Download Rosebud  Download Rosebud by clicking on this link

Click here or on the image above to download and install Rosebud*. The Rosebud* installer will install the Rosebud client plug-in to Acrobat 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 on Win and Mac depending on what you have installed. It installs to the highest version unless you specify otherwise.

The Rosebud* download should take less than 2 minutes on broadband. Of course, if you need Java installed that requires its own download time.


If you need Acrobat, click here to get the 30 day tryout version of Acrobat X Pro.


You require Java JRE 1.4.2 or greater to install and run Rosebud* and the Rosebud* installer will automatically try to install Java if you need it.

For Mac users, check to see if you need Apple's Java update for Panther. You may also wish to check out further Mac specific install instructions here.

System Requirements

Rosebud* supports Acrobat 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 standard or Pro, for all Windows platforms from Windows 2000 up to and including Windows 7 and for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) up to and including 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

Both Acrobat and Java must be installed before you download Rosebud*.

Running behind a firewall?

If you are behind a firewall you will need to insure that your proxy server and port are already set up on your browser to download Rosebud*. Check with your system administrator if you need help setting up the proxy server.

Post install

After Rosebud* downloads, the Rosebud* 'Install Wizard' will walk you through the install process and connect you to Rosebud's* public server; select any Rosebud* session that does not require a password (no lock icon) and you will be entered into that session.

Windows 7 users

If you are installing Rosebud* on Windows 7 you will require administrator privileges. The Rosebud* installer (installer.jnlp) may run and still fail with a dialog stating that you do not have sufficient privileges to run it. Once the installer has then terminated you will be left with either a "Rosebud Installer" installation file on your desktop or in your Programs folder. Right click on this installer and click "Run as administrator" and you should then be able to install.
