Downloading Adobe Acrobat Reader Software

The free Adobe Acrobat Reader will allow you to view all *.PDF files. The Acrobat Reader automatically installs a plug-in that allows it to work with Netscape Navigator 2.0 or greater and with Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 or greater.

After clicking on the Acrobat logo below, follow Adobe's download instructions. The reader is a 3.9M self-extracting file (*.exe) and will take approximately 15-20 minutes to download. If the download is interrupted prior to finishing (a times it will appear to download within seconds), please try again.

Once the Reader is downloaded on your hard drive:

  • Quit your Web browser
  • Double-click the file (ar32e30.exe)
  • Follow the installation instructions on the screen.
If there is a failure at any point during the installation of the Reader, the installer performs a complete uninstall. For this reason, it is important not to close the installer application by clicking on its close box in the upper right corner of the background window after clicking the "Thank You" dialog box that appears at the end of the installation. If you wait for a second or two, the installer will automatically close the background windows after the installation is complete.
