It's the same solution as for any missing or corrupted installer files: download, install, and run the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility (http://majorgeeks.com/Windows_Installer_CleanUp_Utility_d4459.html) to remove the 8.1.2 installation.
Thanks. I did exactly that but after I downloaded that app. I was
not able to run it.
What happened when you tried?
Once I tried to run the program, I got the following message:
Error: Permission denied
Source: Micrsoft VBScript runtime error
I'm the only user on this computer and always as administrator...
I even tried to delete all Adobe Reader registry files and all its files manually as some of the other suggested but this 8.1.2 is stuck somewhere (can't find it anywhere) in the computer like a leech, it's beyond frustrating...just can't get it off the computer.
Hope someone can help here...
That error - do you get it when you try to install the program, or when you try to run the installed program?
Can you try to right-click on the program and run it "As Administrator"?
I was able to run the program but I thought the program will ask me like the Unstaller which program to install? It
basically just run and then says finished. When I went back to the Contron Panel and
tried to uninstall Adobe Reader 8.1.2 again, I get the same message and still can't remove the
app. it's still looking for that .msi file. Should I manually uninstall all
Adobe Reader files and then use that Win. Uninstall Cleaner again? Right now I have Reader 9.4 installed just so I can work because I need to read PDFs, does that have to do with unable to remove version 8.1.2?
Problem solved! I didn't install Windows Install Cleaner properly. Thank you for following up this problem with me!!!
Great to hear that! This one really puzzled me...
