@neepninja

Are you running Adobe products that lets say didn't come from Adobe? Thumper's post about Reader caught my eye and I am wondering why that issue comes up first.
Just another reason to say NO to Adobe products.
Please let us know the results whether they work or not.

Hi, thanks for the help. I already have the file that is reported missing.. I've not tried the above yet as I'm in work. The only Adobe that I have is Adobe Acrobat Reader XI (didn't come from Adobe )

Thanks.

While "This app can't run on your PC" is probably the most common error message that users get when they run into the issue, Windows may display different error messages as well:
  • This app can't run on your PC. To find a version for your PC, check with the software publisher.
  • This app can't open. [App name] can't open while User Account Control is turned off.
  • This app has been blocked for your protection. An administrator has blocked you from running this app. For more information contact the administrator.
Try to find a compatible version. You may have to download an earlier version of a program if you try to run it on an older version of Windows. The most recent version of Google Chrome won't run under Windows XP anymore for instance no matter what you try.

Hope this helps you.

Best,
Jerry M.
