This one is quite old and it's better to upgrade to a newer release.

Nevertheless, I'm not able to display vglgrad-1.pdf in acroread 4.05.
I get the message:

      There was an error opening this document. The root object 
      is missing or invalid.

When I try gv I get the following message from ghostscript:

     Error: /syntaxerror in readxref

vglgrad-1.pdf was produced by ghostscript 5.50.  I recommend to
upgrade to version 6.01 or 7.00, which produces much better pdf.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
