I have the same problem with Acrobat (editor, not reader).
The Help About box says it's version 8.1.2.
The EXE says it's file version 8.1.0.137.
Secuina PSI says it's version 8.1.1.20.
I tried running AcrobatUpd820_all_incr.msp but that failed with a message saying it was trying to update the wrong version of the program.
Looking at http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp... it seems that there are a dozen or so updates I need to apply to bring me up to date, none of which are detected by the Updater.
No wonder I'm confused!

i still have this problem indeed

Also, all others with similar problems.

Please seek solutions to your problem by starting a new thread in the "PSI" thread using Adobe (name of program) as the topic. Explain what the problem is and someone will help you!


Thank you;

Fred
