can't file exe file- install Adobe acrobat
I purchased Acrobat 8 and try to install to Vista. I had trouble. First of
all I could not find the file that I downloaded. I try several places to save
but never found file. I see some information that Vista have problem so I
went XP PC and downloaded. All OK and put it in CD. Then I try to install but
I can not see the file in CD by Vista. Maybe quite simple matter but still I
can't see file, how....
File name is APRO8_Win_WEB_WWEFG.exe Why I can not see by Vista? Is there
any option aoound to see?

Hi, tf.

Vista has some new defaults, some not as intuitive as Microsoft thought they
would be.

One way to find ANY file ANYWHERE on your HD is by using the Command Prompt
(Run Cmd.exe). In the Command Prompt window, use the old MS-DOS command
"dir", from days when folders were directories. Use this command with
wildcards and switches to find your file.

You might start with:
dir c:\APRO8*.* /s /a

The "c:\" starts in the Root of Drive C:. the /s switch searches the entire
directory tree, including subdirectories. And the /a switch - probably not
needed in this case, but it doesn't hurt - shows ALL files, even those with
Hidden or attributes set.

It may take a while if you have a large drive with a lot of files, but if a
filename starting with APRO8 is anywhere on C:, that should list it. Then
you can examine the whole pathname to see where Vista defaults to storing
your downloaded files - and you should be able to find them more easily next
time.
