Adobe Reader Version 2015.016.20039 Note: Other Software is offered in the download.

System requirements: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Windows OS

  • 1.5GHz or faster processor
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 (32 bit and 64 bit), 2012 (64 bit), or 2012 R2 (64 bit); Windows 7 (32 bit and 64 bit); Windows 8 (32 bit and 64 bit); Windows 10
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 380MB of available hard-disk space
  • 1024x768 screen resolution
  • Internet Explorer 8, 9, or 10, 11; Firefox Extended Support Release

Looks like WinXP and Vista are not supported any longer for Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.

I don't know what external program to recommend for viewing PDF files; I use the PDF viewer that is built into Firefox, which works fine for me.

Edit: had to add not - sorry about that - a "senior moment" and not proof reading carefully enough to get my thoughts across

Hi, have a look at this - View PDF files in Firefox.

There are a couple of PDF reader plugins suggested near the bottom of the article, if you don't want to use the Firefox viewer.
