I have Adobe Acrobat installed for NT4.0 and am receiving errors when any user tries to access the app other than the administrative ID who installed the app.  I have granted full access to all associated files.  Anyone have a fix ?

I had (I believe) the same problem here, we had to update this files permissions with full access to everyone:
C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32X86\2\pdf*.*
This file is used by Acrobat Writer to create a PDF file.  By default users do not have write access to this file.

Dblanche,
  What are the errors ?
  Is this a networked install ?
  Bear in mind that if you install the application under the administrator ID, then user registry settings specific to Adobe will only be stored in the administrator's profile (NTUSER.DAT).
  You need to copy this part of the profile into the All Users profile in order for everyone to pick it up.
  Make it mandatory (rename it .MAN) so that they have no say in the matter !
