Windows 7: Could not find Adobe Acrobat error

14 Apr 2009   #11


You should *really* read that thread I linked....

I cannot vouchsafe one way or another about Foxit, but with other products bundled with Ask, just b/c you untick does not mean it does *not* get installed.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Ive checked installed programs, checked program files and manage Add-ons in IE and nothings there. No short cut to ask was installed either.

As with any of these dodgy installers, the offending bits can be removed after installation and you can continue using the main program.

Again, it is hte philosophy behind the developer's rationale to bind with said Ask. I know I can get rid of it, but why bother?

Besides, I ahve a licensed Academic Acrobat Pro, but even if I didn't, I'd much rather use the Open Source PDFCreator

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Try running IE8 in 32 bit mode.

IE8 (x-64) doesn't have Adobe flash compatability -- so I wouldn't be surprised if PDF didn't work either.

(Ensure of course that you've either installed Adobe Acrobat (commercial program) or Adobe Reader (Free) on your system.

Hmm, I didn't think about that....

However I assumed that it was b/c of the 7.x build, as I don't think you can install 7 on Vista and have it work at all....

Sumatra is good - I have it on my PortableApps UFD, just forgot about it.

But I have a license for Acrobat Pro, so I use that myself....

Installers Hall of Shame (Unwanted add-on) - Calendar Of Updates

As for it recognizing the OS as NT, do a *manual* DL for Adobe Reader for Windows Vista - use Adobe - Adobe Reader download - All versions
I do that, everything's ok now!
