View Full Version : Adobe Recomposing?

06-06-2003, 03:17 PM
When installing the new Adobe Reader 6, it comes up with Netopsystems FEAD Optimiser, and says that Adobe Reader 6 is being recomposed?

What exactly is it doing?

Maybe it will play a new tune?

I think it must be that it uses quite a nice compressoin algorithm and it's just busy uncompressing.

Takes an aweful long time for a 16MB file.. even on a Duron 1.3Ghz it took over 1 1/2 minutes!

Maybe its analysing Mozart? ;-)

Ended up closer to 40MB once installed though.

I have a more serious problem: the "recomposing" hangs at about half-way (either at 52 or 57%).
I have Windows 98 SE. I disable my virus scanner and my firewall before starting the installation process.

Any ideas?

some antvirus's get in the way when unpacking compressed files resulting in coruption. not sure with the firewall but every bit of free resources helps.
