Do I have to keep Adobe AIR if I only want Adobe Reader 9?

Q: Do I have to keep Adobe AIR if I only want Adobe Reader 9?

Do I have to? And do I also need Acrobat.com?

Preferred Solution: Do I have to keep Adobe AIR if I only want Adobe Reader 9?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Do I have to keep Adobe AIR if I only want Adobe Reader 9?

You just need the reader, not all of the bloatware. A lot of people have found Foxit pdf reader to be a preferred substitute. Just letting you knowhttp://www.download.com/Foxit-Reader/3000-...4-10313206.html

I updated to Adobe Reader 9.2 from Adobe's website this morning and when I got home, it said Adobe updater needs attention. It was offering to install 8.1.4. Maybe because I haven't restarted yet. I thought that was weird. Several problems trying to open a pdf file after updating. Said tab has been restored and kicked me out of reader a few times. Finally it let me into the PDF and said it was parsing the data or configuring the file for reading or somesuch. I hope it stops behaving badly after a restart. paj692
 

A:Solved: I'm using Adobe Reader 9.2 why is the updater offering Adobe Reader 8.1.4

Adobe has released some information about some big security holes in Adobe software: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/

You can turn off the updater as follows:
1. Load ADobe Reader
2. Go to Edit, Preferences
3. Select Updater at the bottom
4. Select 'Do not down or install updates automatically'
5. Click OK

SITUATION
I created a pdf. file from a document that had 'fill-in forms'. I used Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0. to create the PDF file.

I then I burned the pdf. file on to a CD.

When I used my Adobe Reader 9.0 to open the PDF file, I could fill-in the forms, but not save them. I received a message that said I could not save the information, only print it unless I enabled the ‘local save capability’ in the original pdf. file.

I will be selling the CDs and need the buyer to be able to fill-in the forms, and then save the document on the CD or the buyer’s computer.

QUESTIONS
1. How do I enable the ‘local save capability’ on Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0, saving the document with the information typed into the fill-in forms?

2. How can I write protect the pdf. file so no one can edit it (except for the fill-in fields) nor duplicate the disk?

3. Has anyone bought a software product from www.SoftCaptain.com and if yes, what was your experience with the software product company?

 

A:Adobe Acrobat Professional & Adobe Reader

I can't answer all of your questions, but data on a CD is read only, you won't be able to save the edited file on that CD.
It can only be saved on the hard drive & then burned to CD again, if necessary.

Hi all, I need help. Strange things are happening. My computer freezes when I open a web page and click on a link. Sometimes the link will partially load, sometimes not, but if it freezes, I cannot X out of the whole thing. I have to use Control/Alt/Delete. Also, Adobe Acrobat has disappeared. It shows in the Add/Delete programs in the Control panel(Adobe Acrobat 5.0) but on the list of programs shown is I put the cursor at Start, Adobe name is there but it is empty. I tried to update it yesterday thinking that was part of my
problem but I was told there was no program to update and I cannot find it on-line anywhere to install again.

That is the difference between Adobe Acrobat 5.0, Adobe reader 7 and Adobe Flash Player 9? I am a new user (and an old granny) and am having real problems figuring a lot of this out. I have cleaned up everything I can think of and do not know how to address this problem. Any help is appreciated.

A:Foxit Reader works fine -- uninstalling Adobe pdf reader

I've used Foxit reader, but it wasn't totally compatible with Adobe Acrobat created PDF files, but in most cases it sufficed quite well. As for Photoshop replacements, there are a few others available and PaintShop Pro is not a bad alternative, though when Corel bought it out initially, it completely stuffed things up. I understand that it's fixed a lot of update issues etc in that time and it's leagues cheaper than Photoshop.

Do you guys remember when Adobe Reader was just this nice simple little PDF file reader. I had such a problem with Adobe Reader 9 and the site that I manage with all of Adobe Reader 9's add-on crap, that my once fine Adobe Reader 8 that came in at 60 MB's, with version 9 came in at over 200! I kid you not!

I'm sick of software companies piling on all this extra crap that has nothing to do with the performance or enhancement of the product. A PDF reader should be to read files....That's it. I don't need some graphic enhancing garbage, window washing, calender, singing man, Find Blimpy The Clown game, install the optional toolbar crap.

Luckily I was able to uninstall version 9 and go back to version 8 with the 8.1.3 within the program. Than I read at Adobe's site that there were some critical security patches for Reader 9. Well Adobe, if you would focus on the product necessities rather than the unrelated garbage, performance might be enhanced instead of hindered.

I can't wait to see what Blimpy The Clown does in Version 10! UGGHHH!

Adobe Acrobat 4.0 was on my computer when I bought it. I have Windows ME. Recently I downloaded a free copy of the Acrobat Reader 6.0 but Adobe Acrobat is not free. Is Reader a part of Adobe Acrobat? Should I buy an updated version Adobe Acrobat and if so, what would be the advantage of doing so
 

A:What is the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader

Adobe Acrobat is the full version which allows you to create and edit pdf files. Reader is free and is just the viewer that allows you to read pdf documents someone else has created. If you still have the full version of 4.0 it should still work fine for creating simple pdf documents. The advantage of upgrading is that 4.0 is no longer supported by Adobe and the more recent versions (they're up to 7 now) have many more features. You should keep your version of the Reader current because older versions of the Reader may not be able to open documents created with the newer versions of Acrobat. But if you don't use Acrobat very much for creating and editing (and it sounds like you don't), I don't see any need to purchase an upgrade. Hope that all made sense.

One of our users is having a problem with Adobe Reader 6.0 Professional. When he saves a PDF from Lotus Notes 6.5.1, he gets an error message "A drawing error occurred". After uninstalling and reinstalling 5.0.5, a different error occurred, "Insufficient Data for the Image".

This is a new PC build and everything worked fine before, on his old PC. He is running XP Pro SP2, Notes 6.5.1.

I have uninstalled/reinstalled Notes, give Administrator access to both adobe and Lotus, uninstalled/reinstalled Adobe 5.0.5 and 6.0 Pro.

Nothing we have come up with has worked as of yet. Anyone have an idea that could help us out? Google and various other forums don't give alot of help.

Oh, if I view a web based PDF and save that, there is no error, it works fine. This is related somehow to Notes and Adobe.

A:adobe reader 9.2

Hi JoeyS,

I assume, since your problem is posted in the Win 7 forum, that you are running Win 7. As I see it, you have three choices :

1 Since nearly all of us use the Acrobat reader from time to time, you could just update it to the current version which is 10.1.1 .

2 It does not come with a built-in uninstaller, but you can delete it using Control Panel : 'Start' , 'Control Panel' , 'Programs' , 'Uninstall a program' . This comes up with a list of your installed software, click on the Acrobat reader, click 'Uninstall' . This should remove it, if it doesn't, then :

3 Get hold of a copy of a utility called 'Your Uninstaller' . This is a little utility which is brilliant at uninstalling software, I use it quite a lot and it normally uninstalls everything associated with the program you tell it to uninstall.

Best of luck,

Chris Cosgrove
