Solution to solve Adobe Reader Error 117

Solution 2: Configure your software firewall
Software firewalls limit access to your computer. Some software firewalls warn you when a program tries to access the Internet. Users have reported instances where software / hardware firewall settings have resulted in download errors.
- If prompted, select to allow the Adobe application to access the Internet.
- If you are not prompted, temporarily disable the software firewalls to determine if they prevent access to the Internet. See the documentation for your firewall software for help.
Solution 3: Disable the antivirus software
Temporarily disable your antivirus software, then restart the download.
Solution 4: Start your system in safe mode with networking
Restart the machine in safe mode with networking, and then restart the download.
Solution 5: Check the configuration of your router
Routers can have an integrated hardware firewall or proxy servers. To determine if a router is preventing the Adobe application from accessing the Internet:
- Temporarily remove the router from the network.
- Connect the computer directly to a DSL or cable modem. If the download continues, the router prevents access.
- To configure a router to allow access for future downloads, see your router documentation for instructions on configuring port forwarding from the computer. You can also contact your Internet service provider or IT department.
