    It seems DC is the latest version so uninstall old one first and go for it.

    Do either support thumbnails view under file explorer? I seem to remember an old version of Adobe did provide this feature but they long since removed the feature - totally bewildering as to why they thought they was a proactive move

    excerpt :
    About:

    Adobe Acrobat Reader DC software is the free global standard for reliably viewing, printing, and commenting on PDF documents.
    And now, it's connected to the Adobe Document Cloud − making it easier than ever to work across computers and mobile devices.
    It's the only PDF viewer that can open and interact with all types of PDF content, including forms and multimedia.

    It seems Acrobat Reader DC doesn't support Windows XP anymore. I learnt it yesterday. Keep in mind that there are a lot of lightweigh alternatives out there: PDF XChange Viewer, Foxit, Sumatra, etc...

    Maybe you are right.
    The excerpt I posted said " Adobe Acrobat Reader DC software is the free global standard............And now, it's connected to the Adobe Document Cloud ".
    So, I assume cloud service is also free.

    Now I tried to update Adobe Rd 11 to DC with Offline DC installer. It took the path program files x86 so I cancelled the install, first removed Rd 11 and then installed from Offline DC installer but it again took path program files x86 wherein it should have been installed in simple program files. I am having Windows 10 64 bit on a 64 bit System. Any idea, why it installed in 32 bit program files.

    It is quite common for programs to install 32bit versions on a 64bit system. My Adobe DC did that too. In fact MS Office insists on installing the 32bit version on a 64bit system and states that it provides better compatibility with other programs. I think it will work better that way so I just leave it as the default.
