Thanks Peter. I consider it real bad manners for a program, trial or not, to remove an existing program unasked and leave me without it. It's especially bad from a big and presumably professional outfit like Adobe. If Adobe had a notice somewhere telling me that their FrameMaker 10 trial would remove my old version of Acrobat and install an inoperable Acrobat version instead, I missed it.

Maybe Adobe figures that since my Acrobat 6 was so old, I've gotten more than my money's worth and they are justified in removing it because I owe them all the upgrade fees I never paid. Like when I used to be a hippie and had hair way down past my shoulders and I one day went to see an old union barber in his barbershop and he told me he figured I owed him.

Sorry, I should have said FM trial and Acrobat.

That may impact your old version of FM requiring you to reinstall that as well.

Yes it does make sense in that you can only have one version of Acrobat installed on a single machine.

You will now have to uninstall the FM10 trial and reinstall your old version.

The moral is never to install trial versions on production machines.
