Trying to install Acrobat Reader 8 on Vista RTM x64 and I get this error after the installer decompresses the installation files.

I don't get it. I have at least 60gb of freespace on this partition and the other 2 partitions are empty. Just for ~*giggles*~ I emptied the TEMP folder.

Still getting the error, and The Google has been no help! :cry:

I had no problems installing it on x86 RTM, but I stumbled upon this somewhere earlier today...

What you need to do is leave the error message open when it comes up, then fire up an Explorer window and go to: C:/Users/<USERNAME-HERE>/appdata/LocalLow/Netopsystems/temp/
Copy the Acrobat Reader 8.0 folder to some other folder, and run the installer from there.

Let me know if that helps. :)

That worked! I wonder what the issue is there...

Btw - v8 has GPU acceleration? What will this entail?

They miss **** all of the time. Don't you remember? 7.0.1 , 7.0.2, 7.0.3, 7.0.4 ... etc.. one right after another. ;)

Yup, having UAC disabled automatically sets the temp folder to not allow execution.

I always unpack installers to a folder with WinRAR (if they will unpack) then run setup from there.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
