I downloaded and installed AR7.07 through...
by Basil Hall / February 8, 2006 5:41 PM PST

the built in updater and it registered as my only Adobe Reader in "add and remove files". However, the desktop icon still shows AR7.0 and when I click on a pdf file it is the old 7.0 that opens???

Any ideas what the problem is?

Thanks

Basil.. did you reboot after it downloaded?
by Carol~ Moderator / February 8, 2006 5:58 PM PST

According to the instructions, it says it will 'continue the install' after rebooting. (I don't know if those were the exact words) After restarting, I had to wait a little bit for it to continue the installation. My guess is that perhaps, you either didn't reboot or maybe you hadn't waited.

And.. I could be wrong Wink Just a guess..

To check if it installed..
by Carol~ Moderator / February 8, 2006 6:30 PM PST

Open it. Go to Help then ''Check for Updates''. It will check for updates.

When the new screen comes up, high-light ''Adobe Reader 7.0.7 update''. On the bottom left hand side of the screen it will say ''Status''.

If it installed improperly, it will say ''Not Installed'' or ''Installed'', whichever the case may be.

This should help..
