For the record: "Acrobat Reader" is the name (assigned by Adobe)
for their program which displays PDF files. This name is intended
for reference in text, conversation, etc., as in "Open this file
using Acrobat Reader" or "Download Acrobat Reader from here".

When you install it, the name of the binary is "acroread" (at
least on Linux).

In a Windows-98 partition, however, I have found

  ./Program Files/Adobe/Acrobat 4.0/Reader/AcroRd32.exe

so it looks as though the binary may be called "AcroRd32" in Windows.
