Yesterday I attempted to upgrade from Adobe Reader v. 7.0 to v. 10. The install of v. 10 and the removal of v. 7 seemed to go correctly till the very end when I got the following error message:
"Error 1402 Cound not open Key HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\CurrentVersion\Run\OptionalComponents\MSFS. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key or contact your support personnel."
Though the v. 10 install failed, the v. 7 removal seemed to have taken place, as I no longer had v. 7 on my pc. I finally had to restore my system to a point prior to the attempted upgrade. I now appear to have a gimped version of v. 7 back on my system. None of the "help" features seem to work and v. 7 can no longer correctly modify forms (such as IRS tax forms). However, it does work after a fashion.
I am attempting to install Adobe Reader X on a home pc running XP SP3. Anyone know how I can resolve this problem and do a correct install of v. 10.
Thanks for any assistance.
Looks like it was a waste of time to register for this forum. One good thing: I got a link here to a page providing info on other pdf readers. I'll probably go with Foxit as a replacement and see how that works out.
