    Installing Adobe Acrobat (Windows XP PRO, Office XP Pro)

    OK i give up. How do you install Adobe Acrobat 5 so that the icons appear in office apps particularly word? We are getting new computers this week with the XP operating system and office XP pro. The first machine to arrive did not have adobe acrobat installed. We put in Adobe4, upgraded to 5, and when we went into word the Icons were not there.

    Can someone provide a step by step procedure for this so we do not have to call our IS department again????/
    Thanks

    First, check File Locations, Startup setting (Tools | Options | File Locations).

    Make a note of the folder listed for Startup. Now try to write a file to that folder
    using Word or copy a file there using Windows Explorer. Was that operation
    succesful? If not, the folder is read only and the Acrobat Installer will not
    copy there either.


    >>The first machine to arrive did not have adobe acrobat install
    p.s. You do mean Acrobat and not Acrobat Reader, right? I've never heard
    of PCs shipping from Dell or Gateway of whoever with Acrobat installed. But
    what do I know....

    P.S. Dell is bundling Acrobat 5 with MS Office on Latitude notebooks.

    Such a deal. What impact do you think XDocs will have on Acrobat sales after Office 11 ships?

    Re: Installing Adobe Acrobat (Windows XP PRO, Office XP Pro)

    These PC's are coming from our IS department...Right now, the guy has tried to install acrobat, cannot get the icon to show in WORD XP, cannot get the Acrobat menu addition, and cannot print pdf's at all. He installed Acrobat 4, then updated with the 5 update disk, then went to adobe and got the 5.01 patch and downloaded that...but still no dice.
