    I have an old program I need to install. It installs an old version of Adobe Reader in the installation process, so will it cause problems if I install this old version on the same computer that's running the latest version?

    Thanks in advance!

    If it's an old program that installs an old version of Adobe Reader as part of it, leave both the old and new versions of Adobe Reader installed.

    If you uninstall the old version and leave just the new version installed, that old program may not work properly.

    I recall that happening a few years ago after I installed a Bible-related program for a church pastor.
