Needing to run Reader version 5 (Windows 95) to prepare for an online exam that utilizes this version for the 'open book' reference materials.
Any suggestions on how to do this?
There's no reason to use that ancient version. If a PDF file could be opened in Reader 5 it can be opened in Reader DC.
The reason that I need to run that very old version is: I am taking a difficult & timed test for my job. The test is "open book" in the sense that I am allowed to use Acrobat reader version 5.0 to access a couple thousand pages of US legal code (35 USC and 37 CFR). The test software ONLY uses version 5.0. I am very capable and efficient using modern acrobat reader to search the material but much less efficient with the old, out-dated, clunky version 5 - and ran out of time on my test. I want to practice with the appropriate software before I try to take the exam a second time.
I don't really understand, but OK... Any way, this version is not available on Adobe's FTP site. The earliest one I can find there is 6.0, so you're out of luck, either way.
Thank you Amal.
I have the current version of Acrobat reader. I need to run the ~20 year old version five.
Even assuming you could get it, would you really expect it to still run in Windows 10?
Please ask the exam firm how to proceed. You won't be the first to ask.
