This machine comes bundled with "Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro": does this work on Mountain Lion?

Fujitsu are being VERY unclear on this.
Does anyone know please?


(Acrobat 9 Pro is a fairly old now, and Acrobat X Pro has already been out some time too. We will need 9 Pro to work in Mountain Lion that's JUST BEEN RELEASED! Otherwise if we have to purchase an entirely new upgrade to version Acrobat X Pro, this will cost at least £200!)

I don't use it much, but a quick check confirms it runs under Mountain Lion (10.8 build 12A269 on a 2.66 Core i5 27" iMac). (I opened and saved a PDF... not much, but enough to prove it's not a total dead end.)

Thanks for the reply. Well at least that's something.

If anyone else can confirm other functionalities (or lack thereof), then please chip-in here. Knowing Adobe, I have a feeling that something is bound not to work properly, thus forcing an EXPENSIVE upgrade!

And anyone wanting to buy this S1500M machine will need to know if they have to pay extra to upgrade the included version when using Mountain Lion, at great extra expense as well.

Copy of a comment I added earlier under my review:

When I reviewed the scanner it came with Adobe Acrobat Professional 8.1.5. This appears to work fine with Mountain Lion. Certainly the scanner scans documents as before and will OCR text. Completed scans can be edited within Acrobat. My impression of Mountain Lion is that it's an incremental update of OS X, not like a Windows upgrade, and I haven't experienced any software problems yet at all. All the more remarkable as Mountain Lion has only just gone live and I'd avoid early versions of a new Windows release.

Thank you for the link to the USA site. I was about to purchase one of these when I noticed it is £282 ($419) in the USA, but £452in the UK, I just can't stand being ripped off. Why on earth is Amazon selling it at such a high price in the UK. Makes no sense.

fujitsu have a page devoted to mountain lion issues. They clearly need to pull their fingers out - charge more for a product that in software terms is comparably defective. I want one but cannot see myself buying one if this is their level of support.
