|I am running Windows XP SP.3 and trying to install Adobe Reader X (I am now using Adobe Reader 9), BUT when I both try and RUN the installer from the browser, AND also try SAVE to desktop, and THEN install the app, (trying from BOTH Firefox AND Internet Explorer browsers) I keep getting a message from an Adobe pop-up box that says that I must CLOSE PROGRAM MANAGER FIRST. |
This is at about 96% complete.
I searched for PROGMAN.EXE (PROGRAM MANAGER file name) and found the file in 3 places...
C:\WINDOWS\system32 (FILE VERSION: 5.1.2600.5512)
C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386 (FILE VERSION: 5.1.2600.5512 (SAME))
C:\WINDOWS\$NtServicePackUninstall$ (of course, this one is the OLD version.)
The thing is is that FIRST, the PRODUCT and FILE VERSIONS ARE THE SAME, BUT the CREATE dates are different within the system32 and i386 files for PROGMAN.EXE.
SECOND, under PROPERTIES within PROGMAN.EXE, the PRODUCT NAME is Microsoft (tm) Windows (tm) Operating System .
NOT an APP, BUT THE OPERATING SYSTEM ITSELF???
Am I understanding this correctly?
How (can I?!) close PROGRAM MANAGER to install this?
It's driving me crazy that I cannot update/install Reader X!
Can anyone PLEASE help me?
P.S. Does it matter if the browsers are CURRENT VERSIONS? I wouldn't think so, just asking.
