Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Looking for Acrobat Reader 5.0.5

Trying to use The Best of Fine Homebuilding program. The disc came with Acrobat 5.0.5 on it, but it is not working. What to do? If I am able to download a more recent version, how do I get it to work with the FHB disk?

I have Adobe Reader 8 installed, but this is apparently not what the FHB software is looking for.

Fix Adobe Acrobat or Reader 9 Crash on Internet Explorer 7 Problem

Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader 9 enable the computer to view PDF files.
These applications also install an add on, or plug in a small software that adds extra features to a programto Internet Explorer 7, enabling IE7 to load PDF files from within the browser.

If conflicting add-ons are installed to the browser, or if the Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader software is not properly installed, however, IE7 will crash whenever it attempts to load a PDF.

Hold down "Alt" to show all of the toolbars.

Click "Tools" from the menu bar.
Click "Internet Options."

Go to the "Advanced" tab.
Click "Reset" to revert the Internet Explorer 7 settings to default.

Click "OK."
Restart Internet Explorer after resetting the browser.

Return to the "Tools" menu and click "Manage Add-ons."
Wait for all of the add-ons to load in the right pane, then look through the list to find the add-ons labeled "BHO" or "Browser Helper."

Click each add-on with "BHO" or "Browser Helper" in the name, then click "Disable." Restart IE when finished.

Download the Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader 9 software from the Adobe website, if you do not already have the setup program on your computer or on disc.

Click "Start."
Click "Control Panel."

Click "Programs," then click "Programs and Features."
Scroll to "Adobe Acrobat" or "Adobe Reader 9."

Right-click the program. Select "Uninstall" from the context menu.
Follow the onscreen directions to remove the software from the computer, then restart the PC.

Log back in to Windows and click "Start."
Click "Computer."

Navigate to the folder where the Adobe setup file is saved or insert the Adobe Acrobat CD.
If the file is saved on the computer, double-click the file to launch the installer.

Follow the onscreen prompts to reinstall the plug-in to Internet Explorer 7.
Restart the PC when the installation is complete.

Open Internet Explorer 7 after booting to Windows.
Open a PDF file from within the browser to test the browser.

Why is it when i try to open a file it says open with recommended programs. this happens to when i try to download. please help


That depends on what file you are trying to open. For instance, if it's a pdf, you need to open it with Acrobat Reader. If it's a doc, it is a Microsoft Word document. If it's a wpd, it's a Corel Wordperfect doc.
To get an idea what program is needed, go to this site and look up the file extension: www.fileext.com

Ensure that you only have one version of Adobe Acrobat installed. I've found that often enough, if Reader and the full version of Acrobat are installed at the same time, it can cause problems like these.

If that is the case, try uninstalling Reader, so that only Acrobat Standard remains.

I assume that you mean Adobe Acrobat reader. First of all make sure that you already have installed this program. Go at start - programs - and browse all programs to locate that Adobe Acrobat Reader existing. A good idea is to open it in order to check that it's fully working. In case of a problem download it from this official link. Since you are sure for the Acrobat Reader's existence, right click at any pdf file (these type of files open with Acrobat Reader) - choose open with - go at the bottom of the new window "choose program" - at the new window select Adobe Acrobat Reader (in case it is not available click on browse and navigate at the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader x.x\Reader, select the file AcroRd32, hit open - check the box for "open this kind of files always with the same program" - hit OK and you are ready. From now on every time you will double click at a pdf file the Acrobat Reader will open this file.

Help with PDF Documents Some documents on Maine.gov are provided in PDF format. In order to view or print PDF documents, you need the free Adobe Reader. Generally, you will find an alternative format is also provided for the document, such as Microsoft Word, HTML, or plain text. If you cannot access a document in PDF format and there is no alternative version, please contact the agency or contact the Maine.gov webmaster for assistance.

I AM TRYING TO FILL IN AN APPLICATION FORM IN A PDF FILE AND I DON'T GET ANY OPTIONS TO HIGHLIGHT TEXTS. IS IT BECAUSE THE COMPUTER I'M USING DOESN'T HAVE MICROSOFT WORD INSTALLED?


What program did you use to open the PDF? If you opened it with the default program, you probably used Adobe Reader which does not allow you to edit PDFs. You can import PDFs into several Office suites with add-ons. For example, Open Office 3 has a PDF add-on that lets the PDF be opened and modified in Draw and Impress. There are also online PDF editors and some low cost alternatives to Adobe Acrobat is the full program that makes PDFs. PDFill PDF Editor gets some good reviews
http://download.cnet.com/PDFill-PDF-Editor/3000-6675_4-10295757.html
as does www.pdfescape.com/ (an on-line option). Please note that most will put their logo on your document as a footer or somewhere unless you use a paid version.

I hope this helps.

(word does the PDF import more easily as I recall (possibly with an add-on) but there are alternatives.)

Adobe reader will not open received email attachments. Installed AR 7 still does not work


So big a program, so many problems and annoyances..

The best solution ever for those who just want a PDF reader without all the bells and whistles and associated rubbish that Adobe force you to contuinual update, is to get Foxit Reader from a secure source such as this link: -

http://download.cnet.com/Foxit-Reader/3000-10743_4-10313206.html

This just so simple and small it makes Adobe PDF Reader look like a lumbering dinosaur.

.pdf files in adobe reader 8.0


Hi Jim,

While I can't tell you why adobe 8 wants to save files before reading or printing, I can suggest that you try again to go to:

control panel in XP
add/remove programs
pick adobe 8 and uninstall it

If you still have the older version installed try to see if it works now. You may need to restart pc to get it working.
If not then uninstall all versions or READER you may have.
Restart computer.

Now go to ADOBE.COM and install VERSION 9, the latest, and try it out. Its best to go directly to the site from your browser rather than follow links of dubious origins.

If it STILL won't work right for you, then try the following.
Go to the link below and install the older version of READER that you liked. Its a fine website with OLDER versions of many programs.

http://oldversion.com/program.php?n=acrobat

Good luck Jim, and I beg you please don't vote for me unless I was able to FIXYA!
Thanks.
