go to top arrow Adding Adobe Reader and Power Point Viewers

The free version does not include the .PDF or .PPT viewers although Adobe Reader and PowerPoint documents should still open automatically if they are already installed on the users computer. If they still do not open automatically then you can select which program to use to open them via the top File menu button.

The following files should be included on your CD to ensure the correct viewer always opens Adobe .pdf drivers and PowerPoint viewer

If you include these on your CD the user will not need to have them installed on their computer so you will remove any version incompatibility problems.

To add a later version simply ensure that the Adobe Reader program and all its related files are placed in a subdirectory /adobread/Reader/AcroRd32.exe.

The Power Point viewer and all its related files need to be placed in a subdirectory /PPTVIEW/PPVIEW32.exe.

Purchasing the full copy of the elibrary will provide you with a CD packed with all the drivers and program examples. However, adding the drivers for the PDF or PPT version you are using is the best way to be sure you don't have compatibility problems.
