No Acrobat Reader should do it. You can also try FoxItReader or PDF Maker or anything like that as well.

That is the latest version. It should work as stated above. It could be a corrupted install. Dont know. Try using FoxIt and see if that helps.

Dont worry about that just help me with my DVD issue.
Nah jokes! lol
But yea can you be more detailed...
Does it give an error? Or does it just attempt to open it and then close? Does it crash? Can Acrobat open by itself?
