What is the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader

Q: What is the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader

Adobe Acrobat 4.0 was on my computer when I bought it. I have Windows ME. Recently I downloaded a free copy of the Acrobat Reader 6.0 but Adobe Acrobat is not free. Is Reader a part of Adobe Acrobat? Should I buy an updated version Adobe Acrobat and if so, what would be the advantage of doing so

Preferred Solution: What is the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: What is the difference between Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Reader

Adobe Acrobat is the full version which allows you to create and edit pdf files. Reader is free and is just the viewer that allows you to read pdf documents someone else has created. If you still have the full version of 4.0 it should still work fine for creating simple pdf documents. The advantage of upgrading is that 4.0 is no longer supported by Adobe and the more recent versions (they're up to 7 now) have many more features. You should keep your version of the Reader current because older versions of the Reader may not be able to open documents created with the newer versions of Acrobat. But if you don't use Acrobat very much for creating and editing (and it sounds like you don't), I don't see any need to purchase an upgrade. Hope that all made sense.

SITUATION
I created a pdf. file from a document that had 'fill-in forms'. I used Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0. to create the PDF file.

I then I burned the pdf. file on to a CD.

When I used my Adobe Reader 9.0 to open the PDF file, I could fill-in the forms, but not save them. I received a message that said I could not save the information, only print it unless I enabled the ‘local save capability’ in the original pdf. file.

I will be selling the CDs and need the buyer to be able to fill-in the forms, and then save the document on the CD or the buyer’s computer.

QUESTIONS
1. How do I enable the ‘local save capability’ on Adobe Acrobat Professional 6.0, saving the document with the information typed into the fill-in forms?

2. How can I write protect the pdf. file so no one can edit it (except for the fill-in fields) nor duplicate the disk?

3. Has anyone bought a software product from www.SoftCaptain.com and if yes, what was your experience with the software product company?

 

A:Adobe Acrobat Professional & Adobe Reader

I can't answer all of your questions, but data on a CD is read only, you won't be able to save the edited file on that CD.
It can only be saved on the hard drive & then burned to CD again, if necessary.

New version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for Windows 10, this is the free version. Wondering if anyone has tried this yet. Windows 10 does not come with a Reader like Windows 8.1 had it uses Microsoft Edge to open PDF. Not to my liking why i ask if anyone has tried it yet.

A:Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, anyone try this ?

Is working.

Apart from that it features a kind of cloud integration, which I do not want. And I think it has more adverts than Reader 11. All in all, I do not use it. There are way better alternatives out there: Nitro Reader 3 or Foxit Reader are both for free and can be installed on your PC. If you do not install a program, then PDFescape might be for you.

I have a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader 8.1.

When I try and view a PDF from the internet the cursor arrow hangs although the download status bar indicates completed. After three minutes hanging I get a window saying "There is a problem with Adobe Acrobat/Reader. Please exit Adobe Acrobat/Reader and try again". After closing the window suddenly the 'file not found' window flashes. Then I can read the PDF on the screen and navigate the pages.

When I try to print the document as usual I get a message, "Unable to start print job. Is printer available?". But the printer is available and nothing is wrong with the printer so this message is also odd.

I have tried to download a newer version of Acrobat/Reader 9 from the Adobe site but I get a message saying that it cannot install because of the older version already intalled. Therefore, I have tried to uninstall the older Adobe/Reader and then I get the message:

"This patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer patch package".

It is a genuine Adobe version which was installed from the beginning with my other software when I bought the computer.

Even if anyone can throw me a clue or set me on the right road to fixing this crazy problem I will be eternally grateful.

I recently started having problems on two computers that both run Win 7 64-bit. The problem is that when opening a PDF file I get this box indicating to choose these options and then there is a check box to not ask me about it again. If I check it off, it goes away.

Then when I try to close the tab that houses the PDF file, it will crash IE with acroread.dll being the culprit.

What happens next is that if I try to read another PDF, the same box that I already told not to come up again will come back. It seems like it isn't getting the proper permissions to hold this setting. I found a fix via Google that said to just open up the Reader program and check off the box there -- that fixed the pop up box problem.

The remaining problem is that regardless of if I update to the latest version of either program, I continue to have IE's tab crash whenever I close the tab that houses the PDF file.

I'm wondering if there is any fix this this? I never had this happen to me up until I'd say about two months ago. It was perfectly fine until then.

Thanks in advance.

Hiya

Adobe Acrobat Reader is a program used for reading PDF files. Acrobat Reader version 6.0.1 and possibly other versions are vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper handling of NULL characters. By creating a specially-crafted PDF file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system with user privileges, once the file is opened. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending the malicious file to a victim in an email

Platforms Affected:

Adobe Systems, Inc.: Acrobat Reader 6.0.1
Various: Any operating system Any version
http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/16667
Go here and get the update, or if you want, you can uninstall the version you have now, and install 6.0.2 Basic, which doesn't install the other stuff, and when fully installed, is just ~17MB large.

http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/alternate.html

Scroll down till you see this bit:

Adobe Reader 6.0.2, basic version
These downloads of Adobe Reader have already been updated to version 6.0.2.

Being the idiot I am, I forgot to make sure that nothing was installing onto my computer...

Ever since I decided to uninstall Adobe Reader 8 I believe it was (after installing Foxit and because of the security vulnerabilities), Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 Professional decided to install itself back onto here for whatever reason. I can't find it in the Add/Remove programs, so I can't really get it off of here unless there is a way to get it off of here. Any help is appreciated.

A:Uninstalling Adobe Acrobat Reader

Using Explorer, can you find the files and determine by its size (properties) if it is a full installation or just some dregs left over?
Cheers,
John

RELEVANCY SCORE 131.2

A couple of days ago I did a Windows ME reload using the OEM CD that came with my computer. Now when I try to install AR6 after downloading it from the Adobe site I get (in this order as I go through the install wizard):

"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.
Click OK to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'Adobe REdaer 6.0.1.msi in the box below"
The box contains this:
C:\WINDOWS\CACHE\ADOBE READER 6.0.1\ENUMIN\

Clicking Try Again with the box as it stands brings up:

"The path 'C:\WINDOWS\CACHE\ADOBE READER 6.0.1\ENUMIN\Adobe Reader 6.0.1.msi' cannot be found. Verify that you have access to this location and try again, or try to find the installation package 'Adobe Reader 6.0.1.msi' in a folder from which you can install the product Adobe Reader 6.0.1"

When I give up and click Cancel I get

"Error 1714: The older version of Acrobat Reader 6.0.1 cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group".

I have searched the Adobe site in vain (obviously downloading their .pdf files is impossible) and would be grateful for any help.
