I have a problem when I try to use Adobe reader (v8.1.1). When I click on a pdf file an error message comes up - "AcroRd32.exe - Unable To Locate Component" - "This application has failed to start because MSVCP80.dll was not found.".
I have tried -
Re-installing Adobe Reader,
Searching for this .dll file and successfully finding it,
Downloading a new copy of said .dll file and replacing the existing one,
Running registry mechanic and the replacing the file once more for good measure.
Unfortunately none of this works. I only use Adobe for reading Heroes graphic novels. As the TV series is highly unlikely to resume until next season it is the only fix I can get however limited. And no it wouldn't help to use the interactive version as my internet connection is terrible to put it mildly.
I have also done a few searches on this forum and found no similar articles. <sigh>
I look forward to hearing any ideas, gday and happy surfin'
