Need assistance. Have Reader 8.3.1 and want to uninstall and then install Reader X. When I use the Remove/Install Programs icon it advises the following;
This patch could not be opened. Verify that patch package exists and you can access it, or contact application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows installer patch paskage.
Just want to remove this program and install new version.
