LC 9.02 Problems when displaying local PDF in stack

I had the same problem as you, and I used the Adobe Unistaller Program to remove all traces of Adobe Acrobat. This worked for me. You could try to reinstall Acrobat and then use the Uninstaller to remove it again. This has done the trick for me at times when I simply cannot find the file(s) causing the problem.

Best regards

I suspect that the root cause is the newish Adobe Acrobat Reader DC which I briefly tried while attempting to solve an unrelated problem with a PDF file.  This was the app that was inserting its self into my apps revBrowser control,  I have removed Acrobat Reader DC and downloaded the Adobe cleaner app but my instance of revBrowser still requests that I locate Adobe Acrobat and fails to display the local PDF file.  I have also experimented with the Browser widget and get the same result when running LC 9.02.

I also suspect there is a subtle buffering problem when running the same code in LC 8 and earlier as the app stops displaying PDFs after a source file is moved; I am still experimenting to see if I can determine exactly what is causing the problem.
