CD-ROM System Requirements

Heritage Books CD-ROMs contain the necessary programs to run the CD in a folder right on your purchased disk. If your computer does not have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed already, you will be able to install it from the CD in order to view the books.

Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free program, used universally to read PDF files. We currently include Adobe Acrobat Reader v.6 on our CD-ROMs (If you have an earlier CD from us, be aware that we have also used versions 3.1, 4.0, and 5.0). All of the CD-ROMs will work with the 6.0 Reader. (If you own a CD with version 3.1 you'll note that the Roman numerals are at the "back" of a book with "Next" and "Previous" buttons for navigation.

Please Note: If you have upgraded from Windows 98 to Windows XP you may find that CDs you purchased from us no longer work because of changes in Adobe Acrobat. We can provide a replacement CD for $5.00 (plus shipping & handling). Contact our customer service division for details, orders@HeritageBooks.com.
