Additional Comments

Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Pro Upgrade. I have done a minimum installation. If you have a CD with the installation files, copy the data files to your disk and change rights of 'setup.exe' (right click and 'Properties') to 'Allow to run as a program' and run the installation from here. The installation went smoothly (no errors). Even asked for the original Acrobat 5.0 disk for confirmation of upgrade rights during the setup.
