Adobe Acrobat 9 side-by-side errors

I get the following error in the event log:

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Designer 8.2\FormDesigner.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "" on line . A component version required by the application conflicts with another component version already active. Conflicting components are:. Component 1: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\ Component 2: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\

How do I go about sorting this out.

From Adobe support forums

I see you're on a 64-bit system - although Acrobat 9 installs and runs OK on x64 Windows, that error event is commonly seen, is a known bug, and can be ignored. It's a clash over the version of components that we load from the common libraries built into Windows. .
Waiting for Adobe software fix
Just set compatibility to Windows XP SPK2 for all users for the formdesigner.exe.
