I have a cd that needs Adobe Reader 6 to run. On my computer I have Adobe Reader 7. I am unable to open the cd. Any suggestions?

Hi rlight!

Apologizes for the delay!

It must be a pretty old CD if it's requiring Adobe Reader 6 to run. Adobe Reader 6 is severely outdated. The latest version of Adobe Reader is 10.1.2.

What type of CD is this that's requiring Adobe Reader 6 to run?

Let me know,

Kindest Regards,

You can download the reader from here: Old Version of Adobe Reader 6.0 Download - OldApps.com

You should scan the file before installing with your security programs. Better safe than sorry.

You should update the Reader 7 to the latest. All Adobe products are constantly being exploited by
malware. Best to have the latest security updates for Adobe products.
