    You need Adobe Reader or if you have it, upgrade it. This reads PDF files.:)

    Flash player is a different thing and does not read PDF files.
    I use PDFExchange on one machine and Foxit Reader on another.

    Flash has nothing to do with PDFs. Adobe is simply a software company that makes several different applications.

    You could download PDFlite. Very small and works well. Most of all it is FREE!!
