Hi, you cannot run Acrobat 7.0 on Windows 7 because it is not compatible with it and you need to purchase a upgrade from Adobe.com.
Well, if you do not want to upgrade Acrobat to 9.0 version, please try the below steps, I hope it should work...
1) Right click on the executable file, that is "Acrobat.exe", i.e., (Right Click > Properties)
2) Click on the Compatibility Tab
3) Use the drop down from 'Run this program in compatibility mode' menu and select XP.
4) Checked the box for Run as Administrator
5) Now, click apply and OK.
6) Finally, run the installer.
Please try these and let me know if it works... The above picture is just a example!!
What if I can't INSTALL it on W7?
Let me clarify.. I can't install it as part of CS2.. there is no executable that I can use to run in compatibility mode.
However, if I go to CD4 of CS2,make of copy of the acrobat install folder on my HD, and change the properties of the installer for compat with W7, it does intall ok, but is it no longer part of the CS2 suite of programs, and wants me to activiate it within 30 days.
Is there anyway I can reinstall is as part of CD2 and have it work in compatibility mode?
Well, you may not be able to run Acrobat separtely because it is part of a Suite.... I did not know that MS released a integrated version of Virtual PC for Windows 7....its really cool!!
I believe that makes more easier because they have worked on the USB support as well...Try that and let us know if you are able to run the program smoothly.. Best of luck!!
Hi - Don't know if this is still giving you problems, but... I'm running CS2 on Windows 7 64bit. The problem is in the destination folder that Adobe automatically selects.
Adobe doesn't recognize Program Files (x86) as a destination - all I did was enter C:\progra~2\Adobe\ in place of the C:\programs files (x86) etc. and it installed almost perfectly... only thing that doesn't seem to work and I haven't found a fix for (any help from anyone else would be GREATLY appreciated) is the PDF Printer and I can no longer view PDF files online (might be a separate issue). Sorry I can't remember what forum I discovered this on - if I come across it again, I'll post it here. Hope this helps.
