In theory, there should be no reason why Acrobat 5 (hopefully updated to Acrobat 5.0.5 - get the update on Adobe's web site at <http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=1&platform=W indows>) should not work directly with Acrobat 5 unless you are using the "save as PDF" feature.
I know of no Acrobat error messages that have numbers such as "122" -- anything else in the error message? Any other software that you are using in conjunction with both FrameMaker and Acrobat (plug-ins, etc.)? Did you try simply rebooting your system and running Acrobat on that document again? - Dov > -----Original Message----- > From: jopakent at comcast.net > Sent: Tuesday, December 05, 2006 2:00 PM > To: Framers > Subject: Recommended version of Acrobat for FM 7.1 > > I've been getting away with using Acrobat 5.0 with FrameMaker > 7.1 (Windows XP Pro) for some time now, but it looks like my > luck has finally run out. > > I installed Acrobat 5.0 and FrameMaker 7.1 on a new computer > (Windows XP Media Edition) and all appeared to be working > fine until I opened the first PDF distilled on this new machine. > > It's a 200 page document and the 3rd page does not display > properly (something about error 122).
