When I try to instal Acrobat Reader DC on Mac OSX 10.12.3 I get a message during the installation process (after typing in admin password to instal). Message reads "found a higher version of Acrobat Reader in the installation location. Installation cancelled" (or something similar.
Then get this popup: I've delewed the previous version and searched hard drive for any other version. Can't find anything.
As per the error message appears above, in this scenario you need to reset the application preferences and then try reinstalling the app again. So that the old files that has been created or saved on your system would be deleted.
If you see the Acrobat Reader under application, then you need to move it to the trash first. And after that follow the steps suggested below and reset the Acrobat's preferences.
Let us know if it still doesn't work.
I know this is rather late, but a note for posterity: before rushing to uproot files under the "preference" folder, try removing the deleted/uninstalled adobe files from "trash" as well.
Much appreciated. You would assume that since it is in the Trash that it is removed everywhere. Apparently not
Thanks a lot.
Removed Acrobat files from the Trash and It worked !!
