    Re: Error 1500 installing Adobe Reader in Windows 8

    Dear friend,

    You should check whether any instance of Adobe reader installation is already running into your system. To check this, open task manager. In the processes tab, search for Adobe processes such as AcroRd32.exe, if it is there, then you should close all the processes related with it. You can use process tree option in task manager to close all processes. After that you can click Adobe reader icon on your desktop, to run Adobe reader. You can also use REVO UnInstaller pro, which will help you to remove incomplete installation of Adobe reader. Also check the compatibility of version of Adobe reader with Windows 8.

    You can also restart your system before installing Adobe reader to interrupt the installation.
    You can also do a system restore to an earlier time to refresh your computer.


    Thanks!

    Re: Error 1500 installing Adobe Reader in Windows 8

    The error is occuring due to some background interference due to many possible activities like too many processes running, or too may apps running or even windows updater service is active etc,

    This might also happen due to incomplete uninstall of previous Adobe Reader program from the system.

    Press all at once , CTRL+SHIFT+ESC , and invoke Task Manager, click Processes, close unnecessary processes by selecting them and clicking END PROCESS. Likewise, click Services and close unnecessary ones.

    Exit. Log into www.adobe.com, find adobe acrobat removal tool, download and remove any trace of reader from your system. Then from the same website download latest Reader download and install.

    This can fix the issue for you.
