I think shared reviews got built in 9 (certainly the ability to roundtrip reviews in FM came in with FM9); I've used them with PDFs in network folders internally - I've never used it with acrobat.com (which I guess is the "new" way to do shared reviews with people all over the place)

If Acrobat 8 requires a Server application, then the wizard should specify that. The error message should state something useful like, "Missing Server App <Name of Server App>" RJ - I took your suggestions and it still doesn't work. I moved the PDF to a local drive, set the file to be shared by everyone, gave everyone permissions to it, and I still get the same error message: The file destination provided is not valid.

What version of Acrobat are you using? The last time I looked at shared (server-based) reviews, it required a special Acrobat server application (I think this was Acrobat 7; maybe 8). With Acro 9, that no longer seems to be necessary, but I'm OK with emailing comment-enabled PDFs to my few reviewers (I don't really need them to see each others' comments). In Acro 9, there's supposed to be a wizard to help you set this up. Knowing Adobe, the problem may be that they're not clear in explaining/describing what you need to do. But take a look at this: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Acrobat/9.0/Standard/WS53DFBF0D-427E-46d1-829C-BBAED285F67D.w.html And the topics that follow, like this: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/Acrobat/9.0/Standard/WSB7237F9D-E90A-4c6b-8C0D-58C7B2063B1D.w.html It sure sounds like all you need is a network folder. But it's not clear if the PDF you want to share should be in that network folder as you step through the process or not. Of course, if you're using an older version of Acrobat... Richard G.
