Have you tried changing your file associations though the Operating System (it varies from one OS to the other so check
the "help" options in your particular OS)?
I don't know how to change the file associations through OS . can you help me with that?
I have no idea what OS you are running.
Am I reading your post right? Do you have Reader and Acrobat 9 installed? If so, you may want to uninstall both, run the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility to get rid of all left over traces, then reinstall only one of them. If you have both installed, changing your associations may not work at all.
It is not recommended to have two products like that installed on the same machine.
Again, do you have Reader and Acrobat 9 installed?
I currently only have Adobe Reader 9 installed.
I did uninstalled Adobe and Acrobat, run a registry clean up....then installed Adobe Reader 9.
but still not working.
Very strange that everytime i open the program from Start-->Adobe-->Adobe Reader 9, then it starts install Reader.....it says please wait while Adobe install, it takes another 2 minutes then it opens.
If I open by double click on the.pdf file, it then ask what program do you want to open this file. I selected Adobe Reader 9, then it opens without any installation windows.
I would try uninstalling Reader again then run the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility and get rid of all traces of Reader. Then reinstall it.
