Anyone else having trouble getting this update to install? 

I've tried multiple times, including from Acrobat after completely shutting
down my system and every time it says that it detects that FM is open and
cannot install. At least twice, FM was definitely not open.

Wondering if it's just my system or if others are having the same problem. I
was really hoping to get my dictionary working properly.
