I recently upgraded to Windows 7 Premium from Vista. When I tired to view/download PDF's from Windows Internet Explorer, I get an error and that the program needs to close. I then tried to unistall Reader 8.1.2 so I can install Reader 9.4 then I get an error that Windows is unable to uninstall due the the fact that it can't find the file called "AdbeRdr812_en_us.msi" I did alot of research but they seem all old and didn't find a solution, can someone please help?
It's the same solution as for any missing or corrupted installer files: download, install, and run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility (http://majorgeeks.com/Windows_Installer_CleanUp_Utility_d4459.html) to remove the 8.1.2 installation.
Once I tried to run the program, I got the following message:
Error: Permission denied
Source: Micrsoft VBScript runtime error
I'm the only user on this computer and always as administrator...
I even tried to delete all Adobe Reader registry files and all its files manually as some of the other suggested but this 8.1.2 is stuck somewhere (can't find it anywhere) in the computer like a leech, it's beyond frustrating...just can't get it off the computer.
Hope someone can help here...
I was able to run the program but I thought the program will ask me like the Unstaller which program to install? It
basically just run and then says finished. When I went back to the Contron Panel and
tried to uninstall Adobe Reader 8.1.2 again, I get the same message and still can't remove the
app. it's still looking for that .msi file. Should I manually uninstall all
Adobe Reader files and then use that Win. Uninstall Cleaner again? Right now I have Reader 9.4 installed just so I can work because I need to read PDFs, does that have to do with unable to remove version 8.1.2?
