Editors' Review

+
The new version of this indispensable product doesn't introduce revolutionary changes, but it doesn't have to. As the low-end PDF reader, it simply keeps up with Acrobat Professional and Standard. This release adds the ability to play back embedded multimedia files in MP3, QuickTime, Macromedia Flash, Real, and Windows Media formats, as well as to submit Adobe PDF forms. It also replaces some of the icons in the default interface with optional, dockable toolbars. You might as well install this now before a Web site you visit prompts you to download it, because you'll need it.

"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.
