I do NOT have Acrobat 8x installed on my comouter. I DO have Acrobat 7x installed. I do not believe that I can patch Acrobat 8x and do not understand why it is seemingly detected.

@jhookersr ,

PSI is finding something on your computer which relates to Adobe Acrobat 8.x .

I will give you some basic advice (sorry if you already know) , which may help you explain any problems to us more specifically :-

To help resolve any problem , here are some instructions to help you first of all get the best out of PSI :-

1)use PSI in "advanced" mode ;
2)in the "settings" tab make sure that the box in the first/upper section is NOT ticked in order to have the maximum info available ;
3)tell us in which "tab(s)" your problem programme is located ;
4)in that tab , click on the + in the box at the left end of the programme , the page will expand ;
5)in the expanded page , tell us what is written in the "installation path" ;
6)in the "toolbox" section , lower down , the link "technical details" should confirm the installation path details ;
7)click on the link "open folder" and you will see more details concerning the location of the "problem" .

Posting these details will help the Forum help you , if/when you have a problem .

If you need more help , post back here .

Take care


It always seems impossible until its done.
