    My iBook, OS X, 700MHz, G3, has lost it's ability to open Acrobat. I get the following error message.
    Appl Launch Failure
    ..."Acrobat" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "/,Acrobat 5.0><Acrobat 5.0><CoolTypeCarbonLib><>"

    Acrobat 5.0.1 tries to launch in OS 9.2 but fails for a number of reasons.
    What can I do? I have tried moving & trashing visible copies of the TypeLibs mentioned, but that doesn't change things. Thanks!

    I'm getting this with Stuffit at the moment. I think it's due to overlapping file extent allocations. I'm going to back everything up and do a clean install to see if that sorts it.
