I'm trying to install Adobe Reader v2.0 in my Ipaq 2215, but when start the installation a window show the note "Are you want to completely remove Adobe Reader for Pocket Pc 2.0 and all its components?" Then another window "Error Number: 0x80040702 Description : Failed to load ll: Unistall"

Anybody can tell me what is going on or what's wrong?

It sounds as this program was already installed on your computer, and the files were manually removed, not through the Uninstall program.

Open the Control Panel, Ad/Remove Program and see if the Adobe program is still listed there (the Pocket PC one, not the desktop version!). Try removing from the list. If it's still showing the error then you might have to run a tweak program to remove the program from the list and try installing it again.

We all have a friend named Google. You should check out the program available for free at the top of this Google search called TWEAK UI. Be careful of other tweaking programs, a decent proportion of them contain adware/spyware (although there are several very good/safe ones out there too).

Always google any software you want to download to see if it contains adware or spyware...
