While preparing taxes at Taxact.com, using IE 9 via Windows Vista OS, attempts to call up forms, view/print the return, etc, all redirect to Reader which returns Error 1606: then something like :Unable to to find %appdata%/. It redirects to Windows where it says a solution to the problem exists and to download the updates. The download works but subsequently fails on install. Attempts to uninstall Reader ver 8.1.3 through the windows Control Panel fail with the same error messages. Attempts to manually remove the Reader ver 8.1.3 fail. Attempts to load the updates fail. So I'm stuck with a bunch of applications that rely on Reader to display forms that don't work anymore and all attempts to correct the problem fail. Anyone else seen this?
IE 9 is not released yet so nothing can be said about why this is happenning but i think reader 9.3 will work fine with it if not reader 8.1.3
You can download reader 9.3 from http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Thank you for your input, Malik. The IE ver I use is 8 not 9 (typo). I would load the new version of Reader 9.2 or 9.3, but the Reader ver 8.1.3 will not uninstall to allow for the ver 9 installation. Any attempt to access the Adobe Folders results in the same Error 1606. Any more Ideas, I've tried everything I know short of reformatting the hard drive and reloading it from scratch...a chore I would like to avoid. Thanks
