(ONLY) for “WINDOWS “10” running Adobe DC XI. [This is not a disc fault]
If you have purchased for use on the new windows 10 operating system, and any features do not seem to work correctly, be sure you have the latest Adobe Pdf Reader update / install DC Adobe XI. Insert the disc, wait for the intro page to appear, and try the ‘finger pointer’ operation first. All the files can be read on 10, but for best display require the “Adobe Reader Preferences” to be set. Adobe is the premier Pdf reader and you should use this in preference to other readers.
Windows 10 is easily corrected. As the ‘pre-loaded’ Adobe DC XI is installed on Windows 10, you will need to set your “Edit” – “Preferences” as these are not carried forward from your previous version of Adobe Reader.
Go to, https://get.adobe.com/reader/otherversions/ otherversions / download (sample page shown) below to update your system. Choose DC XI. Don’t worry if you’re not sure, you will get a message saying your “system is already up to date”. The disc will work on any version of 9+ Adobe.
