...then reinstall it.. It appears like you're trying to uninstall the patch first, then the main Adobe 8.1.0 program.. Instead, uninstall the main program and the patch should be removed at the same time.
Once that's done, you should be able to reinstall it by download the full manual installer from the Adobe site below. BE AWARE...Clicking on the link below will immediately start the download of a 22 MB file for the Adobe Reader 8.1.1 version.:
Hope this helps.
I?ve been experiencing very slow response time in IE. I believe its related to the following Adobe Reader 8.1.1 problem:
If you click on START
Then click on All Programs
Then click on Adobe, the ADOBE file shows ?Empty?
If you click on Control Panel
Then click on Add/Remove Programs
Then Click on Adobe Reader 8.1.1 and click the ?Change? or ?Remove? buttons, for this 86.5 mb program, you receive the following message:
?The Patch Package could not be updated. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid windows install patch package?
If you click on ?OK?, it brings you back to the All Programs list.
I was able to create a new Adobe Reader 8.1.1 file, (with 128 mb) but I can tell I still have response issues. I?ve also deleted (several times) the 128 mb file and was able to download a new one from the Adobe website.
I did not purchase an Adobe Technical support package. Any ideas on how I can delete this patch?
Thanks in advance!
