    Distribute Adobe Reader

    joe5677 Level 1

      I am working on updating from Win XP to Win 7. I am

      looking for the Adobe reader file so I don't have to continue to download the Adobe Manager, Adobe Reader everytime. I signed up for the distribute Adobe Reader but the link provide only seems to give me exactly what I had before which is to have to download Adobe Manager, Adobe Reader, etc every time. Can some one explain to me where the Adobe Reader file is located.

          Go to the link on the "Thank You"  Web Page.  I just downloaded the actual Adobe Reader 9.3 Installation file from there.

            1. Apparently you

            did not use any of the links from the Adobe Software Distribution Request email from Adobe.

            2. Don't exactly know what a Thank You page was.  I did a search on Thank You Reader and got the Reader download page.

            3. This time I cancelled the Adobe Manager download and at that point I got a click here to download. When I clicked that link I did get the file.


            So I did get the file but I am not clear on the steps to take but it appears one has to cancel the DLM to get to the Reader file.

                I saved the file on my hard disk and then "opened" it with a double click.  Executing the file installs Adobe Reader 9.3 instead of Adobe DLM.




                PS.  Yes, I had to cancel the cancel the DLM installation and click the "Click Here if the File Download doesn't start"" button to get the file.  I haven't done anything with the AdobeForum options.  Most of the Forums I've used have "reasonable" default options.  Maybe the Adobe Reader Forum is different.

                  I wasn't having trouble opening the file. I was having trouble finding it. When I signed up for distribution I expected Adobe to give me a link to the Reader file. Instead Adobe point to back to the same general download page and expect one to figure it out.


                  When I select download Adobe Reader, the first thing Adobe is going to do is download DLM. From there DLM goes directly into downloading  the file itself and I have no access to the Reader file. Therefore one has to either cancel the DLM and select the "select here to download" link or use the link provided by ~graffiti


                  Your answer was helpful in that it pointed me back to the download. However, the answer I was looking for was given by ~graffiti.
