I have just tried to install Reader XI, but I keep being directed to Reader X. Looking at the Technical Specs. Windows Vista is not listed. An over sight? What is going on?
How are you "directed" to Reader X; during the download, or during the install?
You can download Reader XI from http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/ for Windows 7; it should install fine on Vista. It is just not officially supported.
[topic moved to Adobe Reader forum]
I have Reader XI on my Win 7 office computer. I have Vista on my home computer and tried different links to get to the Reader XI download page, but I too kept getting redirected to the X download page.
When I found the "previous versions" page http://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/ I tried inputing different OSs (XP, Vista and 7) and discovered XI is not available for Vista. Obviously the auto-redirect is due to Adobe.com detecting my OS.
I'm not overly concerned. I mean, ver X works fine for what I need it for at home. The only reason I came here (to the forum) was to find out 'why'.
Adobe Reader 11 is not supported on Windows Vista but install is not restricted .
If you want to install Reader 11 on Vista, get an offline Reader 11 installer
if you want Vista supported versions then you can download Reader 10 or 9 from below link
Installing Adobe reader XI on windows vista is no problem - if you have got the whole program, and not just the software link or the installation-program, which breaks up while trying installing adobe reader on windows vista. When the "installer" detects the vista platform, then there is something going to be wrong obviously.
