I downloaded Adobe Reader 9 successfully as it claimed. But when I try to use it to read PDF I get a box message saying that I need an Adobe Reader 8 or 9. Please help.

Cant open pdf


Make sure only adobe 9 is the only version of adobe reader you have installed on that computer. Then go to where your PDF file is and right click on it with the mouse and go into properties.

In the general tab where it says type of file it will show you what program is opening up the PDF file. Click on the change button and where it says recommended programs see if Adobe reader is there, if its not then down below where it says other programs click on the down arrow and see if adobe reader shows up there. If it shows up in either section then choose it, then click on apply, and then click on okay.

Now if for some reason adobe reader doesn't show up in either section, then you'll need to browse for it. It normally installs itself in the program files folder, then double-click on it and go into the adobe folder, Adobe 9.0 and then the reader folder. The name of the reader program looks something like acrord32 and it will say application to the right of it. At that point choose it and apply the changes so it opens up with Adobe reader.

This should cover everything, if your still having problems, let me know and I'll help you out further.

Cannot use reader 8.0,cannot remove it or install 9.0


oddly enough, you may find that updating the version 8.0 you have to 8.x will then allow you to remove it (or it will work correctly) can you open the reader manually in the programs list? if so open it, then go to help and check for updates. apply the updates. If they work you should be in good shape.

I had adobe 8.1 aND SUCCESSIVELy unistalled it from my laptop but cant install adobe 9 why?


If you are only using Adobe Acrocrap reader do your self a favour and bin the bloated piece of intrusive rubbish.
Use Foxit pdf reader instead.

Foxit reader = download 2.5mb, unpacked and installed 5.5mb
Acrocrap reader = download only 33mb, unpacked and installed (lord knows, probably huge)

You can get foxit for free here:

Unable to read Adobe Reader attachments


If you are saying that you can't read .pdf files? Then go to Adobe.com and click the "get adobe reader" button to download the latest free version.

Good luck.
