I just got a notice that a "new" update was avialable for Acrobat Reader.
I tried to install the update for my version (v 8.2! -- don't know why I never got any notices of subsequent updates/versions), but the update to 8.22 failed several times. So I got the update from the download are and that installed successfully.
However, when I noticed that there have been several updates, I also tried to download the 16 MB version 9.1. But clicking "download now" wouldn't generate a download window. Instead, I was taken to a download page for the CURRENT version of Acrobat -- the 32 MB v 9.3 that includes AIR). This page offers no option to download other versions though the header for the page actually states that it's a page for the Current and "older versions".
Any ideas on why I'm encountering this problem and where I can actually download version 9.1....or how I can get 9.3 WITHOUT AIR?
You can't get with out AIR. you could uninstall it afterwards.
i believe there is switch you could user when installing it to diable the AIR. I have it disabled at work, but I'm also
packaging it for mass deployment to 7000 machines. Check out appdeploy.com
If you don't want AIR and Acrobat.com you need to get the .msi and download the custom wizard and make an .mst file and run those. Quite fun. Or like I ssaid just run the set up and uninstall those features.
To the best of my knowledge, Adobe Reader 9.3 does not contain Adobe AIR (9.1 did!).
You can download any version of Adobe Reader from the Adobe FTP site ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/ - drill down from your OS platform, then select the version you want.
