HI! Welcome to the forum.
We can not tell for sure weather Adobe Reader 8.2.4 would work with Acrobat 8.0 or not because we have never tested it with Acrobat versions ourselves.
Also you can always be brave and try it with Reader 8.0 first and if that works you can slowly upgrade to newer versions I guess.
Sorry that was not that helpful
Also if you do try this and works please post it back on this forum so in the future someone else gets helped. Thanks. Have a nice day.
