Made the mistake of listening to an instructor at an Alamode seminar and upgraded to XP. However, he failed to mention that XP kills the driver for Adobe, anything less than 5.0

Downloaded a driver from Adobe, reloaded softawre 3 times, won't work. Now the "free" Seminar is costing us $245.00 for 5.0

So, beware if upgrading to XP.

Don,

I run XP with Adobe 4.0 Distiller/Writer on an old Pentium I and have no problems. But then I use Toolbox not the old Greek Goddess. :lol:

So beware using Medusa???????

I was using Adobe Version 4.05 with XP and did not have any trouble. Switched to Version 5.05 because it will convert pdf to tif files and I use that for importing documents into appraisals as exhibits.

I am using Toolbox 9.83

:evil:

Installed Adobe 5.0 and works OK. Like 4.0 better. Now, I can get on line, download maps from alamode, BUT....now I cannot get into Netscape to send e-mail. Says I don't have a DNS entry. had one before, still looking for what happened to it. Any ideas?

Don, I read the Xp warning about having to reinstall Adobe 4.05 after XP, I guess it doesn't carry over..worked OK, but I lost the Distiller because I don't have a Postscript printer driver, it told me. Don't use the Distiller since I got the cable modem anyway. Sure don't miss rebooting 6 times a day like WIN 98.
