Topic: Acrobat Reader on CD for Mac and PC ' font capture error
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 95177

Hello everybody,

I have a small problem with to burn an appropriate MAC and PC usable CD with Acrobat Reader on the disk.

I created a presentation with Acrobat 6.0, some hundred linked pages. The best to view would be actually the Reader 6.0, but I thought I cannot force the people to install it.
So I found a way to burn the reader on the CD.
There is a nice explanation for Acrobat 4.0 on the net:

I just copy the whole Reader folder from my hard disk (Windows XP) to the CD and create an autorun to open Acrord32.exe and the Welcome.pdf.

I want to to the same for Mac and burn a Hybrid ISO CD with MAC and PC partition. But when I burn the CD on the MAC the PC section gives me an error message:

Font Capture: AcroRd32.exe - Application Error
The instruction at "0x00000000" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The
memory could not be "read".

Then I tried to burn the same thing with CDEverywhere on my PC but now the MAC section doesn't work, because I cannot transfer the MAC folder properly to my PC.

Does anybody out there have a solution for this or is it just not advisable to put the reader on the CD.

thanks for any hint

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For people who don't spend their time looking at PDF files in text editors*, PDF security is a sometimes misunderstood beast.

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
