Download of Reader 8.3 and 10 works OK. Cannot get installation of either past ~44% complete. Tried multiple times with:
Firefox 6.0.1 and Internet Exp
all other programs turned off
My OS: Windows XP Home with SP3
My computer: 2.17 gH, 448Mb RAM, 110G available.
Is Adobe trying to tell me they do not like my dial-up connection? Any other ideas? Help! I need to read PDF files.
OK - here is the result of your link: it was different, but still no installation.
Reader 8.3.0 download went OK. Installation/Setup choked at
Error attempting to read from the source installation database:
This resulted in:
"Setup was interrupted before Adobe Reader 8.3.0 could be completely installed.
Your system has lnot been modified. To complete the installation at another time, please run setup again."
On checking my C: drive I found no Windows\Installer subdirectory. Any thoughts?
OK - for anyone following this saga: the problem has been cured.
Using Claudio's link (you IT guys have your mysterious ways - this link was not available from http://www.adobe.com/downloads page) and downloading v.10 (v.8 downloaded earlier did not work either from Claudio's link), Reader X installation was successful.
It's nice to have my PDF files back.
