Hello Thomas and Karl,
Thank you for your help with the Acrobat problem. I am still unable to open
the protext-install-en.pdf that you sent me. The version of Acrobat I am using
is 7.0.7, but I did not see a date listed along with that version number.
I actually ended up just installing proTeXt on a different computer, where both
proTeXt and Acrobat worked smoothly with no errors, so I don't really have a
problem any more. I do appreciate your advice, though.
