Hello, well its been a while since ive had any issues and aI recently came up with one I cant quite conquer. My Adobe program to view PDF files was the newer 7.0 version. I needed to get a Photo editing program and found Adobe PhotoShop 4.0 among a few CD-Roms I had. I loaded it up and cool....freebie I already had. However, now when I am trying to view a PDF file, it loads up and then says DONE.......but has no info on the screen. Ive come to realize that its trying to use Adobe 4.0 to view the file, and the files arent in the old format. I dont want to loose my PhotoShop either. I looked in C/Program Files/Adobe and this is what I have. A folder for Adobe 4.0, Adobe 5.0 (apparently ther B4 the 7.0 update, Adobe 7.0 and Adobe PhotoShop 4.0. My question B4 I f*ck up is, can I delete the 4.0,5.0 Adobe without doing anything to the PhotoShop operations? And keep 7.0 or get an update while maintaining 4.0P.Shop? THX in advance, Michel

If it were me, I'd uninstall everything and start all over. I would install the viewer first. When you're installing either one, when it prompts you to do a normal or custom install, I would choose custom. That way you install exactly what you need and possibly not install 2 of the same items. Hope that makes sense. One more option to consider is to use foxit .pdf viewer. It's a lot less bloated than Adobe

Hi Mark, just wanted to say thank you for the Foxit viewer link. I've been having trouble downloading Adobe reader on this spare PC I've got, it gets to 79% each time, then fails.

But I tried Foxit, and maybe because its only 1.67mb, it loaded, and I've been able to view the pdf links that someone put on here for me re my front panel connections.

Much appreciated, even though it wasn't for me!!!!
