How to uninstall older version of adobe reader when I receive a error 1714?
Go to http://www.adobe.com/ In their search bar at the top right of the screen enter uninstall adobe reader 7 This is the only link it provided about that version : http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewCont… and the information provided is rather involved - in my opinion, it's useless. Adobe should provide an uninstaller that is independent of the Windows "Install/Remove" program system. (Note: Adobe does have an uninstaller for their Flash player, so there is no reason they cannot have a uninstaller for their Reader program.) ========= I tried another search in Adobe's website with the phrase Error 1714 adobe reader and found this link : http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewCont… where they say that some registry cleaners might remove information that the uninstall routines need to be able to perform uninstallation. This looks like better information, but there are several solutions, and it seems that reinstalling Adobe Reader from its CD or original downloaded file will put the uninstall program where it needs to be to correctly perform the full uninstall. And do not run any registry cleaners, like ccleaner, etc., until you have fully uninstalled Adober Reader. ========== There is a "Did this resolve your problem" box on that page, perhaps you could type in a description of your problem, include your email, and see if they ever send any useful information back to you. Include your computer manufacturer and model, the Windows version, and the error messages you are seeing when you attempt the uninstall or a new install. Good luck !
