I subscribe to Adobe Acrobat DC, but want also to install the free Reader app for testing documents that users without DC can use. Whenever I attempt to install Reader, however, I receive the message that Adobe Acrobat DC already is installed and the installation process aborts.
I cannot log out of DC to use the free version because that closes the application altogether.
Addendum: A prior post on this topic indicates that the installation issue has to do with both versions using the same 64-bit pathway, but the 32-bit version appears no longer to be available (and perhaps will not work with Windows 11?). I am hoping another workaround is possible.
Have the same issue. I paid for a subscription to Adobe Acrobat DC Pro. I tried to download Reader for Windows 10, a file was downloaded and when I clicked on it a window opened that said "Adobe Acrobat Reader DC: Equivalent product already instealled" with a red cross and a ticked box saying "Launch Acrobat Reader DC". Need to submit a filing to a government website and the government system requires me to export from PDF to xfdf and that function is not supported on Acrobat Reader DC Pro.
