    Acrobat Reader 6.02 (WinXP Pro SP2)

    I'm wondering if anyone on this forum knows where I might find a copy of Acrobat Reader 6.02. The Reader has been upgraded to version 7.0, which, unfortunately, makes it incompatible with my pdf file generator. I managed to find a copy of version 4 on an install disk, but that old version is really funky!

    Once Adobe finishes with a version, it really disappears!

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    All the old versions from 6.0.1 and down are available on the Adobe site archive page http://www.adobe.com/products/acroba...r_archive.html

    Hi John,
    The product I have been using is ScanSoft PDF Create 2.0 (http://www.scansoft.com). It is their current product. It can create the pdf file, but the problem comes when one tries to combine several different files into one pdf file. I generate reports for clients and provide a hard copy (paper) and a CD so that they can make more copies if they need to. The reports exist on my HDD as various file types such as MS Word, JPGs, and PDF. Before Acrobat 7, these could all be converted and placed into one big pdf file that I could then provide to the client on a CD. Apparently ScanSoft PDF Create uses the default program to "print" the file to a pdf and then does its combination. Thus, MS Word is used for the *.doc files, Adobe Photoshop Elements (in my case) for the *.jpgs, and Acrobat for the pdfs. Acrobat 7 is not compatible with ScanSoft PDF Create at this time. I should have thought of that before I let it upgrade!

    Frankly, this is important enough that I'm thinking I may as well get Adobe Acrobat 7 Standard. It costs a chunck, but I do need the facility in my business. The "shortcut" could cost me much more in the long run.
