✔ Best Answer
Acrobat 5 is very old and I doubt that there is anything you can do to make it compatible with Windows 7. This update is required to make it compatible with XP:

Probably the only way is to run it in XP compatibility mode, if available for your edition of Windows 7, or under a virtual machine such as VirtualPC or VirtualBox, You will need to have a legal copy of XP for the latter options.

Thanks, LMiller7. My copy worked perfectly with Windows XP. I guess I'll just have to get a more recent version.
