Licensing question - Acrobat 4 & 6 on the same computer - Adobe Acrobat Windows

Hi, Some of our clients require pdfs created with version 4 while others need version 6. Those who still have acrobat 4 are unable to view pdf's that were created in 6 properly. We've tested acrobat 4 and 6 on the same computer and it works great for everyone. The problem is, we have version 6 licenses. Is it legal to have both installed, since we have the license for the newer of 2 versions? I've read the end user agreement and only saw something about upgrades.

    Default Licensing question - Acrobat 4 & 6 on the same computer

    Hi,

    Some of our clients require pdfs created with version 4 while others need version 6. Those who still have acrobat 4 are unable to view pdf's that were created in 6 properly. We've tested acrobat 4 and 6 on the same computer and it works great for everyone. The problem is, we have version 6 licenses. Is it legal to have both installed, since we have the license for the newer of 2 versions? I've read the end user agreement and only saw something about upgrades. Since version 4 licenses aren't being sold are we out of luck? Do we have to own 2 version 6 licenses to have 4 and 6 on the same computer? Or are we ok with 1 version 6 license?

    Thanks in advance...

    The EULA really doesn't cover this, so you'll either have to ask Adobe or just chance it.

    My gut says it's OK, though.

    This is the situation with 5.0 and 6.0, so I guess it's OK for 4.0 as well ...

    If you have a copy of 5.0 installed on one computer, you can legitimately install the SAME copy of 5.0 on another computer, as long as you have a copy of 6.0 that is NOT installed to cover it.

    I guess to have 4.0 and 6.0 on the same PC you would have to prove you had TWO 6.0 licences.
