Acrobat Reader Versions

P: n/a
Hi all people, everybody,

We have multiple versions of Acrobat Reader from 5.x to 8.x,

I want to create a method in C# or VB.NET to check to see if the registry
key for the versions exists, and if so uninstall it, then install the latest
version.

I have all the registry key locations and the commands to uninstall the
software, just need to put it all together...
