View Full Version : Acrobat Reader 6.0

29-09-2003, 02:34 PM
Hi and help, please,

I am trying to install Acrobat Reader 6.0 on a Windows 98 SE system and keep getting a "operating system not suppoted" message. The message is the same, regardless of whether I try to install from the website or from a PC World disc.
I previously had Reader 5.0 working on the same system and have now uninstalled it but this has made no difference. I have also recently installed Spybot- Search and Destroy but that may be irrelevant.
Many thanks again for comment.

When you say from the website did you select the operating system etc on the adobe us site or is this just a generic download from another site??

Been there, posted the problem, received the bad news.

Check out This Thread (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=38932&message=194419&q=adobe#194419) which suggests that W98 OE & SE don't get on with this incarnation of Acrobat Reader V6.0.

V6.01 might be a different story if and when it arrives.

I'd do a Google search though, just in case some knowledge base has developed since V6.0 was released. That or look at Adobe's site FAQ.

I run Win98SE, put on Acrobat 6, no problems but slow to load as in Acrobat 5.

Many thanks. Have given up on 6.0 and have reinstalled 5.1 and it goes just fine.....
