Update Adobe Reader failed: This installation is forbidden by system policy (Error: 1625)

Adobe Reader Updater may report following error on Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2:


UAC may be reason for that.

  1. Run Adobe Reader as Administrator (use “Run as Administrator” context menu option on the Adobe desktop icon, for example).
  2. Select Help –> Check for Updates
  3. Follow the instructions: the update should succeed now.
  4. Enjoy!

If you get the error using Acrobat 9.0. Download the update from Adobe manually and then run it. This worked for me.
