I installed adobe acrobat reader professional 8
First, you either have Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 Or Adobe Reader 8. Acrobat Reader Professional 8 does not exist.
If you have Acrobat, we'll try and work this out. If you have Reader, you don't get either of those items since it's made for viewing/printing PDF's.
My suggestion is to open the application you installed then go to the Help dropdown and see whether it says Acrobat or Reader. Also, be sure you don't have both products installed since that could cause similar issues as this.
sorry i wrote it wrong , i have acrobat pro 8 not reader pro 8 ! and i dont have Reader installed at all.
But i did have adobe reader 9 installed , but i uninstalled it before starting the Pro 8 installer.
Have you tried repairing the installation?
Help>Repair Acrobat installation.
With AA8, you will have to update the program to have any luck with Win7. You probably need AA8.1 as a minimum. Also, did you install as the administrator and did you have anti-virus turned off when you installed. These options can all impact the installation and performance. Only AA9 is certified for Win7, but several folks have gotten AA8 to work. You may have to play around a bit to get things to work. PDF Maker in OFFICE 2007 definitely requires a newer version of AA8 from 8.0.
ok i will try to
update and then try the repair the installation option as well
i did not turn off the anti-virus but i did run as administrator.
its late tonight but i will try once i get to work tomorrow
