@LukasAppleFan: Your recent upload was giving this error: "! Unexpected end of archive" and cannot be extracted from the zip file.

But I see it was supposed to be for English, French and German language installs (EFD in the file name = English, Français, Deutsch). This CD had already been added as a separate install-able item, on the "Adobe Publishing Collection" page (see link above in description area). The EFD upload on this page has be removed as a double-up - so no need to re-do this item.

phew! after trying 20+ serials I eventually found one that worked! AEW400R3900106-762-184 If MG don't allow serials to be published, please delete this message.

I have a serial for version 4.05. Forgot to provide it with my original upload (maybe it was on purpose...I can't recall). Anyway, I think it would be better if you continue trying to find one yourself. Look for one starting with KMW

Can I be cheeky and ask for a serial that should work? Maybe it's because I'm trying to install on OS 10.4.11 QS under OS9.2 emulation?? So far I've tried 11 serials to no avail, many start with AEW400R70000... and US locale, any clues??

Thank you, mrdav. This is my all-time favorite version of Acrobat before the bloat. It never nags about opening PDFs made by newer versions of Acrobat, and it still manages to open most. Its Distiller will also embed Type 1 subsets without them needing to be installed in the system Fonts folder. Very nice.

Don't worry, MTT, I always upload all my files to the internal server (eventually) provided they are under 400 MB. This one is in the "To Upload" folder on my Desktop awaiting my attention.

Would you mind archiving this one here too, mrdav? In case mega goes the way of the rest, in the not too distant future (if the CD image is less than 400 MBs compressed of course)...
