I cannot DL Adobe produts due to an error code of 1612. Says that the installation source not available. Adobe's help areas are of no help for this error code. If anyone has a solution, I would be grateful

Thanks, Bob

HP Pavilion Slimline s3020n
Windows Vista Home Premium SP2 32 bit
AMD 64 Athlon X2
Firefox 31.4.0 ESR

The solution you will most likely end up with, if the others are not appropriate for your situation, is using the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. Unfortunately, when you follow the link to the Microsoft article, you will find that Microsoft have withdrawn it.

You can find it on some third party download sites, like this:
