This package was approved as a trusted package on 4/11/2017.

Adobe Reader is the global standard for reliably viewing, printing, and commenting on PDF documents. It's the only PDF file viewer that can open and interact with all types of PDF content, including forms and multimedia.

This package installs the updater for the reader.
I don't know if this package will work or for how long it will work. Adobe made this really difficult to maintain.

To install Adobe Reader DC Update, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install adobereader-update

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
