Topic: detecting version of Acrobat

Sorry if this is fairly simple, but I'm not a programmer and am trying to do some information gathering/research to see if it's possible to detect the version of Acrobat (Reader and Full versions) installed on a user's machine. I'm planning on putting together a CD with a bunch of PDFs and indexes (PDX) and I want to make sure at the outset that, if my user doesn't have the Full version, he has the right version of Acrobat Reader (with the swearch and accessibility features) that supports searching PDF collections. The CD would be delivered to folks using either Solaris or Windows 2k. If it is possible to detect the version of Reader, can anyone point me in the right direction for how to do so?
Thanks in advance for your time and help.
