I have dealt with this before, I am not making a joke. Did you install it after you downloaded it? I have had about 30 service calls for this they had downloaded not installed.

ALSO make sure that the CD is not dirty or damaged.

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 am having trouble printing with adobe/acrobat reader. can i take it off my computer and install adobe 9? if so how??


You can certainly uninstall any older version of Adobe Reader and install latest Adobe Acrobat Reader. Download the latest version from Adobe Website for free.

Unable to download pdf file


You need to update your reader. Go to the www.adobe.com/acrobat site and locate the dowlnload file for the latest version

Uninstall your current reader.

Turn off all running programs including your virus control while you download and install the new software.

Restart your computer.

Adobe Acrobat 8 error 2711


Sounds menacing but it’s fairly easy to fix.
Heres how to fix it:
  1. Download msicuu2.exe (Windows Install Cleanup Utility) from Microsoft, or by clicking on the file name.
  2. Run msicuu2.exe
  3. You will then get a message asking if you wish to roll back the in progress installation. You do.
  4. Install Adobe Acrobat or Reader 8.

Adobe’s more intrusive way of fixing it:
  1. Click Start>Run, type in regedit then hit enter or press ok.
  2. Back up your registry (not actually mentioned by adobe but a good idea whenever you’re about to make changes to the registry)
  3. Look for Key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\Inprogress
    and delete the key if it exists.
  4. Install Adobe Acrobat or Reader 8.
