Hi all,

While "tidying up" my computer, I managed to get rid of Adobe Reader. Now, I cannot upload it back. I keep getting the following message:
Error 1316. A network error accurred while attempting to read file C:\Windows\installer\AdbeRdr812_en_US.msi
I think I've tried everything. I tried to download it from different websites incl., I saved it on a disk and tried to dowload it from disc, but nothing seems to work.
I'm using Firefox and can't open any online pdf. files. Any ideas? If I am not able to fix, is there any other program I can use to open online pdf. files?

Thanks for your help.

PDF-XChange PDF Viewer Oct 14, 2008

I suggest PDF-XChange PDF Viewer. It's free and you can annotate PDFs with it.

Adobe ADM Firefox Add-On Oct 14, 2008

Not sure if you'll be able to do this, but I just Googled Adobe Reader downloads, found Adobe Reader 9.0 (I had version 8) and downloaded it, in order to do which I first had to download a Firefox Add-On called Adobe ADM. The installation was lengthy (took about 15 minutes), but no problem, and my Adobe Reader 9 is now working normally.

Thank you guys. I've managed to fix it somehow through Tools -> Options -> Applications and changing Firefox to Adobe 8.1.

Save your computer from the extra gas needed to run Adobe Reader....icon_wink.gif

I use X-Change Viewer suggested by Uldis.
