I'm trying to update to the latest version of Adobe Reader, but having a bit of trouble doing so. When I attempt to run the installer, it asks for permission, then the installer icon disappears from the desktop and nothing happens. The installer shows up as a running process, and is located in the AppData\Local\Temp folder, but doesn't seem to run. I get the same result when I run the .exe from the downloading site, and with other Adobe versions (9 and 10, but I want to install 11). I removed the older version I had with Revo, and now I'm stuck without Reader. I'm running a 32-bit OS.


Any recommendations?

I prefer Foxit Reader, it's less bloated.

I agree with petewilis, is a much nicer program.


But if you are intent on using Adobe try unistalling it under Programs and Feature in the Control Panel.  Then download the latest version.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

PDF X-Change Viewer is another good choice.  There's a the portable version too. :thumbup2:
