Adobe Acrobat Pro is now available to all faculty and staff using either Mac or PC.
Go to Start, then Run, and enter \\itss-aspen\distribution\PC\Adobe Acrobat Pro XI into the field, then press enter.
Just double-click on setup and let it run. If you have Outlook open it may require you quit it.
Adobe Acrobat Pro is now installed on your computer. You should be able to find by opening the Start menu under All Programs.
With Finder open, go to Go in the menu bar, and select 'Connect to server'. In the window that comes up, type smb://itss-aspen/Distribution/Mac/Adobe Acrobat Pro and hit enter.
Inside the Adobe Acrobat Pro folder, there should be a License Key.txt and a .dmg file. Drag both to your desktop, and open the License Key.txt file. You'll need to enter this during the installation process.
Double click the .dmg file, and it should run through a verification process, then create a 'disk image'. It shows up as a disk icon on your desktop.
Double click that, and it should open up a new window with Adobe Acrobat Pro and a disk icon, amongst a few text files. Double click the disk icon, and it'll open yet another window. Double click the Adobe Acrobat Pro installer.pkg file.
It will open an installer.
Enter your password when prompted. Select your Macintosh HD as the location to install, then click continue. When prompted for the serial number, enter the number located in the "License Key.txt" that was previously opened. When installation is complete you will be presented with a green check mark and the option to close.
Adobe Acrobat Pro is now installed on your computer. You can find it in your Applications folder.
- We’ve found that occasionally, the first time Acrobat Pro is run on a newly imaged system, it may generate a licensing error. Adobe has acknowledged this, and currently there is only one workaround. Run Acrobat as an administrator (shift – right click – run as administrator) one time. Close the program, and it will run normally without the run as administrator option.
