Hi

Adobe did not release any update or patch for Acrobat reader 7 to be used for vista. thats why you need to go for Acrobat Reader8.

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.

Adobe reader


Users of Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat can fix this flaw by updating to Adobe Reader 8.0. For users that cannot upgrade to version 8, they should upgrade to version 7.9 to protect them from this flaw.
For more information on this security issue, and steps to prevent problems, please visit the following page on Adobe's site.

For website operators, Adobe has also release workarounds to prevent the cross-site scripting vulnerability. You can find more information on these workarounds by visiting the following link.

As an alternative to Adobe Reader, you may want to download the Foxit PDF Reader, a fantastic, fast and free PDF reader program.

Each time I click Acrobat Reader 5.0, I get a message "There is a problem with Adobe Reader. Please exit and try again". As soon as I exit, the system works. I am using Windows Vista SP1.


I don't believe that Acrobat Reader 5 is compatible with Windows Vista. You really should update to the newest version, which is 9.

You should be able to get it here.

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.
