When I got my new computer last year, I was vaguely aware that my Adobe reader did not work, but presumed I only had to download the latest version. I never got round to it as I have had a very hectic year travelling a lot. Now I'm back, I'm finding a lot of issues with Vista!!
Some I managed to sort, but not the Adobe reader issue. I can download it, and when I click on 'install', it seems ok at first but just when it looks like all will be well, it stops and up pops error message 1317.
