Reader will not install on Win2003 Enterprise Server

asked by about Adobe Reader

Will not install on Win2003 Enterprise Server. The Adobe Download Manager claims that some
other process is using files and it cannot update them. The problem is that the ADM is "supposed" to
list the process(es) that are using these files, but displays nothing in the list but 'Programs or processes
using Adobe files". (Wording may not be exact, since I had to abort the intall.)

If the ADM cannot list any process(es) that are using Adobe files, I must assume that none are
actually using these files and that it is a problem updating on this OS.
