    I can't open any .pdf files. My Pc gets hung. I tried uninstalling (so I could install again and see if it corrected the error) but it says "Unable to locate installation log file, will not uninstall".

    So what I did is I downloaded Acrobat reader 5 but I can't even get the set up window.


    Oh please help.

    In order for the program to work and associate with PDFs, you need to launch it solo first. That is, don't try to use it by launching it from a PDF doc, bit open Acrobat 5 by going through the program's shortcut. At that time, you should get a license agreement blurb, and off you go. It should work normally after that. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    But the thing is I haven't installed Adobe 5. I'm unable to do that.

    Yes the icon is there.

    When I click it, it says "Acrobat Reader setup is preparing the install sheild wizard which will guide you through the rest of the set up process"

    it loads upto 99% then stops. Then nothing happens.

    Sounds like you've downloaded a corrupted archive. Try downloading it again, and make sure you've closed your programs and antivirus software. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Ok, I'll try that.

    But I was also wondering if the earlier version of Adobe(now screwed up) is preventing the installation of the new version?

    It shouldnt, as it looks for previous versions to write over first, and programmed for that to be ok. If you have any question about it though, I'd delete it (or EVERYTHING adobe) and start over.

    If the earlier version is corrupted, you should attempt to run the uninstall program for that as well to make sure it's cleaned up.

    Also make sure you've rebooted - earlier attempts at opening/unistalling earlier version of Adobe may have left some of the files locked in memory and the new setup can't access/overwrite them to do its thing.

    Actually, LJS -

    We produce our company's catalog on CD now with PDF files, and it does tend to have conflicts with earlier versions of Acrobat Reader. So you might want to uninstall the old version first. Plus, turning off the Anti-Virus seems to help with a lot of installations as well. Good luck, bro.

    Hey thanks guys. I didn't need to download again. Its a bit strange. Like I said the install sheild wizard would load upto 99% then stop. But I left the computer idle for about an hour and the installation started by itself! Its installed and my files work!

    Thanks a lot! [img]smile.gif[/img]


    But now I have another computer problem for which I'm starting a new topic..
