  • There really isn't enough information in your post to be very helpful.

    You have Server 2012, you are trying to install Adobe Reader.

    Since it is server, did you install using run as administrator? to elevate your permissions?

  • Okay, this begs the question, what else was installed?

    is this a fresh server build?

    Is this some pre-built VM?

    Is this from an Azure template?
