Hi, I have adobe acrobat 6.0 but it won't run on windows 7, is there an update availabe?

I agree with Doc, but there may be a work around. Actually, your best solution is to just buy AA XI. The work around depends on what you mean by does not work. Do Acrobat and Distiller both install and appear to function? Is the problem one of not being able to print? If both of these answers are yes, then you can install an independent PS printer (maybe one from Adobe or one of the HP color PS printers), change the name to Adobe PDF for your use (not required), and change the port to FILE. Then to create a PDF you would print to that printer and open the file created in Distiller to create a PDF file. May or may not work. However, AA6 is so old, it is likely to cause other problems, even if this process works. If nothing else, it will not open some of the newer PDFs that are being created today (at least I would guess that will be the case). So buying XI is really in order.
Other issues that may crop up will be activation (will likely fail) and updates that have to be obtained from the FTP site and not the web.

    Okay - just realised that the last screen was just asking for a "title" for my question!
    I have Adobe Acrobat XI standard, but would like to trial the "compare documents" feature on Pro. I tried to download a trial version of Pro, but the installer indicated that "it detected a more fully featured version of the product" - presumably my standard version? - and stopped installation. It is not clear to me what my options are for either upgrading to Pro, or selectively purchasing the "compare documents" plugin (if possible). I am using what is presumably an Enterprise version of acrobat (i.e. my employer owns it, not me) - so not sure what limitations that results in. I think this is a simple question, but would be grateful for advice.

    - You can't install Acrobat Pro alongside Acrobat Standard. You will need to remove Standard to be able to install Pro.
    - You (probably) can't upgrade your license if it's a part of an enterprise license. The entire license will need to be upgraded.
    - It's not possible to install just the "Compare Documents" function as a sort of add-on to Acrobat Standard.

    I have Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 version 9.5.2 running on my mac. I recently reinstalled my mac from a backup and now Acrobat will not update. Thanks Glyn.

    Hi  GlynIC,
    What exactly is happening when you try to update.
    How are you trying to update it, using patch or doing a check for update from application itself.

  • I've tried to troubleshoot downloading Firefox but it won't open on Windows XP. The Firefox Update box with the hour glass symbol runs for hours. Then I have trouble even shutting down. When I click on Firefox, no window, program won't quit, etc....

    Windows XP. I used to use Firefox and it worked okay. I'm not sure why I downloaded a new version but it won't open. The window that says "Firefox Update" continues to try to load. Hour glass symbol, for hours. If I try to click on the Desktop symbol, Nothing. Then when I try to shut down, it's slow, programs won't quit, or it freezes. I've removed Firefox completely and tried downloading again with the same results. Even with the latest version. Shit. Whassup?

    Hi zenithtwc, to test whether this is a settings issue, could you do a three-minute experiment?
    '''Create a new Firefox profile'''
    A new profile will have your system-installed plugins (e.g., Flash) and extensions (e.g., security suite toolbars), but no themes, other extensions, or other customizations. It also should have completely fresh settings databases and a fresh cache folder.
    Exit Firefox and start up in the Profile Manager using Start > search box (or Run):
    firefox.exe -P
    ''Don't delete anything here.'' Any time you want to switch profiles, exit Firefox and return to this dialog.
    Click the Create Profile button, assign a name like Test731, and skip the option to change the folder location. Then start Firefox in the new profile you created.
    Can it reach the internet?
    When returning to the Profile Manager, you might be tempted to use the Delete Profile button. But... it's a bit too easy to accidentally delete your "real" profile, so I recommend resisting the temptation. If you do want to clean up later, I suggest making a backup of all your profiles first in case something were to go wrong.

  • How do I have Adobe Acrobat 9.0 calculate the minimum of 10 fields BUT ignore empty fields?

    How do I have Adobe Acrobat 9.0 calculate the minimum of 10 fields BUT ignore the field if it is empty? Currently it counts blanks as 0 so when it comes up with the minimum it will always show 0 unless all 10 fields have values in them.

    You could loop through the fields and add the non-blank values to an array, and use the Math.min method to get the minimum. Here's an example custom Calculate script:
    // Custom calculate script
    (function () {
        // Array to hold non-blank field values
        var fa = [];
        // Loop through the fields...
        for (var i = 1; i < 11; i += 1) {
            // ...get the current field value, as string...
            var v = getField("text1." + i).valueAsString;
            // ...if not blank, add value to the array, as a number
            if (v) fa.push(+v);
        // Set this field's value to the minimum value in the array, otherwise blank
        event.value = fa.length > 0 ? Math.min.apply(null, fa) : "";
    This assumes the fields are named "text1.1", "text1.2", ..."text1.10" and that they're numeric. This type of field naming simplifies the code, so it would be good to use something similar and adjust the getField statement to match.

  • 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.

    From the Custom Setup dialog box that opens, select Languages and choose English as the desired language for the software.
    Hope this helps you.

  • HT4356 Fillable pdf in Adobe Acrobat Professional X but when I try to use the Airprint feature the form print minus the field data, have anyone been able to resolve this issue?

    I have developed a fillable pdf in Adobe Acrobat Professional X but when I try to use the Airprint feature the form print minus the field data, have anyone been able to resolve this issue?

    Hi,
    I had a similar problem and found help for it. Go to the "Advanced" menu and select Extend features in Adobe Reader. That will enable rights which may resolve your problem. If that doesn't work, there is a really helpful guy in here, Robert Levine. You may want to ask him directly.
    Good Luck

    i have purchased adobe acrobat 10 standard ,but i want to downgrade to acrobat 9 standard,can be done or not?

    No, Adobe is no longer selling any version of Acrobat 9 and the program is EOL, anyway, with only the most critical issues being patched.

    To install/update Adobe Reader or Acrobat you need to supply your computer's Administrator password.

  • I was able to open a pdf document but was unable to save to my computer.  I have adobe acrobat pro x

    I was able to open a pdf document but was unable to save to my computer.  I have adobe acrobat pro xi.  the message i received was.  "the document could not be saved.  there was a problem reading the document (8)."
    I was able to convert it to a Word document  and then save, but I should not have to do that.

    Did you try a Save As? What OS? Have you updated Acrobat?
    Another alternative is to print to a new PDF. That is probably a better work flow than going to WORD and back.
