As of June 25, 2008, the current version of the Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader is version 9.0.0.
NOTE: If you have version 8.1.2 with Security Update 1 of either Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader, you do not need to update to version 9.0.0. You can continue to use the 8.1.2 version.
If you would like to install the new Adobe Reader, please see our How To Install and Configure Adobe Reader v9 for Windows for steps on updating Adobe Reader to the current version.
If you would like to purchase a license for the "full" version of Adobe Acrobat 9, this is available to faculty, staff and students at the Penn State Computer Store at http://www.computerstore.psu.edu/. Adobe Acrobat is Departmental Site Licensed software.
From the Computer Store's home page, click Departmental Licenses then click Adobe License. You will see a Acrobat 9 Pro Win License ($56.00 SLWNSR046) and Acrobat 9 Pro Win DVD Media ($7.50 SMWNSR054). These are sold separately. Why? Often a Department will buy 1 copy of the media. Then Faculty or Staff purchase their individual license for $40. You can then sign out the departmental DVD for the install. But, if you want a DVD of your own, you would need to purchase both a copy of the media along with a paper license.
