What version is the Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer? If it is version 9 and you are trying to see the user guide from within a browser window (like Internet Explorer), you will have problems because of a known issue with Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.

Tried both solutions adobe flash player 10 still failed to register


You may need the latest Java Updates. Go to www.sun.com and download the latest Java Console to your computer. After installation, try to download Adobe Flash Player again. If it does not work then your operating system may not be compatiable with Adobe Flash Player 10. You may need to download an older version such as Adobe Flash Player 9.

You can find older versions of Adobe Flash Player such as 9 on www.cnet.com type in the search field (adobe flash player 9). After the options show up, choose the file to download and install.

Be sure to check your available memory and system speed which are also factors when installing flash software.

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.

Try to revome the old version by yourself, after that instal the new one.
If that dosent work, try to reinstal an old version first, then uninstal the same and instal the new one.
Seen this problem before, and one of the solutions obove should work for you.

Good luck

When trying to open adobe reader 8.1.1 get following message: patch package could not be opened. verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify...


it sounds like the application that is needed to uninstall the version 8 is corrupted or missing. Try reinstalling version 8 first then uninstall it before loading version 9. If you can reinstall version 8 and it asks you if you want to repair or install, choose install to get all of the files back before uninstalling it again. Always uninstall from add/remove programs. If deleting it from program files instead of uninstalling it correctly it will cause problems.

When I try to open a pdf file, the icon is different and does not open in Adobe, but in MS Word 2007, which of course is does not open properly. This computer (Gateway M6752 laptop)has Vista Home Premium,...


Hey mrbickham,

In some instances, updating existing software or installing new programs onto your computer can cause issues such as what you have encountered. Fortunately, re-associating .PDF files with Adobe Acrobat Reader instead of MS Word 2007 may be all that you need to do. Most versions of Windows allow users to select the program they want to use to open any given file type, and can usually be done by following the steps I’ve provided below.

1) Right-click on the .PDF file icon.

2) Choose "Open With" from the menu that appears.

3) When you highlight the “Open With” option a submenu should appear. Click on the link in this menu that says “Choose Program.”

4) Another window should then open, providing a list of the available programs on your computer. Choose Adobe Acrobat Reader from the menu and check the box next to it.

5) At the bottom of the page there should also be an option that says something similar to "Always use this program to open this file type." Make sure that this option is enabled.

6) Click "OK."

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
