Adobe Reader

By WinCan ·
Hello,

I am trying to access a file on a web page ona network that requires Adobe Reader. With every attempt my browser window IE 5 just hangs and the Reader never opens. The page was created on a version 3 or 4 and I have tried using Reader version 3 and 5.

Any suggestions?

I have had problems with reader 5 on W95 PCs.
Reader version 4 worked okay for me.

You may need to upgrade to either IE5.5 or 6.0

Alternately, give Mozilla a try www.mozilla.org
They have specific instructions for installing the plug-ins forreader and other web software.

If the document is large it may timeout before it can open. On a PC (not MAC) right-click on the link and "save target as". Open Reader by itself and then open the document.

Good Luck.
