I often see threads on Pocket PC forums where users report issues installing Adobe Reader to a WM5.0 or WM6.x Pocket PC. Because of these difficulties, there is a misperception that Adobe Reader for Pocket PCs is not compatible with these devices. But I installed Adobe Reader to both my WM5.0 and WM6.x devices and the software works fine. I encountered a problem when I installed the software to my first WM5.0 device, but the problem appeared to be with the installation wizard and not with the Adobe Reader application.
Problems installing the application? Just use the CAB file!
Download Adobe Reader for Pocket PC Version 2.0. (I uploaded the cab file to my OneDrive space since it is no longer available on Adobe’s website). Download the file to your computer, then select it and let the installation wizard prompt you through the reset of the installation.
