Adobe Acrobat Reader for Windows XP

I just uninstalled my Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0, which apparently never got updated and did not work, and now I need to choose a later version compatible with Windows XP; however, I'm not sure if my older software can handle the latest version or not.  Which version should I use?  I'm not technically that savvy but know a few things!  Thanks! 

I cannot answer you a second time on your last reply in the forum, so am using email.  I wanted to mark your answer as correct so you'd get points and can do nothing.  I'm a new member.
The great news is I did get Adobe Reader installed this morning, (as I had to work on getting the Windows SP3 running yesterday.)  All your info was excellent!  Thank you so much again.
Other problems have arisen:  I can only manually open a pdf attachment to emails by manually bringing up Adobe Reader rather than clicking on the attachment and automatically viewing the pdf screen.  The older version opened it automatically in Firefox, so I don't think it's a Firefox problem, but could be since I'm a novice.  
I've done everything possible to troubleshoot this, taking an extra day to update other software, to no avail.  It now will not comply with all the automatic commands for my homepage, Intel pro-set wireless, and I cannot disable a toolbar I never saw before.  I have AVG 2014 but with the sp3 McAfee security; possibly they conflict.  All my updates for everything I can find are current.  It just may be time to take this pc to the shop.

  • Picture in PDF broken in Adobe Acrobat Reader for Windows

    I always thought that Adobe's PDF-format is the ultimative, interchangeable file format. Well, what a surprise: it isn't:
    I have a picture in a PDF document.
    It is displayed fine on my Mac in Preview and in Adobe Acrobat 8.
    The picture has severe distortions on Windows (eg. current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader).
    You can find this PDF here:
    Please let me know how I can fix this?
    Furthermore I would love to know why even Adobe cannot manage to display the PDF correctly under Windows?

    Ok, just to summarize the status of my PDF:
    Doesn't work in Adobe Acrobat X Pro (Win XP)
    Doesn't work in Adobe Acrobat Reader X (Win XP)
    Works just fine in Evince (Win XP)
    Works in Adobe Acrobat 8 Pro (Mac)
    Works in Preview (Mac)
    Works in Skim (Mac)
    So most of the rederers tested display it correctly. For me that looks like a huge inconsitency in the Adobe Acrobat product family. It is not platform specific, because it does work in Windows as well (using other renderers).
    I have two issues with that:
    How come that Adobe Acrobat seems to be the only renderer with issues with this file?
    Why do some version of Adobe Acrobat display it, while others don't?
    To me that really sucks since I trusted the portability of PDF and my own Pro version of AA on my Mac far too much!
    My lessons learnt here: Do not use Adobe products since they cannot be used consistently accross platforms (see Flash for another example).
    Since the support policy of Adobe does only offer this forum free-of-charge even for obviously valid bugs, I decline to report this (again) as a bug due to my own time constraints.

  • I have adobe acrobat pro for windows and it is freezing up when I try to convert a word file to pdf... I have tried to get this done six ways from Sunday but it is just not working... help!  Chris.

    I have adobe acrobat pro for windows and it is freezing up when I try to convert a word file to pdf... I have tried to get this done six ways from Sunday but it is just not working... help!  Chris.

    It would be helpful to know what version of Acrobat, WORD, and operating system.
    Without that info, I would suggest at this point to open your WORD file and then go to the print menu and print to file using the Adobe PDF printer. Open the created file in Distiller and see if you get a PDF. If so, check to see if AcroTray is running in the background.
    You say you tried many ways. It would help to know what you tried and what worked or did not work, and at what point the failure occurs.

  • Adobe Acrobat Reader for Chrome OS

    Will Adobe release a version of their Adobe Acrobat Reader for Chrome OS?
    We are currently experiencing problems with our clients that are unable to open certificate encrypted and signed PDFs with their built-in Chrome OS PDF viewer (certificate to decrypt the PDF is provided separately to the client).
    If anybody has a workaround or the solution for this problem, then please respond.

    Isn't Chrome OS just another Android?  Can you try to install the Android version of Adobe Reader:

  • Adobe Acrobat Reader for IPad2

    Please help me because I'm going nuts. Government Canada keeps asking that I upgrade to latest Version of Adobe and will not let me print forms or fill online forms.
    I've reloaded latest IPad app yet get the same message.
    Has the newest version of Adobe Acrobat reader got any conflict issues? Is there an older version that will work? Or am I doing something wrong all of a sudden? Up until a few weeks ago I could open PDF files in Acrobat. Now, sadly, no more!!!
    I would really appreciate your help with this.

  • I have Adobe Acrobat Professional for Windows XP operating system.  I now have Windows 8.

    How do I download the patch to convert from Windows XP to Windows 8?

    I am using 6.0   It loads but with errors.

  • How far can we rely on Adobe Acrobat Reader?

    We are contemplating to move to the Paperless Office solution with Adobe Acrobat as the backbone.
    Only 2-3 people in the office will be responbible for scanning documents (using the scanning facility provided by Adobe Acrobat) and merging them with existing PDF files by inserting pages etc.
    We were wondering if it would be advisable to get 2-3 licenses of Adobe Acrobat full version for these people while the rest of the users could probably do with Adobe Acrobat Reader as they would only read the PDF files containing the scanned documents and search for information inside.
    (1) Kindly advise me if deployment of 2-3 licenses of Adobe Acrobat full-version for the concerned users and Adobe Acrobat Reader for the rest is a good solution.
    (2) Also, I would like to know if Adobe Acrobat Reader offers the same extent of search facilities as the full version (for instance search through index).
    Thank you for your usual good advices.

    Acrobat and Reader have a search and a find facility. The find facility is the same. Once the pdf file or files have been cataloged/indexed then the search facility is the same, but Reader cannot create the catalogue and/or index. I find the facility to catalog and search through a group of documents to be invaluable. The set of documents that need to be indexed may vary by user. If your two or three Acrobat powered users are willing to catalog many of the files for your users, then it is workable. If your users really use large documents the search facility is crucial. I regularly need to search for things in a document that is over 500 pages long, find just takes too long. Seach is really crucial and saves time.
