cannot open - "RUNACRO.DLL

Attempting to install a downloaded zip copy of Stedman Medical Dictionary, I receive the following error =
"cannot open library file "RUNACRO.DLL"
Thinking it is an Adobe Acrobat file, I downloaded and installed Adobe Acrobat #6, but continue to get the above block. Cannot find this DLL file anywhere.
Is this a copywrite protected file ?

Just FYI, the Stedman's I know are copyrighted works that may employ that Acrobat encryption method. I have a few books like this, but not that DLL. Where can I look at this .ZIP file?

don't know how to insert a ZIP into this reply (if it is possible)

you must be right- that it is copywrite protected (but searching properties did not indicate so).
Downloaded it from Kaza.
Thanks anyway.
