Yes, Adobe Acrobat. (Acrobat Professional or Acrobat Standard). Also

Does anyone know where previous versions of Acrobat can be purchased in the UK ?
If you can't run XPress you will NOT be able to make PDF files from
XPress documents, with or without Acrobat. Just to be clear, Acrobat
can't convert XPress documents without XPress.

hi aandi yes i do - windows 2000 service pack 4
