The following error occurs during the installation of ArcGIS 9.0 Pre-Release or when starting the ArcReader 9.0 Pre-Release application:
"ArcReader timeout error"
ArcGIS 9.0 Pre-Release CDs created before Februrary 1, 2004, have an incorrect ArcReader timeout date.
Download the updated ArcReaderHost.exe file and copy it into the \ArcGIS\Bin folder before installing ArcGIS 9.0 Pre-Release. If ArcGIS 9.0 Pre-Release is already installed, replace the existing copy of the file.
The password needed to unzip this patch is "marvin".
The drive letter and path to the bin folder may be different if the default location was changed during the installation.
