Adobe Acrobat Reader file handle invalid

  mxyzptlk 17:13 12 Sep 2006

I am running WinXp Home Edition. I've downloaded Acrobat Reader 7.0 but when I try to run it I get an error message saying "the handle is invalid". There is no error code.

I have ensured that the telephony service is running since I believe it is required. Have also uninstalled Acrobat and deleted all references in documents and settings and the registry before re-downloading and installing again. The same result.

Cannot now think of anything else and can't find a solution on the web. Can anyone help?

Thanks VoG, great piece of software. Goodbye Acrobat! (but I'd still like to know why it wouldn't work).
