Is there any way to avoid forms showing the "Please wait..." even when opened in Acrobat Pro DC?

Here are two examples:

Yes, that is correct.  All of the other topics state that this only occurs with dynamic forms in browser PDF viewers.  I often times see these in Acrobat DC which is confusing for end-users.

"All of the other topics state that this only occurs with dynamic forms in browser PDF viewers.  " This is an apt statement. But this should not create a problem while opening a form in Acrobat. For me both the pdf, you shared opened in Acrobat without any issue.

Thanks.  This must be a result of our Acrobat settings but I am glad the error does not occur for everyone.  Both links give me the error message.

if you want to check some setting specifically related to Acrobat you can drop an email with the query to ecs@adobe.com.
