Editors' Review

+

Adobe Reader XI allows you to easily read and enter information into PDF files.

Pros

Form submission: Adobe Reader allows you to easily enter information on a PDF form and submit it.

Attention to style: Reader looks great, and the interface is very easy to understand.

Good control: Reader offers excellent control over any document you're viewing. You can zoom, navigate, and search large documents very effectively.

Cons

Clunky installation: Installing Reader is clunky. After downloading the file, the Adobe installer launches, which executes a lengthy installation process. Then when you finally launch the app, your computer informs you that it needs to configure the program and then restart your computer.

Bottom Line

Adobe wrote the book on PDF software, and Reader lives up to its pedigree. It is, simply put, the best program available for this purpose. If you work with PDFs a lot, you'll want it installed on your system.

"file labeled XI installs as 10; Tom's Guide workaround"

October 19, 2014  |  By kmarin

 |  Version: Adobe Reader XI 11.0.09

Pros

By going to the Adobe website, you do get an advance warning of the indefensibly useless & cynical terms of service for XI; we promise nothing, & ha ha, you can't catch me. Per usual, you must agree to it, or you can't download. The file is called "Reader_11_0_en', but as noted above, it reinstalls Reader 10. Very kind, I'm sure...

Cons

...but I did already have 10. If you just need some version of Reader, that's great of course; just remember to decide if you want the Norton which is on "yes" by default. Trying to use Norton with your current virus catcher might scramble things, so don't accept it if you don't need it.
By going to another website (Tom's Guide, which may/not be famous; new to me), I was able to download a different file: install_reader11_en_ltr5x64d_awc_aih.exe. I had to download it twice, as it only partially completed installation the first time. I did successfully install it. (This previously happened w Flash as well; I have to remember to make a copy of the file before clicking on it to install, so I DON'T have to download it again. While there must a number of other sources, this site appears to have downloaded only what I asked for without insisting on pushing other stuff on me.

Summary

Go to Tom's Guide (at http://www.tomsguide.com/us/download/Reader-Adobe,0301-5623.html) to get a workaround vs. Adobe's providing Reader 10 at its XI download link. There's an Apple & a Windows version; type your desired version in the search box if it's not apparent. (Sorry- kind of gruesome to think of either company as a parent; 'tis the season though.)
NOTE: Having just succeeded in downloading XI, I haven't test-driven it yet. I 3-starred only so not to be prejudicial in either direction; the site would not allow a 0-star posting.
