Acrobat/Reader 7.0.5

I’ve been asked “How do we chain (or configure) the Acrobat or Reader installer to patch from 7.0 to 7.0.1, 7.0.2, 7.0.3, and 7.0.5?”
And the answer depends on the final version required:
1) 7.0.5 rolls up all the previous updates, so there isn’t a need to chain if this is your final goal.
2) if you need 7.0 -> 7.0.3, there is a chaining document available.

    As one of Lori’s colleagues who also gets asked about this a lot, I’d also like folks to be aware of the following technical note:

    which has some complimentary information to the one that Lori mentions in her post.

    If you’re trying to bundle and install a single Reader 7.0.5, we offer that version from the main Reader download page.
    If you’re trying to bundle and install a single Acrobat 7.0.5, you’ll still need to use the 7.0 Installer and the 7.0.5 Patch. But an architectural change we’ve made to the 7.0.5 Patch (moving to a more industry-standard MSP format), plus the information in the above technical note that I site, should make this process *much* easier.

    Hope this helps. Let us know what you think.

    i m using Acrobat reader 9. and want to use 7.05 ver. at the same p.c. along with my previous uper ver.9. would it be possible to me. plz. suggest what do i do.

    [[we do not recommend running multiple versions of Acrobat and/or Adobe Reader on the same Windows computer as many of the resources are shared. You could try but you would have to specify which version to launch for each document –lori ]]
