We have Illustrator CS3 for Windows. We did not purchase the the entire suite just INDD, PHOTO, ILLSTR and ACROBAT. I tried to access the symbol files that are free with Illustrator. When I open say the MAP file, the pages are all blank. I checked the others and they are all blank pages. I recently viewed them at a seminar and they were available. The path is ZZ:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CS3\Presents\Symbols\.....
Can anyone tell me why the software would have been sent with blank pages? Is there a setting I am not seeing?

Did you access the Symbol files from Window>Symbol Libraries>(list). When you open one of the files directly, you need to look at the Symbol panel (Window>Symbol) for that file. All the Symbols for that file are located there. The file is just a way of making a library available.
