I suddenly could not print from Adobe. I tried to remove Adobe 8.1.2 in the Add/Remove program, but it would not process it. it could not find the patch associated with Adobe 8.1.2. I then physically deleted it. I tried to install a new version, both from the net directly, and by downloading then installing, and in both cases i received the error message that "the older version for adobe 8.1.2 cannot be removed". I need to file my taxes and use the internet with pdf file. Help would be greatly appreciated
Deleting files will not uninstall the product. Use the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301 ) to remove the remains of the 8.1.2 installation, then retry to install the other version.
