You should be able to find the path to the current Acrobat installation
using the Registry on Windows.  There may be something stored in the
registry to indicate the version.  Not sure about the Mac, there may be a
way with AppleScript and the creator code (anyone?).  If you have the path
to the application you can use the getResource function on the Mac to find
out the version number.
