Question about Business & Productivity Software

Adobe Acrobat Reader wants to sell me Adobe Acrobat Reader 8. I already have Adobe Reader 8.1 (which is inadequate for some PDF printouts.) Are these 2 softwares actually the same? Would downloading Adobe Acrobat Reader 8 solve any of my printing problems or not?

How do i download Adobe Acrobat x Standard for Free?

Acrobat reader is free. Acrobat pro is not free.
There are other free programs to create PDF's. Really, Adobe is offering the readers for all systems for free. Be aware sometimes PDF files are password protected. You even can't read them with acrobat reader, if you don't have the password. Just visit the Adobe website to download a free version for your system.
Now you can get the 11 version here:

What error-message(s) do you get when you try?

If you're referring to the _free_ Acrobat Reader,
use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it.
Then, download the latest version of the software from -- most of the updates will already be integrated into the download.

If you're referring to the "full" software (that creates PDF files), find your original software, and license-key. Then, use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it.
Restart your computer.
Reinstall from the media, using the license-key.
Then, do the "check for updates" within the software.

Can't save Adobe Acrobat 9 fillable forms

Fill in an interactive pdf form After you fill in the form fields, do any of the following:
  • Click the submit form button. Clicking this button sends the form data to a database across the web or over your company intranet.
  • In Acrobat, choose File > Save As, and rename the file to save the form with the data you entered.
  • In Reader, choose File > Save A Copy, and specify a location for the copy. Note: If the form author gave Reader users extended rights, the saved copy will include the entries you made in the form. Otherwise, the saved copy will be blank.
Enable Adobe Acrobat Reader users to save form data Ordinarily, Reader users can’t save filled-in copies of forms that they complete. However, you can extend rights to users of Reader 8 and later so they can do so. In Acrobat Pro and Pro Extended, these rights also include the ability to add comments, use the Typewriter tool, and digitally sign the PDF.
  1. Open a single PDF, or preview a component PDF in a PDF Portfolio.
  2. If you are editing the form, click Close Form Editing in the upper-right corner of the form.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • (Acrobat Pro and Pro Extended) Choose Advanced > Extend Features In Adobe Reader.
    • (Acrobat Standard only) Choose Advanced > Extend Forms Fill-In & Save In Adobe Reader.
    These extended privileges are limited to the current PDF. When you create a different PDF form, you must perform this task again to enable Reader users to save their own filled-in copies of that PDF.
If you don’t want recipients to overwrite the blank form template by saving form data, do not extend rights in the copy you send to them.

Limitations on saving filled-in forms locally

Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, and Acrobat Pro Extended each allow Adobe Reader 8 or later users to fill in and save PDF forms locally. The use of the Reader Extensions capability for local saving of PDF forms (called extended documents) is limited in two ways:
Number of deployed extended documents An Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, or Acrobat Pro Extended customer can send an extended document to an unlimited number of recipients for them to fill in. For example, an Acrobat customer can post an empty form template on a web page that allows users to fill in and save PDF forms locally. An unlimited number of people can access the template. However, the Acrobat customer can collect only 500 responses from the filled-in form. This limitation includes both hardcopy (paper form submission) and electronic representations of the filled-in form.
Number of recipients of the extended document An Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, or Acrobat Pro Extended customer can send an extended document to no more than 500 unique recipients. For example, an Acrobat customer belongs to an organization with 500 people or less. The Acrobat customer can send an unlimited number of copies of the extended document to those 500 recipients and collect unlimited responses from the filled-in form.
Both limitations apply per entity/company, and multiple users in an entity cannot abuse this feature. Obtaining additional licenses to use Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, and Acrobat Pro Extended does not increase the above restrictions. For example, five Acrobat Standard 9 users in a company cannot send out the same extended document to receive and extract data collectively more than 500 times.
Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, and Acrobat Pro Extended include technology that can enable PDF documents with certain features by using a digital credential. This credential is located within the Software (“Key”). You agree not to access, attempt to access, control, disable, remove, distribute the Key for any purpose.

I hope it helps.

Office 2007 professional and Adobe 8 Professional problem

Very simple fix. Now and then after an Adobe Acrobat update Office will disable Adobe Acrobat as it is an add on. All you need to do is re-enable Adobe Acrobat. In Office 2007 goto Word Options, Add-ons, and at the bottom of the page is Manage. Click on the down arrow and select Disabled Items and click on GO. Re-enable Acrobat and you should be fine. In Office 2003, goto Help and selects disabled macros and re-enabler Acrobat.
