Adobe Acrobat is a family of computer programs developed by Adobe Systems, designed to view, create, manipulate and manage files in Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF). Some software in the family, particularly the creating software, is commercial, and some is freeware. Adobe Reader (formerly Acrobat Reader) is available as a no-charge download from Adobe's web site, and allows the viewing and printing of PDF files. Acrobat and Reader are widely used as a way to present information with a fixed layout similar to a paper publication.

Mediafire mirror (archive contains the full Acrobat 5.0 and Acrobat Reader 5.0 installers, only)
Compatibility
Architecture: PPC PPC (Carbonized)

Mac OS 8.6 and above (to Mac OS X 10.4.11) PPC

 • The file "Acrobat 5.0 Installer, installs as a Classic PPC app only.
 • The included 5.0.5 updater "Acrobat 5.0 Patch EFG", carbonizes Acrobat to become both PPC Mac OS X & Classic native, allowing this version of Acrobat to run native on PPC Mac OS's up to OS X 10.4.11.
 • The additional "Acro_5010_Update" is a security patch that fixes "buffer overflow vulnerabilities" in Acrobat updating Acrobat 5.0.5 to version 5.0.10

[Note]: There is however no included Carbon updater for Distiller, and although it is updated to version 5.0.5 by the included "Acrobat 5.0 Patch EFG", it remains a Classic PPC app only.

Yes, more complete, there is some bonus included. For example, u have a PDFMaker Macros for Office. There is also additional folders & SDK too... Well, I let u discover what's inside this image. That one comes from remnants of my lost collection, u know, all is not lost, thank goodness ! Smile

[EDIT] The image is now uploaded. Smile I have modified the description for theses uploads. But of course, u should rearrange the page if u prefer to remove some items from the page. Wink

Hello MacTouch. Sounds good. Please add them all, big one included if you think they should be here. Individual language specific DL's are good. Tho' I'm intrigued to know what you mean by "more complete" Wink

Hi Mike,

I've found differents versions of the installer. All installers include English, French & German languages. And better than that, I've also a "big" Toast image of Acrobat 5 for those languages. It looks more complete than the one on this page... Should I upload all of them or just the image ? If so, what name do u want I give before ? Thanks in advance for answering. Wink

The Update downloads aren't working. They send me to a page not found page.

I've uploaded the 5.0.5 & 5.0.10 updates separately, as the MediaFire DL appears to contain the version 5.0 installers only. The original Archived (115.25 MB) "Temporarily unavailable due to high bandwidth costs" file listed above, contained the updaters. So these were different uploads.

I located these updaters via the Wayback Machine.

If the MediaFire copy vanishes in the foreseeable future, then I believe the internally uploaded archive can be recovered and made available elsewhere.

[Edit] With the new server changes, the internal archive is also now available Smile

What do you want Acrobat 3 or 5 for? Both are for a Classic Mac OS only

I've since had to revise my own opinion about version 5, as the included updater Carbonizes Acrobat to run native on both OS X & Classic PPC. No included updater for Distiler tho'. I've added this info to the Compatibility field above.

What do you want Acrobat 3 or 5 for? Both are for a Classic Mac OS only, and Stuffit Expander 10.x runs on OS X only. Ver 10 I'm guessing doesn't like such an old file type...

Acrobat 3 & 5 only run on Classic Mac OS's so if you want to run these on old OS's; Why aren't you trying to extract them on older Classic Mac OS's using compatible Stuffit extraction software. For example Stuffit Expander 5.5?

Hi, Even with my Google+ account, I don't have access to this page… :—(
I've also tried to get the Acrobat 3 CD, but once I have the 3 files as a single '.sit' Expender [10.0.2] says it would take over 4000 hours (!)… I've stopped the extraction when the '.img' file got to 5 Go…
So no vers.3 and no vers. 5 ?
[a bit desperate!]
Any other suggestions?
Thanks

I won't post a direct mirror link to this page because there's a limit to how much I can keep track of and maintain.

The best I can offer you is the poor man's alternative, PrintToPDF.

Does anyone have a version of this to share with a starving student?
