So we're in the office working a bit later that usual and we're trying to install Adobe Distiller so that we can produce some PDF's from a program that doesn't export to any file format other than its own and we only have a Windows copy of. Insert the CD from Adobe. Up pops the infuriating 'AutoPlay.exe' window. There are a few buttons that seem to do something. There are two arranged horizontally on the top, and grab the eye, and are thus considered the important ones. These are labelled 'Install Acrobat' and 'Explore Acrobat'. Click 'Install' It appears to do nothing. Hmm. Click 'Explore Acrobat' button. It appears to do nothing. Hmmm. Remove CD, close everything down. Insert CD. Click 'Install' It appears to do nothing. Click 'Explore Acrobat' button. It appears to do nothing. Repeat. Twice. Finally I notice that clicking on the 'Explore' button changes the number of vertically aligned buttons. Hmm. Click on 'Install' Click on horizontally aligned 'Install Acrobat 6.0' Scream in anger, and head to $mail_client to rant about poor UI in software written by the same company that produces products for _designers_ Bah.
