anyone know anything about this?
Is there anywhere adobe will respond to this question?
I've read all their information, but they seem to ignore this point completely.
> anyone know anything about this?
Sure. It's not advised nor supported to have both installed. You're seeing one of the very many reasons why.
>Is there anywhere adobe will respond to this question?
Probably not unless you call tech support. Not for free at any rate.
>I've read all their information, but they seem to ignore this point completely.
I don't have the link handy but it is somewhere on their site.
Yes. Un-install both then reinstall the one you want to use.
If I understand the replies, once I install Acrobat, Reader is no longer available.
I'm thinking Kirby or Hoover!

Worse. It becomes unpredictable which one you get.
The problem w/ acrobat is that it takes forever to load
I was going to just use reader to read documents, and acrobat to edit, so I could gut reader of all the plugins worthless for 99.9999 of pdfs I use and it'll load fast.
foxit is nice, but won't open in-browser despite their continuing claims of supporting this feature.
That's so bizarre that adobe won't allow you to choose which one you want to run. Its installed as sepperate programs on the uninstall list, on the "open with" context menu, and w/ file associations, so why would it not be possible to only open pdf links w/ one?
Maybe its time to abandon acrobat and just use reader. There's much cheaper programs w/ all the same functionality as acrobat, so I guess I'll move on to those.
If anyone else has suggestions feel free to make em.

And if you remove some older version AFTER installing something
newer, you might put holes in the newer. Thus the recommended
process of removing all, and installing a single desired one.

I suspect you have all you're going to get here. Multiple versions
is simply a bugga-boo.
