So you get the message “Metafile Download Failed Error” when you try to download Adobe Reader or Flash for that matter. Fear not!
The only reason I’m posting this fix is because so many people I’ve talked to have spoken about it, so here’s the easiest way to get around it I guess.
Download the installer from http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/ for your Adobe Reader errors, this should fix it, if not let me know. If you are looking to download Flash and you’re getting that error, then go to http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/fp_distribution3.html to download it via the download manager.
This is pretty much the easiest way to get around that error. I think it’s just an error with the air app that’s trying to install reader/flash or something like that. If you are having this problem after you try this method, drop a comment below and I’ll see if I can help you out.
