Adobe Acrobat Professional & Adobe Reader

Q: Adobe Acrobat Professional & Adobe Reader

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?

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: 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.

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
 

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.

Not sure if I am in the correct forum for this query but here goes...

I use Firefox 1.5.0.1 and XP and have a new fast machine

Whenever I open a pdf doc off the web it comes up in a new tab but when I right click to close the tab it hesitates a little, closes but then my machine slows to almost to nothing.

I then have to ctrl alt del to bring up Task Manager and go into that find where Acrobat is still running and taking up 99% of the cpu resources and manually close it to get the machine back up to speed.

Any suggestions or cures wil be gratefully welcomed.

I bought the full download package from Adobe and couldn't be happier with its functionality.

My question: Before I bought it I checked to see if I could make a disk to keep and they assured me that I could. How do you make a disk to put away incase you want to reload it again? What files do you need?

Now I know I can always call them and they will reset my download. You are allowed to have it on two machines which I do. Home PC and Work Laptop.

The file that it resides in is 745MB which won't fit on a disk.

Could this be due to a change in your "open this kind of file with this program" settings? I don't know what system you're using but in my Windows 98 SE you'd access them with

File types seem to be listed alphabetically by extension. Scroll down, find "doc" or whatever kind of file you're trying to open, and see what's supposed to open it. If necessary, reset it to MS Word. Here's where Word is on my system; it may or may not be in the same place on yours:

Adobe Reader will not install due to an error messege, "Policy set by the administrator prohibits install of this program" (or something close to that). Anyways, there are no policies on this system for installs, or any others for that matter.
Any other program will install no problem, but Reader (versions 5.1 and 6.0) simply refuses to. I have logged on as local admin, another account with admin privledges and it still gives me the same error.

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.

The full version is if you want to distribute it to other pc's

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.
