I've been trying for ages to install the latest Adobe Reader 9.1 with the same result:
Error 1303. The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory C:\ProgrammeData\Adobe. The installation cannot continue. Log on as an administrator or contact your system administrator. [Retry] [Cancel]
Retry returns the same error message ad infinitum, and cancel aborts the installation completely.
I'm using a laptop running Vista Home Premium, and am the only user / administrator with full permission over the whole system.
Can someone please offer me a solution?
Try using the CCleaner program, (the Bottom Link), to clean up Cache First Than in the same program run the Registry cleaner...
After you have done this Download a fresh install from the Adobe download link above...(the Top Link)
When you have downloaded and completed the Install you can upgrade by opening the Adobe Reader Program and click on the HELP Tab, and then the UPDATE tab in the Drop Down Menu...This will give you 9.1.3 Adobe Reader...
PS Be sure to temporarily turn off Firewall and Antivirus to get a clean download and Install..
Best of luck.
