Adobe Reader XI Installation Problem

I just performed a fresh reload of Windows XP SP3 on one of my computers. After downloading and running the installer for Adobe Reader XI I get the following error pop up:
Internet Explorer Script Error
An Error has occurred in the script on this page.
Line:     1
Char:    10570
Error:    'ActionLaunchReader' is undefined.
Code:    0
URL:     http://127.0.0.1:2469/app/_js/adobe.js
Again I am running Windows XP SP3 with all the patches applied, JRE 7u10 (set as the default for both IE and Firefox), and scripting is enabled in Internet Explorer. I get the exact same error when trying to install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player as well, however, Adobe Shockwave installed just fine.
I am new to this forum, so forgive me if this problem has been posted before. I did not find anything similar in a search. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • HP pavilion g6 adobe reader 8 installer problem

    I got a problem: (just got vista)
    When I run the Adobe Reader 8 installer, I get this: Screenshot
    I am really glad if you guys can help me to figure this out.Coz i love my HP laptop...thanks

    First, I would use the latest version of Reader XI. But you need to empty your temp folder. You can have a temp folder off the C: drive and you can have a temp folder in your Personal Settings Folder.

  • Adobe reader 11 installation problem

    Cannot instal Adobe reader 11. Downloader starts, installation files are downloaded, message appears "installation successful", looking at the system control, installed software, surprise surprise no Adobe 11 installed!!! Tried it with Firefox, IE, to no avail. sometimes a window opens saying "the installation has not been successful". None of the advices work. De-installed Adobe 7 beforehand of course.
    I'm using XP SP3, Java script enabled.
    Any idea would be very appreciated.

    If "none of the advices work" I may be wasting my time and yours, but you can try using this tool to remove all traces of Reader:
    http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/acrobatcleaner.html
    Then, you may download the offline Reader installer from
    http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/
    After downloading, restart your computer and run the installer before doing anything else.

    This is what is says:
    In order to distribute Adobe Reader software you need to have a valid
    Adobe Reader Distribution Agreement in place.
    If you are not planning to distribute the software, you are free to download and use it.

  • Adobe Reader X installation issue

    Adobe Reader X installation caused me a very strange, unusual problem. My OS is Win XP SP3 and I have already installed Adobe Acrobat v.9.4.5.
    The installation process went fine, but when my system had to be restarted after the installation at the domain login the system requested me to change my password, because of the expiring. It was very strange, because the PW has been changed 2 weeks before regarding the official 3 months period rule. I did the change now again, but after that I could not reach anyway a https web site (with certificate) and additionally has been destroyed my predefined signature in  the Adobe Acrobat.
    Well, after a longer wrestling with my system I could restore the missed functionalities (I had to remove the Reader too for this). However later I needed again the Reader for a test purpose and after the new installation exactly the same problem happend as above I described!
    Has someone faced with any similar case?
    BR: Dzsenix

    Thanks for the info. Maybe that would be nice to build into the Reader and/or Acrobat a function to check any existing installed Adobe versions on the PC and warn the user if there would be any incompatibility issue during the installation of a new Adobe product. Many no-name programs can do that............ The great Adobe no would be able to do that???????

    Hi guidolal,
    Are you facing the issue with any pdf's on the Mac.
    Have you tried downloading a sample pdf like any Adobe help file from the website and then check if you are able to launch it fine via Reader?

  • Adobe reader 11 installation fails. error message: there was an error installing adobe reader. adobe

    Adobe reader 11 installation fails. error message: there was an error installing adobe reader. adobe reader installation error. null. tried using adobe cleaning  tool. using XP sp3. seems that adobe 11 is not completely uninstalling. this is because when adobe reader  11 is removed  from add/remove program. when pc is rebooted, adobe reader 11 entry comes back but it is  like false entry as no size given. please help to succesfully install Adobe Reader 11.  also tried:
    1. uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled  2. installed from different locations  3. removed adobe key from
    local machine and tried to install

    Seriously, I do not understand what is going on - I have never seen this before!
    The MSI installers are usually used in corporate environments to roll out installs on multiple machines.  However, you can use it like a normal (EXE) installer; it will just go through fewer steps than the EXE.  Not sure if it will improve the situation, but it's worth a try.
    Another thing to try is to uninstall these remaining entries using Microsoft Fixit: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall - also no guarantee, but also worth trying.

  • Adobe Reader 9 installation freezes computer

    upon running the installation for adobe reader 9, setup gets to 99.90 percent, then a new window comes up, similar to the installation window. Estimated time remaining gets to 9 seconds, then the installation freezes, and so does everything else. A cold reboot is required...
    I'm currently using foxit reader to read PDFs (Also, programs that print to PDF files cause a similar freeze.
    Computer details:
    Vista 32 bit Home premium.
    3gb ram
    300+gb hard disk space more than 50gb free
    Dell inspiron 530 desktop
    Spyware doctor - Avira antivir - and Threatfire installed
    Interestingly enough, this is being typed in an open firefox window as the installer is frozen, along with the desktop and taskbar.
    Additional details:
    Reader (at that time version 8)
    Along with PDFcreator both worked perfectly on my system
    After reinstalling windows to clear my system *and changing antivirus to Avira - note no security issues are flagged by avira when installer runs*
    Pdf creator went buggy. Pdfs printed by PDF creator would freeze when Reader tried opening them. (Although after restarting the system those same pdfs could be opened)
    An attempt to repair the Adobe reader installation for version 8 failed, Then Opening Reader alone would freeze my computer. And I had to crudely uninstall Reader as a result. *May have left files - but I've scoured the Temp folders for them*
    Anyway, installing adobe reader 9 then led to the error. (Interestingly, adobe reader 9 did appear installed after a cold reboot, and worked, however it dissapeared after the next normall restart.
    &I've tried installing using a new acc, same error.
    &FOxit reader works
    &Adobe version 8 does not appear on my system.
    &All normal computer functions seem to work..(Although a video on Gamespot recently displayed buggy stuff, not related i think)
    &Installations of other programs work
    &i've tried installing in a different directory
    &Spyware doc, Threatfire, and Avira scans come up clean.
    Just restarted *cold reboot*
    The system took a long time to shut down *held the power button for longer*
    And the hard disk didnt stop spinning for a very long time...
    It also took a very long time to start the computer
    Also, running an installer makes me undo the changes made by the adobe reader 9 installation, since it was suspeneded.

    Use the Microsoft Installer Cleanup to remove vestiges of any version of
    Reader in your Registry. Then turn off all antivirus and spyware
    programs. Then try to re-install

  • Cannot Delete Adobe Reader 9 Installer after failed download

    I tried to download Adobe Reader 9 and the installation froze around 83%.  After multiple attempts I tried downloading an older version (Adobe 8) and it worked but the installation folder for Adobe 9 is still on my desktop and it will not let me delete it. I have already tried using the Windows Install cleanup tool but it did not work. Any other ideas on how I can get rid of this installation program?

    Thanks.. I managed to find a way to make it work.. I had no Adobe Reader in my list of programs when I went to Start | Control Panel | Add/Remove..  I took a  chance and deleted Acrobat.com.. that allowed me to reload the latest v of Reader.  I hope it didn't mess anything else up.

    I had same situation. Was able to delete by the following: (don't know why)
    In Windows Explorer dragged the Adobe AIR folder from Desktop to another folder (which
    removed it from the desk top display). Then just deleted it from the other folder.
    Hope it works for you.

  • Adobe Reader 9 Installer on Desktop?

    I just installed Adobe Reader 9 on a new Win Vista machine and it intalled three icons on my desktop: Adobe Reader 9, Adobe Reader 9 Installer, Acrobat.com. I understand why I need the Adobe Reader 9, but why were the other two left on my desktop after the intall? Can I delete the Adobe Reader 9 Installer and the Acroat.com? I don't really want them on my desktop if I don't need them. Thanks for the help. Mac

    I have the same thing. I use Vista home Premium
    I notice the adobe reader 9 installer folder is full of stuff. I wonder if you can delete it after reader 9 is installed?
    Also I have adobe Air in my programs. Can that be deleted too?
    Now when I first downloaded reader 9 I clicked ok for the Adobe DLM active x and that allowed something called "getPlus for Adobe" from NOS Microsystems. When I installed adobe Reader 9 on another computer, I did not click ok to Adobe DLM active x and i did NOT get reader 9installer on my dek top nor the getPlus for Adobe
    I wonder if you don't use Adobe DLM active X and if you delete Adobe Air, Acrobat.com, doe you still have the newer secure Reader 9 functions?

  • Adobe Reader 9 Installer

    Now that I am running Adobe Reader XI can I delete the Adobe Reader 9 Installer?

    There is no longer a need for AR9, so yes. For future questions on Reader, try the Reader forum.
