I have win xp, newer computer, lots of space and memory;
I have the free adobe and I must be set up for automatic updates and when I get this message to update to adobe reader 7.0.5, it says

"the feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavaialble"

"click ok to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'adobe reader 7.0 msi' in the box below'"

and in the box below it says:


I have no idea what's going on!!
I have tried this on several occasions
I have no other computer problems or problems with other applications
I never put adobe anywhere special if that's what they're talking about
I have nothing open when I've tried this also

thanks! : )

Hi again help!

There is a similar problem here forum page.

I'd suggest you uninstall Adobe Reader from Add & Remove Programs and either download a later version, if there is one, or look for alternatives to read .pdf files.

jgweed has recommended Foxit from here.
