Macintosh

Once you've downloaded either ardr301.sit.hqx or ardr301.bin your Web browser may automatically decompress the file and create the file named "Install Acrobat Reader 4.0". You can try to locate this file by clicking on the Edit menu and choosing FIND. Type in "Acrobat Reader" and click "Search". You can run the file by double-clicking it once it is found.

If your Web browser is not set up to automatically decompress files, then you may have to do it manually. Try locating the file ardr301.sit.hqx or ardr301.bin and double click on it. If you get the error message "The file could not be opened because the application that created it could not be found" then you will have to download software to enable you to decompress these files. The most common and easy to use program for this is Stuffit Expander by Aladdin Software. You can download it from their Web site. Once Stuffit Expander is installed, you will be able to decompress and install the Acrobat Reader.
