I tried updating Adobe Reader 11 and an update was available. However the update gavce me an error. I researched the error and it said to uninstall Reader and run the cleaner then reinstall. I uninstalled, ran the cleaner but the updater gave me a meta file error when attempting to reinstall. Please advise as to where I can obtain a standalone download of Adobe 11. I do not want the 'cloud' version which seems to be the only version available on the Adobe Reader downloads page now. Thanks.
[Title edited for clarity by moderator. Was "Adobe Reader 11".
What is your objection to the free Adobe Acrobat Reader DC? I'm asking because Adobe stopped suppor for Acrobat XI last fall and stopped doing security updates. I would be afraid to use it.
With the free Reader, there is no subscription—if that's your concern.
Directions are here if you choose to proceed:
I installed DC and I have just removed it. What a piece of rubbish. I've been using Acrobat since version 1 and even attended the launch in the UK as a developer.
The user interface is ridiculous almost childish what are the designers thinking with these large fonts and falt colour schemes it's appalling alonst as bad as the MS word Ribbon nonsense. I'm not alone there is a discussion on the uservoice forum about this and Adobe have done nothing about it. They have gone from being a well respected company to one vilified for their decisions in the sapce of 5 years.
I thought Adobe couldn't get any worse. It's name is already Mud.
Not interested in anything to do with the cloud. I just want a basic lightweight reader without all the bloat. The latest version design is 'horrific'. I tried it and now wish to return to version XI as I have reinstalled windows 7 on my pc (Windows 10 is also very poor and full of Microsoft spyware (Telemetry), which you can't turn off or set updates to manual).
Acrobat Reader DC is not cloud software.
