Adobe Acrobat Reader

Acrobat-plus.com 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?

My adobe acrobat reader was working yesterday but today it said the adobe acrobat reader that is running can not be used to veiw pdf files adobe acrobat reader 8 or 9 is required but that is what i have on...


Ensure that you only have one version of Adobe Acrobat installed. I've found that often enough, if Reader and the full version of Acrobat are installed at the same time, it can cause problems like these.

If that is the case, try uninstalling Reader, so that only Acrobat Standard remains.

What is acrobat reader?


Adobe Acrobat is a family of computer programs developed by Adobe Systems, designed to view, create, manipulate and manage files in Adobe's

Plug-in from Adobe. It reads documents in PDF format on any platform.


A program from Adobe that lets you capture a document and then view it in its original format and appearance


Adobe has changed the names of the products in the Acrobat family regularly, also splitting-up, joining, or discontinuing products. Between version 3 and 5, Standard and Professional versions were one product simply called Adobe Acrobat.
As of October 2009[update], the current main members of the Adobe Acrobat family are:
64px-adobe_reader.svg.png magnify-clip.pngAdobe Reader 8/9 Icon
  • Adobe Reader 9 (Windows, Mac and Unix)
  • Adobe Acrobat 9 (Windows & Mac only; no Unix version)
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended (includes Adobe Presenter)

The latest version
Version 9.0 Adobe Acrobat 9.0 was released July 2008:[10][11]
  • PDF version 1.7 (and prior) supported. There are Adobe extensions to PDF 1.7 for Acrobat 9.
  • Product Family includes: Acrobat Standard 9 (Windows only), Acrobat Pro 9, Acrobat Pro Extended 9 (Windows only).
  • Pro Extended Version includes Adobe Presenter and the features of Acrobat 3D.
  • The ability to create Acroforms was restored to Acrobat Standard in this release (in versions 6 through 8, Acrobat Professional was required).
  • Enable real-time collaboration of PDFs with synchronized document views and chat.
  • Improved Web Capture for capturing entire web pages or just some parts into PDF.
  • Integration with acrobat.com to enable storage and sharing of PDF files.
  • Personalize a PDF Portfolio with customizable templates for navigation and branding.
  • Compare and highlight the differences between two versions of a PDF document.
  • Insert FLV (Flash) or H.264 video for direct playback in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.
  • Convert a variety of video formats to FLV for playback in PDF.
  • Create PDF maps by importing geospatial files that retain metadata and coordinates.
  • OCR PDFs (Paper Capture) using ClearScan. Adobe ClearScan technology creates custom Type1-CID fonts to match the visual appearance of a scanned document after optical character recognition (OCR). ClearScan does not replace the fonts with your system fonts or substitute them by Type1-MM (as in Acrobat 8 and earlier versions), but uses these newly created custom fonts. The custom fonts are embedded in the PDF file (this is obviously mandatory). If the OCR does not recognize a word with enough confidence, then the image (bitmap) of the word is shown in the PDF and the text is put above but hidden (same as what is made in "Searchable Image" mode).
  • Adobe Reader 9 drops support for Adobe Reader Extensions 5 and 6 which permit Adobe Reader client software to save changes to filled-in forms in PDFs. Adobe Reader Extensions 6.1 and newer are still supported. Legacy PDFs will still be viewable, however they will open with the warning "This document enables Reader capabilities that are no longer enabled in this Reader version."[12]
  • On March 10, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1 was released which addresses a number of customer workflow issues and a critical security vulnerability while providing more stability.[13]
  • On May 12, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[14]
  • On June 9, 2009, update version 9.1.2 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[15]
  • On July 31, 2009, update version 9.1.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[16]
  • On October 14, 2009, Adobe Acrobat 9.2 was released (added support for Windows 7 x86/x64 and fixed many security issues).[17]
  • On January 12, 2010, Adobe Reader 9.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[18]
  • On February 16, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[19]
  • On April 13, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.2 was released which addresses several critical security vulnerabilities.[20]

My system has adobe 9.1 but when i want to open some pdf it still says version 8 or 9 required


It sounds like you may have more than one version of Adobe Reader and/or Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer (not recommended) and the system is probably confused about which one to use when opening a .pdf document.
Right-click any .pdf file located on your system, and then, click Open With and then click Choose Default Program.
15f277b.jpg

In the window that opens, select the program that you want your system to use when you open a .pdf file (in your case it should be Adobe Reader 9.1). It *should* be listed under the Recommended Programs section but if it is not then you will need to use the Browse button in order to located Adobe Reader on your system. If the correct program is already selected, then I suggest you unselect it and then reselect it. Make sure the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" check-box is checked. Then hit the OK button.
As stated earlier, it is not recommended (and not supported) for you to have more than one version of Adobe Reader installed at a time. You should do the following if the above solution does not work for you:
In Windows, go to Start Button > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program
Look through the list of your installed programs for Adobe Acrobat and/or Adobe Reader. Uninstall them both (if you have more than one installed) then download and run the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility to remove all traces of Acrobat Reader.
Now re-install your latest version of Acrobat Reader only.

I have adobe 8 on my pc but can't open. keep ask me serial number


Software that comes bundled with your computer is usually trial-ware, meaning it will only work for a certain number of days and then ask you to pay for it.

If you want, you can download Adobe Reader for free at: http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Personally, I recommend Foxit PDF reader, found here: http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/reader/download.php

It's faster and doesn't overload your computer.

Both of these programs only display PDF files - you can't create new PDFs with them, but it doesn't sound like you need to anyway (Most people don't).
