Yeah way to many of those lol.

At least gmail does not allow you to send a .exe file.

But some times that gets in the way when I want to send a file to myself. O well.

I used to like Adobe Reader back in the days before it became bloated and slow.

I can't even use Adobe Reader 9 at work. Or any of the latest Adobe products. I setup all my users with roaming profiles to simplify things for them and me. However none of the latest Adobe products (esp Reader 9.x) works with roaming! They all crash. Worse still no word from Adobe about when they're going to fix this or even if they care.

The latest version of Adobe Reader (9.1) works with roaming profiles. I' ve got roaming profiles and folder redirection in place and it worked for me. I have taken Adobe Reader off due to the zero day exploit and I'm using Foxit instead. For more info on the Adobe Reader issue see:

Hammerhead, how did you get it to work? I have roaming profiles and redirected folders on our network as well. Whenever I load Reader from a roaming profile, it crashes. If I load Reader from a local profile on the same machine, it works fine. I used Reader 9.0 and 9.1.

FreakyFerret, Sorry for the delay in getting back to you, I've just downloaded Adobe 9.1 Reader again and installed it on my Windows 7 pc. It loads up fine and I can open pdfs ok. I've done nothing out of the ordinary. Just accepted the defaults for installation. The account I'm using has folder re-direction in place and has a roaming profile.

Cheers,
Hamid

I know Reader 9 will definitely not work with folder re-direction. Only 9.1 does. I've also tested it with an account that has non admin privileges and it still works.

Hammerhead, I tried 9.1 a couple of weeks ago. Maybe it was like 9.1.1 and you tried 9.1.2. I'll try it again next week when time allows. Thanks!
