I cannot install Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

First of all, I thought I already had Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, but I can't find it. So I have repeatedly downloaded the installer. Every time I try to install it, however, I get the same message: "Application initialization error." I have Safari OS X 10.11.3. I tried to install using that, same message. I then followed troubleshooting instructions. I tried to install using Chrome; same message. I tried using the link "Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Install for all versions;" same message. I have tried everything that I have seen online as possible solutions, but nothing has worked.

The "installer" you download is not the actual installer, it's a download manager which downloads and runs the action Reader installer. This does sometimes not work correctly on Mac OS X. You can work around this by downloading the full installer from here: http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise
