To access this file, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer
If you are unsure about this, see the bottom of this page.

If you have Adobe Reader, one of the two methods decribed below should work.

Method 1
Just click on the link above.
This method may not work if certain security options are set.
Follow on-screen guidance or use method 2 instead.

Method 2
Right-click on the link above and click on 'Save Link As' or 'Save Target As'
This allows you to save the copy to your hard disk drive and then open it from there.
(Make sure that you know where you are saving it, so that you can find it later!)
When it has finished saving, go to the file on your hard drive and double-click it.

Do you have Adobe Reader?

Many pieces of software install Adobe Acrobat Reader so that you can read their manual from a disk (a paper copy often not being provided). Look in your Programs for a folder called Adobe and inside that folder look for a program called Adobe Reader.

(If you don't have Adobe reader installed, it is available here. It is, however, a large download. If you have a broadband connection, you will not have a problem. If you only have a 56K dial-up connection, you may be better to look for it on a magazine cover disk.)
