If you are running Mac OS 9.x or later, you won't see those errors.

You can't - in fact, I verified this today (by accident).
Acrobat, like most/all other Adobe applications only run a single
copy of themselves and use a "semaphor" to do so. However, the
semaphor (at least for Acrobat) isn't version specific so running
Acro4 when Acro5 is already open, just switches it.
