    If you scroll down to the near bottom of this page and click on System Requirements, you will see that Vista is not supported. If uninstalling Foxit reader, rebooting, then installing Foxit again does not resolve your problem, then I would assume Vista is your problem.

    You might try Sumatra PDF. It is another very capable and well liked alternative pdf viewer and according to its system requirements, does still work with Vista.

    Are you trying to install a new version for the first time or update an existing version. Also is this the free version or a paid version. It looks like the latest versions do not support Vista so you will have to download and install and older version. Try installing the one from the following link:

    Foxit Reader 9.3 | Software Downloads | Techworld
    I try to respond in 24-48 hours normally and I am more active on weekdays than weekends. However, sometimes due to my health, family or life it may take me a little longer. If you have not heard from me within 72 hours then please PM me a reminder.

    Thanks guys for your swift reply and Digerati see I do see that vista is not supported on the some sites but on others the foxit reader 9.3 vista 64 is supported that why this is so confusing. Dmccoy thanks for your input as well the download you recommend says that it support vista 64 bit but avast my anti virus block the download for virus threats. This is the first time installing foxit and I have tried to install the older version but I received the same error the procedure entry point could not be located in the dynamic link library kernel32 .dll . The amazing part about this issue is my vista is updated with the current updates because I found on the internet windows 2008 update repository greenhillmaniac which allows vista users to update their windows vista to the year 2020. I will try the older versions again and I will report the results. Thanks again for your concerted input I know that with your help the next move will be the correct one.
