Can you give more information?  Error number? The exact error message?  How far through the installation it happens?

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts


After initializing this is the error message " Checking System profile - System check critical errors were found in the setup for Adobe setup. The installer database is invalid: please re-install the product from from the original media".

I can install this product on other end users computers without any problems.
