PDF to Text converter

  buckland 20:13 21 Apr 2008

I have Adobe Reader to convert an y PDF receipts into text. Now it seems to have packed up so I have attempted to unload it and reinstal. I am getting an Error 1714 message telling me The Older Version of Adobe Reader 8.1.2. cannot be removed. Contact your technical Support? This leads me to Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and then "Caution is Advised" and, being non-technical the advice to follow frightens me to death. Can I ignore all this and rather than mess with my PC just let this collapsed Adobe lie doggo and install a free PDF to Text converter and, if so, can anyone recommend one to me. I am hoping that the remnants of the Adobe can be left alone. Many thanks. Buckland.

Plenty of free ones from Google .. click here

But I would advise you to get rid of Adobe completely, this should do that for you .. click here

If you use the WICUU just select Adobe and click the remove button. I suggest a reboot and re-install then remove from Add/Remove immediately. One more reboot required.

click here and take the free download. There are limitations to the trial version but it works fine within these.
