Need help with Adobe Reader 8.1.1
« on: January 30, 2008, 02:01:59 PM »
I am trying to install Adobe Reader 8.1.1 and getting an error code and the computer froze up for awhile.  The Adobe web site suggest over 2 dozen possibilities for causes.  I'm wondering if anyone on this forum had the same problem and found the remedy.  It would save me hours of testing.

I have Windows XP Professional with plenty of memory and disk space.  The only other thing that's that is interesting is that I have Corel X3 graphic program installed and the version of Adobe reader (part of Corel X3) is working with that program, but I can only open graphic files that is CDR (Corel).  Any help will be appreciated immensely.

Don't install the version 8. Go to this page and download version 7

Understudy.  Only the 8.1.1 shows up on the web site, can't find version 7 anywhere.  This thing driving me crazy, but thank you for trying to help.
