Acrobat Reader running from CD

You are probably looking for my PDF on how to run Acrobat Reader v4 from a CD - approximately 400kb. Current version v1.2.3, 09 Dec 99. PDF change log. It is worth checking the log to see if any changes are relevant or not to your use of the information in the PDF. Don't forget - if your browser is set to open/read PDFs and you just want to download the file, in Windows right-click and use "Save Target As..." and on Macs click/hold for the context menu and "Save Target As...".

I'm not a programmer/Postscript expert - indeed, that is the very reason I did the research that became this PDF. However, lest you worry, I have had some more experienced Acrobat users proof the document before its release.

I can't provide tech support on this subject, but please let me know if there are any serious errors/omissions in the document- or if it has helped you. If so, please email me.

The PDF was created in Word97/Acrobat v4 but should read fine in Exchange/Reader v3. The main topics covered are:

The PDF has internal bookmarks and some external (web) links for major references.

Enjoy!
