Trying to get Acrobat 7.1.4 installed on Windows 98

Recommended Posts

Not sure if it's appropriate to post on this thread, but it's the newest one related to Acrobat.

I'm trying to get Acrobat 7.1.4 installed on Windows 98.

I've download AdbeRdr710_en_US.exe but it failed to execute on Windows 98.

I found an old post by Tihiy demonstrated running AR7 on 98: http://www.msfn.org/board/acrobat-reader-7-t72627.html

Yet, I'm still stuck.

I just want to address the vulnerability posted on 13 Oct 2009: http://www.adobe.com/support/security/bull.../apsb09-15.html

Perhaps of use:

"Also Adobe Reader 7.0.9.

How to install:

Download: http://ardownload.adobe.com/pub/adobe/read...dr709_en_US.exe

- Set AdbeRdr709_en_US.exe Compatibility mode to Windows 2000

- Execute AdbeRdr709_en_US.exe

- Installer unpacks files and then fails.

- Browse to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Setup Files\RdrBig709\ENU

- Using Orca, make the following changes to Adobe Reader 7.0.9.msi:

- Drop row UnSupportedOS (Version9x) from both InstallExecuteSequence and InstallUISequence

- Execute setup.exe

- Remove Adobe Reader Speed Launch from the Startup menu to prevent problems.

- If Acrobat Reader 6 or Acrobat 6 is installed, then run an install repair. This is to repair the Adobe Shell Extensions. The reason for this is that pdfshell.dll from 7.x is not compatible with Windows 9x and causes long hangs in Windows Explorer anytime there are PDF files in the current folder and you click on them...

- Then repair each Acrobat Reader 6/Acrobat 6 update in order (assuming all updates are installed):

-- Adobe Acrobat - Reader 6.0.2 Update

-- Adobe Interactive Forms Update SP1

-- Adobe Acrobat and Reader 6.0.3 Update

-- Adobe Acrobat and Reader 6.0.4 Update

-- Adobe Acrobat and Reader 6.0.5 Update

-- Adobe Acrobat and Reader 6.0.6 Update

If you don't have a copy of Acrobat Reader or Acrobat already installed, then you will have to manually remove the following registry keys:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{F9DB5320-233E-11D1-9F84-707F02C10627}

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Acrobat.AcroAXDoc.1

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AcroExch.Document

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AcroExch.Document.7

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ColumnHandlers\{F9DB5320-233E-11D1-9F84-707F02C10627}

If Adobe Reader 7.0 is not default, the use right-click Open With and select Adobe Reader 7.0 or make it the default.

I'm not sure about the Adobe Shell Extensions incompatibility with Windows 98.

Another reason for trying to get Acrobat 7.1.4 installed is that embedded PDF on html is not working for AR6. If the embedding thing for AR7.1.4 is not compatible, it's no use getting it installed.

The way to install AR7.1.4 is as follows:

1. install AR7.1.0

2. install AR7.1.3 update

3. install AR7.1.4 update

As quoted by cure, I showed instructions for installing Adobe Reader 7.0.9.

I never did get 7.1.0 or newer to work...
