Download the utility http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301.
Run it to clean up the Acrobat install
thanks to Appligent Document Solutions for solving my problem
I have had trouble upgrading Adobe Reader 8.1 for many days.
So, I had never deleted previous releases (i.e Release 6/7 or versions either) so I went back and removed all Adobe Reader releases through the Control Panel.
I attempted to load Adobe Reader 8.1.2 and received the following message: Error 1316. A Network error occurred while attempting to read from the file: C:\Windows\Installer\Rdr60ENU.msi
The system backed out all changes and now I am without any Adobe Reader. I do not know what to do as I could not find this error message in the Knowledgebase Search database.
I solved my problem posted above.
I snooped around on other forums and found a similar issue where a someone had a similar problem.
This person was recommended to Google: Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. I did that and got to a Windows site and downloaded this utility. This cleaned up Adobe Reader 6.0 files and I was then able to down load Adobe Reader 9.0.
I appreciate everyone's time in helping all of us.
Mac OS 10.4.11: I could not open pdf docs today (12-24-08), uninstalled & installed Adobe Reader 9.0.0. pdf docs icons changed but open, however cannot open Reader from Applications and get: Adobe Reader
Then immediately get this error message:
Adobe Reader could not install correctly.
Adobe Reader was unable to install a necessary component
and must quit.
Any help out there for me?
worked perfectly first time, many thanks
I removed all Reader programs but received an error message that there was a copy of Reader 8.1.2 on "a network resource that is unavailable."
I used a program called Absolute Uninstaller to remove it. After I downloaded Reader 9 and tried to install it I received this message: The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable." I cannot get Reader 9 to work no matter what I do.
Does anyone have a solution?
