          Welcome to our community, Vinesh

          Firstly, I'm thinking you have wandered into the wrong community. You are asking a question about Acrobat and this community is focused on Adobe Captivate. If you want to ask further questions about Acrobat, you should consider asking in the Acrobat community. You may do so by clicking the link below:

          Now for the gist of what you asked. There is a huge difference between Acrobat Reader and Acrobat. One uses Acrobat as the application used to create content that is later viewed by someone with the basic Acrobat reader. The reader is a free download for all. You have to purchase Acrobat in order to create content that you produce for the reader to present.

          Hopefully that makes a bit of sense. If not, try posting the same question over in the Acrobat forums and see what someone replies with.

          Cheers... Rick
