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.
