader are fully updated, I guess? Sure.
>2. What version of Reader do you use? 21.005.20060
>3. What errors does it show or why you couldn't run it in isolation? When I created this thread last week, Reader just did not launch in the isolated environment with no notification/message. However, after changing some settings for Defender, I cannot reproduce that problem now (sorry). Now when I launch Reader in the isolated environment, it shows a pop-up window saying that Adobe Reader cannot open with Protected Mode owing to incompatibility issues and asking whether I would like to open Adobe Reader with turning Protected Mode off. If I choose to open Reader with turning Protected Mode off, Reader could actually be launched in the isolated environment.
So, now my question is, could I run Reader in isolation without turning off Protected Mode? If not, then what would be the best practice, running Reader in the isolated environment of ReHIPS or running Reader in the Protected Mode (plus Appcontainer)?

I am running the demo version of Rehips 2.5 on Win 10 (home version, 64-bit). After installing and updating adobe acrobat reader, I found that I could not run it in the isolated environment which is automatically generated by Rehips. Only if I turn off the Protected Mode of Acrobat Reader and turn off SRP (As I am using the home version of Win 10, I enabled/disabled SRP through Hard_Configuratorhttps://github.com/AndyFul/Hard_Configurator), Acrobat Reader can be launched in the isolated environment. My questions are:
1. Could Rehips work with the Protected Mode of Acrobat Reader? 2. Why SRP could interfere the isolated environment of Rehips for Acrobat Reader?
Yeah, I know, this hassle with driver signature enforcement and changing hash algos may be painful when it comes to supporting old OS-s. But unfortunately there is nothing we can do from our side. Apart from this signatures ReHIPS completely supports Windows 7. But we had to rebuild driver to workaround some Windows bugs, so had to follow new signature requirements.
Most of the changes are new features/fixes, I don't remember any serious security issues.
Thank you for your attention. I had already updated the system with those patches you sent me (I tried to run them and it said that those updates were already installed).
When I run Windows update it says the system is already up to date so i dont know if my system is actually up to date or its windows update that is bugged. Anyway, i'll probably continue to use Rehips 2.4 then or install Windows 10 LTSC.
Is Rehips 2.4 still good and secure right? And does Rehips 2.5 RC1 works on Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC?
Thank you again for your answers and attention and sorry for my english.
