I have a client who is running Server 2019 Remote Desktop server and want to have both Reader and Pro installed on the same system.
Adobe support have tried to assist with this but they have not been able to resolve so looking if anyone on here who has setup this way or some insight to why its not working.
The process support instructed me to go through is to install Pro from: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/acrobat/kb/acrobat-dc-downloads.html
Then install Reader following https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/install-reader-dc-windows.html
If we do this, Reader will not install, it error with "Old/New Acrobat vesion alread installed."
If we install in the reverse Reader then Pro, the Pro instyaller removes reader as part of the process.
I have also tried the cleaner utilities to completely remove both Reader and Pro and tried again but no different.
Any guidance would be appreciated.
"Acrobat requires licensing. Reader requires a distribution agreement."

Specifically, see the visrtualization guide:
You need these guides and some heavy reading to do.
Also see the Note about system requirements and recommended deployment of x64 machines versus x86:
Thanks for the resources very useful for optemising our deployment. I could not find any refrence to installing both products side by side.
However I have managed to fix it.
It seems once pro is installed, the reader installer from https://get.adobe.com/reader/ will not complete due to an existing installation.
However I was able to download the reader installer and update packet from the below links and they installed without any issues. I found them at.
Happy to read that you were able to sort it out.
