Hi, I am not sure, but I am using "Uninstall" and "Install" again.
If you cannot uninstall Adobe Reader explicitly (or implicitly), use the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to remove all current installations of Adobe Reader, then try the install again.
*Download from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
*Install the downloaded package
*Run it from Start -> Programs -> Windows Install Clean Up
*Select 'Adobe Reader', then click on Remove
Hello Rudi and Pat,
Thank you very much, I have unistalled and then installed again as yuo suggested and I've resolved my problem.
Hi, I want to know whether i need to uninstall adobe reader 8.1.3 before i install adobe reader 9. can the two version coexist?
seems adobe didn't want us to uninstall version 8.1.3 before we download and install version 9(please check out the following address):
Anybody help? whether we need to uninstall adobe reader 8.1.3 before we install adobe reader 9.'
Thank you very much.
>seems adobe didn't want us to uninstall version 8.1.3 before we download and install version 9(please check out the following address):
Actually, that's not what that link says. They want you to close Reader 8.x before installing 9. Primarily so that 9 can uninstall 8.x.
>can the two version coexist?
It's not recommended to have both no.
can 9 uninstall 8.x?
thank you very much.
Yes. It WILL uninstall 8.
thank you. seems a lot of user comment that adobe reader 9 crash on their computer( Helmut Leininger, "Adobe reader 9 plugin crashes" #, 9 Jul 2008 7:50 am), i don't know whether 9 is stable, should i update to 9, or just stick to 8.x?
I never had any problems with Adobe Reader 9. However if you decide to upgrade to 9, make sure that you download the latest version 9.1
P.S. on some older computers with less power, I keep Adobe Reader 8.1.3
