Cannot open Reader on Desktop - click the icon and nothing happens


If you mean Adobe Reader, then either the shortcut has lost the information on what file it is associated with or Adobe Reader is no longer on the computer. If you recently transferred to a new computer using the Windows Transfer Wizard, the shortcut may be pointing to a different version folder or to a not yet installed program. Remember the Transfer Wizard does not install the programs and doesn't transfer the registry information about installed software from the old computer.

For Windows:
First, right click on the icon and then click on Properties. That will give you the location and name of the program it is associated with (as it was created). For example: on my Win7 32-bit machine this reads "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe". Next open the Control Panel Programs list, see if Adobe Reader is listed. (For Win7, this is Start > Control Panel > Programs. WinXP, look for the Add and remove programs section.) Open Computer (My computer) and navigate to C:\Program Files. See if you have an Adobe Folder and then the reader folder location. (If the folder exists, check for the exe file and if that full folder name matches the one for the shortcut.)

If Adobe Reader isn't installed, go to http://www.adobe.com and follow the link on the right hand side to download and install Adobe Reader. Then remove the bad shortcut since a new one will be added to the desktop.

If you have Adobe Reader installed but the shortcut isn't pointing to the correct location, you can create a new shortcut by right clicking on the exe and choosing create a shortcut. Before you do this, double click on the reader.exe and check that it does launch. Otherwise, uninstall and reinstall the program.

I hope this helps.

try to completely UNINSTALL your adobe reader program. Then reinstall it. If the problem persists, uninstall the program again (Adobe reader) and delete the Adobe Reader folder in your Program Files folder. Then reinstall.

I've tried downloaded updated versions of adobe reader; have done so, but there are older versions which now interfere. I'm unable to open any version at this time. Can you help?


The only recommendation i could make for you is just uninstall the previous versions then re-install the one version you would like to use...That's the only solution I know so far...

This is a nice little FREE utility you can try. Install Microsoft "Windows Installer CleanUp Utility" http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/en-us
If you find (PROGRAM NAME) listed just hit the delete button.
This will take care of the MSI problem.
Then do the normal Uninstall.
Uninstall Adobe Reader, do a search for all "Adobe" files and delete them. Go to the Adobe website and install the newest Adobe Reader 8.1 program.
http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
CLEAN INSTALL needed here.
This time after the Uninstall, shut down completely for at least 30 seconds, and then restart.
Then do a search for 'all files and folders' - search for both 'Adobe' and then '7.0', with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those related files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you Uninstall any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when re-installing or updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)
BEFORE RE-INSTALLING Adobe 8.1 it's the NEW VERSION!
Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling.
