I cannot install Adobe Reader 11 under Windows 8.
I have tried with both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
In both cases, the OS prompts me with "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes?", I select "Yes". I am never prompted for anything after this.
I see Adobe Reader Installer (32 bit) running in my task manager, the install_reader11_en_mssd_aih.exe file disappears from my downloads directory and the installer hangs until I kill it or reboot.
I am running Windos 8 64 bit, and I have Adobe Air, Photoshop Elements 9 and Photoshop Inspiration Browser already installed.
I was able to install Adobe Reader 11 using the direct msi ftp link at ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/reader/win/11.x/11.0.00/en_US/ so the problem appears to be mainly with the Adobe installer exe.
There is nothing that makes me think this is related to the installation problem, but my C: drive is an SSD and I have redirected Windows temp files to my D: drive hard disk.
Until I found this solution, I found that the Nitro Reader was a great alternative to read pdf files.
Big Help Thanks so much. I wish I knew how people like you find the solutions.
