You might want to save other users some time and either say which post it was, or tell us the answer.
The solution that I tried and that is working so far was "Solution 3: Run the application as administrator (Windows Vista)*"
*Apparently, this works for Windows 7, as well -- which was my initial question
The directions are here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/404/kb404918.html
...and this is the summary:
- Navigate to the program folder of the program you want to run. For example, C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 8.0\Acrobat.
- Right-click the program icon (the .exe file).
- Choose Properties.
- On the Compatibility tab, select the Run This Program As An Administrator option.
- Click OK.
- If you see a User Account Control prompt, accept it.
This sounds like you need to change some permissions, though. Not sure if it's the registry as decribed in the other thread, or just the permissions onthe Adobe folders in your user profile.
