Adobe Acrobat X can it run in background?

Sun Aug 27, 2017 6:05 pm

So, I'm using Adobe Acrobat X to convert batches of excel spreadsheets into a single PDF. Running this is a bit slow and it opens one sheet at a time to get each image. So, you can't do anything else with the PC while this is going on. Is there a way to make this run in the background either in settings or with a newer version? The Excel is version 2003. I can't go to any higher version due to compatibility with needing to link instrument produced (very old Excel sheets) to make reports.

If you have an extra Windows license you could run it inside a VM.
