There may be someone able to help you but first you need to provide more detailed information.

What version of Altiris ?

What version of virtualisation client?

What version of Adobe reader?

How was the virtualisation package created?

What operating system?

32 bit or 64 bit?

Thanks for your response!

Altiris version:7.1.8400 

virtualization client : 6.4.1346

Adobe reader version : 9.4

Symantec Workspace Virtualization Admin version : 6.1 sp7 6.4.1266

All virtualization packages are created by Symantec Workspace Virtualization Admin. And we set them to be activated automatically when the OS boot. We have more than 20 thousand clients here. Not only Adobe Reader but also other software such as Catia(v5 19 sp6) encountered the same error.

Client operating system:windows xp sp2、windows xp sp3、win7,all 32 bit

It would be worth updating a currently problematic machine to the latest client, which is mentioned in this thread:

Do you have local or roaming profiles?

Once a user is logged in, are you then able to activate the software that is failing on boot?

...isn't that the same version as referenced by AngelD in the thread I mentioned ?  Or does SP8 MP2 refer to a different release?

(In other words, would it not make better sense to use a SIMPLER versioning methodology such as x.yy instead of x.yy.zz.SPi.Mpj )

SP8 MP2 has the 6.4.1895.0 version.

I would suggest that you upgrade a couple of computers and see how that affects the issue you have.
