Where are you trying to download from?
I finally have given up and am looking into buying another company's software just so I can open up PDF files.
Why? There are many free options for viewing PDF's. In fact, I'm not aware of any PDF viewers that cost anything.
wondering also if you are downloading the installer programs, but not getting them installed?!?

Thanks for your reply....FYI...I was trying to download from www.adobe.com on
the specific page that has downloads of your products. As far as the
alternate source is concerned I am not totally sure what the capabilities it has as
I am recovering from a hospital stay and had to send my wife to retailer to
pick this up because I am accessing email from home until I return to work and
need something to work now. I don't yet have the SW. (I would have had her
buy the actual Adobe Pro 9.0 -- but it is a wapping $499 and change).

I also sent my note of amplfying details to this same email address. But to
your specific question. I thought I was downloading the actual product. On
your product download page -- there was a large yellow box to click on
stating "Download Now". There was no indication of downloading an "installer"
first. However, I appreciate your interest in looking into this.
It just strkes me computers/IT/network systems are so complicated these days
the average person even with advanced degrees has to spend hours trouble
shooting stuff to get it working.. And failing that they have to contact their
"Help Desk" if at work or pay these small local "home PC fix-it" shops hundreds

Unfortunately, you did post to the public forum. These fora are new and a little confusing. Definitely a step down from the ones we had a couple of days ago.
At any rate, try downloading Reader (if you only need to view PDF's) from http://get.adobe.com/reader/.
The Acrobat trial is limited anyhow. It's only good for 30 days from your original download. Then they want you to purchase it.
Foxit has another PDF viewer if you can't get Reader working.
I have Adobe reader and my family have their own account on our computer. I am the only one who can't get into Adobe reader. I thought maybe I had problem and tried to install again to correct the problem but I keep getting error message saying "Error 1606. Could not access network location %appdata%\" I had used the fourm on Window and still no solution. Was told to try Adobe fourm to get an solution.
Please open a new topic for a new problem, rather than "hijacking" a topic with a different problem. Things are getting very confusing when mixing different problems in the same topic/thread.
I know what you mean as I am facing the very same problem. I just not able to download any Free PDF Reader. I wrote to Customer Support also but have not been able to resolve the problem. Anyone out there who can HELP ME. Regards, Sharon Solomon
Please follow the link Pat Willener has given you as follows
I was able to download PDF Reader from this link thank to him.
All the Best, Sharon
