After buying a new computer because After Effects suddenly refused to work on the old one, I find I can't install Acrobat Pro on the new machine.
Trying to install from the CC desktop app.
Everything else installed fine.
Acrobat Pro installs to about 20%, gets hung up on 'Extracting' and I get a 'Progress is Slow' message, then installation fails at 43% or 71%.
Error Code: 136
Exit Code: 7
Please see specific errors below for troubleshooting. For example, ERROR: DW003, DW071 ...
-------------------------------------- Summary --------------------------------------
- 0 fatal error(s), 2 error(s)
----------- Payload: Adobe Acrobat DC 21.5.20058.0 Adobe Acrobat\Setup.exe_21.005.20058 -----------
ERROR: DW003: Third party payload installer Adobe Acrobat\Setup.exe failed with exit code: 1602
Have obviously tried to rebot, reinstall CC Desktop etc
I downloaded Creative Cloud Cleaner, but as there isn't anything Acrobat related installed, I can't figure out how to use this to 'clean up' and installations.
Any help would be appreciated.
Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described you are unable to install the Acrobat pro from CC application and get the error 'Exit Code 7'
Please check out the steps/suggestions shared in the help page https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/error-exit-6-exit-7-cc.html which talks about the same and see if that works for you.
If the issue still persists, please run the Acrobat cleaner tool - https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Labs/cleaner.html reboot the computer and reinstall the application using the link - https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/acrobat-dc-downloads.html and check.
As I put in my first message, I have the cleaner tool, but I don't know how to use this as Acrobat is not installed. Can you advise on how to use the cleaner in this case?
We are sorry to hear that. Go to the link https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/Labs/cleaner.html and download the cleaner tool as per your OS and run it and see if it finds any previous installation files present on your computer and after running it , reboot your computer and install the applicatrion using the link shared earlier .
