What does UiPath suggest to deal with Adobe version 19 not working?

We recently got started with automating invoice processing with UiPath and we are using Adobe reader DC version 18. The latest version of Adobe reader (19) does not work with UiPath because non-tagged selectors do not work according to UiPath documentation. This is a major problem since Adobe updates itself automatically and it does not seem possible to prevent. I have tried to prevent Adobe from updating but cannot so far. This breaks all UiPath automations that need to read selectors from Adobe.

What does UiPath recommend to get past this problem?

Hi @mtu,
As Adobe wrote on their site:
" IT Administrators can control the update settings using the Adobe Customization Wizard DC or the Windows Registry."

Other way I have in my mind is to:

  1. Block Adobe Updater in firewall
  2. Add update website address to hosts file
