> Cannot Upgrade 'Public Domain' Reader to Version 6.0.2 and 6.0.3.
What do you mean by "cannot" - what happens if you try?

trouble report of Tuesday 08/19/2008 from Katy, Texas.
I'm aware that Microsoft stopped supporting Windows Me in July 2007.
My intention was to Update my 'Freely Supported' copy of Adobe's
Acrobat Reader up to Version 6.0.6 to minimize User Warnings when

45K Bps) via my MSN 9.0 Internet Dial-Up subscription. After about
10 minutes of download, the process CRASHED with a 'Corrupted File'
Error Message. I've done similar size Security Downloads from
Microsoft for Windows Me and Internet Explorer 6.0 without failure.

the OS Drop-Down Box Did Not Include Windows 98 or Windows Me.
So, I concluded in my Brief Report that Adobe Reader for Windows Me
is No Longer Supported.
