I have removed Adobe Air, and Adobe DLM from my system. I am trying to install the Reader on a Windows 7 machine. I keep getting the following error message.
windows installer does not permit patching of managed advertised products At least one feature of the product must be installed before aplying the patch.
I have restarted my pc and made sure no adobe products are installed but to no avail. Can anyone help?
Are you running the installation from an Administrator account?
If not, try downloading this installer http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/9.x/9.3.3/enu/AdbeRdr933_en_US.exe, save it to a location on your disk, then right-click on it and select 'Run as Administrator'.
I had the same problem with 9.3.3. I installed a previous version and then installed 9.3.3 and it worked fine. Previously I had uninstalled the previous version (9.3) before trying to install 9.3.3 and that is when I got the patch error.
