Topic: Acrobat.tlb reference always 'Missing' in VBA

There seems to be a problem with the way acrobat.tlb type library is set in the registry. I have the full version of acrobat 4.05 installed on my machine and my users' machines. On their machines, the Acrobat 4.0 reference is always "missing" under References in the VBA editor in Word97, even after I've set it using browse. In the registry, under
Acrobat is registered as Version 1.0 "Acrobat", while in VBA it's looking for "Adobe Acrobat 4.0 Type Library". On my machine I don't have this problem, as it's registered as version 1.1 "Adobe Acrobat 4.0 Type Library".
So my program keeps breaking on my users' machines. I am using Version 4.5 install CD, with files dated 11/29/99 7:09 AM. I guess at some point I had a different version which installed version 1.1. I've downloaded the Update 2 file from Adobe's site, but it's still stuck at version 1.0.

What is going on here, and can I get the correct version somehow?

I need a version that installs the type lib version correctly (we all are using acrobat.tlb dated 2/10/99).
