Acrobat Reader MUST be installed from the installer program provided by
Adobe. It CAN NOT be copied from one machine to an other just so.

First, there are technical reasons (as you have seen), but also legal
reasons (Adobe forbids to distribute the Reader in any other form than the
installer provided by them).

Have your client properly install the Reader, and things should work out.

Hope, this can help.
