Adobe Acrobat Reader

Many of our files have been converted into the Adobe Acrobat, Portable Document File (PDF) format to retain the publication quality and formatting of the original document.   A PDF file will allow you to view, navigate, search and print with excellent results, regardless of your computer platform.  You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 to view these files. Documents created using Adobe Acrobat 3.0 may not be opened with version 2.1 of the reader.

Saving PDF files to your hard drive

To read a PDF file off-line in a stand alone application (i.e., Acrobat Reader or Acrobat Exchange, you must download it to your hard drive and then open it in the appropriate application.

Easy Installation and Set-Up Tips:

From the Adobe Acrobat 'Free Reader' download page choose your system format (i.e. Win95, Mac, OS2...) click on the file and save to your hard drive. (Put it someplace where you can easily find it... some sort of temporary file).

After it has downloaded, quit all running programs, open the file folder where you downloaded Acrobat Reader and double-click on the program icon. The program will self-extract and lead you through the simple set-up process.

After the Acrobat Reader has been sucessfully installed, click on the program icon and open-up the Reader. Go up to 'File', to 'Preferences', and to 'Weblink'. Check to make sure that the Reader has found your internet browser, if not... click on "browse" and find it manually.
