Adobe Acrobat Reader



I was reading on a site a couple of hours ago and it was talking about how Adobe Acrobat Reader was a third party software. Someone told me how 3rd party programs are like programs that can run in the background and do other things windows cannot do, like disable display properties and such things like that. The question im asking is, why do they call Adobe Acrobat Reader a 3rd party software and what does it do? I never use it?

You'll find you'll need it sooner or later. It reads .pdf files & a lot of things now come in .pdf format. Manuals & that type of thing that you will need to read.


Ohhh so kinda like getting a cell phone manual, car manual, and vcr manuals, things like that I would get from the internet?
Yep, and because windows doesn't have 'resident' capablity to read the .pdf format, you need third party support (Acrobat Reader).

Possibly. I was thinking more sound card, graphics, computer things but yes those things as well. It's a bit like a word document. (doc files)


Ahhh another question came to my mind. Could I type something in Acrobat Reader?? and how i dont see New under file and when i typed it, would it be in .pdf format?


Is there a specific version of 'Adobe Acrobat' for xp.
I had problems with the distiller/writer. Installation goes through with no errors. However the "acrobat printer" is not added.

any suggestions?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
