I have just downloaded the above but my computer will not open it. Every time it starts up in tries to install Microsoft windows journal viewer but even though i have shortcut it isnt on there. I do still have AR 5.1 on and have no problems?

what's your OS? as Acrobat Reader 6 doesn't run on win98. That's why I'm sticking (stuck)with Acrobat Reader 5

This is on the PCA cover disk but uninstall AR5 first or it can cause errors,i have 98 se and it works a treat.

Try right clicking the icon and selecting properties.

On the Shortcut tab the Target should be:

"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 6.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"

This is a well known problem, see here....
click here

the summary of it is....Uninstall the Reader. Uninstall the Journal Viewer. Reinstall the Reader. If you need it, reinstall the Journal Viewer.

digital imaging toolkit cd,or the hutchinson history reference cd.

removed MWJV and AR 6 loaded OK. But do I need the Journal viewer?

Just bought Britannica 2004 DVD. It has A.R 6 to be installed.......it won't install. Already have AR5.1. but keep getting told to look at attrib to see if hidden......it isn't thus I can't use 'Time Lines', if I do screen goes blank & I have to restart.Get message 'A component of Quick Time that is not installed on this machine is required for full media functionality'.
a) is it necessary to delete AR 5.1 first?
b) I installed 5.1. over v.4 without trouble why the hassle now ? (v.4 has been deleted)
O.S is Win.98
