Try the following sequence
*download and run Windows Installer Cleanup Utility, then remove the 8.x installer components
*reinstall Adobe Reader 8.x
*uninstall Adobe Reader 8.x
*install Adobe Reader 9.0
The Windows Installer Cleanup Utility just removes installer information, not the Adobe Reader 8.x installation itself. Reinstalling and uninstalling 8.x will remove 8.x completely.
Thanks, Pat Willener!
I have great confidence your suggestion will help solve my Adobe Reader 9 installation problem. Unfortunately, after about two hours of poking around on Microsoft.com, etc., I could not find a single reference that told me where to find the "Windows Installer Cleanup Utility," so I struck out. I'm also not sure just how I would go about removing only the installer portion of Adobe Reader 8.x. Pretty sad, huh?
I'm only semi computer literate, so if you would reply a second time and point me in the right direction, I would sure appreciate it. Thanks again.
