Well, I need to complete my thought, I guess... sorry :)
Then, I searched the Internet about the topic and found something similar... Acrobat Elements 6.0 would NOT work with Reader 7.0. The solution would be to uninstall both and install Elements first, then install Reader 7.0 in Adobe 6.0 folder. I guess it would do the same with Reader 9.0. Am I correct? If so, how to do it? The downloading and installation process is done in only one click (no options available). PLEASE HELP!!!
This is exactly the same issue that I have (Acrobat Elements 6.0 no longer works). I uninstalled all my Readers and tried to re-install Reader 9.0 so that I could put it in the Adobe 6.0 folder -- but the installation process doesn't allow that option. Does anyone know how to do that?
I have a solution now. First I uninstalled Reader 9.0 again. Then I installed an archived version of Reader 6.0.1 from this German web site: http://de.web-blaster.org/www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=acrobat (the default placement of the program in the Acrobat 6.0 folder is fine). Then I reinstalled Reader 9.0 and let it create its own destination folder. Now if I just open a PDF then Reader 9.0 is used. But if I create a PDF with Elements 6.0 then Reader 6.0.1 is used.
There is no reason to use a non-Adobe site to download old versions of
reader. They are all available on the ftp and the most recent versions
of the nearly each older version is available on the website.
Downloading from a third party-site you cannot tell what you will end up
Agreed. I looked on the Adobe site first, but every time I thought I had a link to the old version of Reader, I was redirected to the latest version. Guess I wasn't looking in the right place -- perhaps you could post here?

Simply go to the Reader download page and choose an older OS until you find the version you need.
For ftp:<br /><br /><ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/> or<br /><br /><ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/acrobatreader> for early versions of <br />Acrobat Reader.<br /><br />For http, you need to select the last version of the OS that the version <br />of Reader worked on when asked to enter you OS. The ftp site is much <br />easier. It has every version in almost every language. Look for enu for <br />the universal English versions.<br /><br />Mike
How do I stop post of
Photoshop Elements coming
to my computer after I deleted it?
