I hope it's okay to post about (yet another) compatibility issue with Vista! ;)

Some of you may know already, but the latest version of Adobe Reader (Acrobat DC) only supports Windows 7 and later. However, I extracted the installer and got an MSI out of it. I edited the MSI with Orca and removed the NT 6.1 restriction, and it installed without errors. However, getting it to run is a different story.

Judging by the error message attached, it appears that there's a missing call in USER32.dll called GetTouchInputInfo.

I don't know if it can be stubbed or not, and I lack the necessary skills to do it myself.

Would anyone here be interested in stubbing this call (or even finding out if it can be done)? Any help is greatly appreciated. Attached File  Error.png   102.54KB   0 downloads

I am willing to bet that it could be. The size that Acrobat reader has grown to is absolutely ridiculous. 75 MB download :\

I guess it isn't really much of an issue since alternatives such as Foxit Reader still support Vista. But it would be interesting if somebody could get it going anyway.

It would indeed be very interesting to see it work in Vista. But yeah, Adobe products in general are quite bloated now. Reader is of no exception, and I personally am not a fan. Nitro PDF and Foxit are pretty nice alternatives. UI is a lot like Office 2010 too.

I prefer Sumatra PDF.  Any Adobe can bite me.

Yes, Sumatra is really nice. UI is very Vista fitting too with color scheme and such. But it's not an actual PDF editor, but neither is Reader for that matter. Not the free version anyway. Though it can perform signatures. For professional purposes, have been a little reliant on working with a lot of PDF formats.
