I would like to install a pdf viewer on my Apache. I tried the download from Adobe but it cannot run. I think the problem is the version. The one on the Adobe site is for win mobile 2003.

Anyoen know where I can download a suitable pdf viewer for the Apache?

Even though it says "Windows Mobile 2003", the Adobe Reader works flawlessly on my Apache. Are you running the install program on your PC? It's not supposed to run directly on your Pocket PC.

I saved the download file on my pda and it now says that it cannot install the software.
It successfully instals if I run the install from the pc and than I can see it on the PDA as a program. If I try to than open a pdf file it says Cannot open file".

What version of Adobe are you using? Can you perhaps send me a lik to the file you downloaded for your Apache?

Many thanks for your response.

Not all pdf files are compatible. Also, when you install Adobe Reader it copies a readme.pdf file. ave you tried opening this one? it works for sure.

You could also try running Adobe Reader then open the pdf file from there. I run it on a Harrier and have had to do the same. As opposed to just clicking on the pdf file from the file explorer that is.
