Cannot open pdf-file with Adobe Reader

Oct 17, 2012 2:35 PM

Downloaded Adobe Reader XI. When I go to the document and want to open a pdf-file with Adobe Reader, it won't open, but just flashes on my screen. It says to open the document with Adobe Reader and Acrobat Manager Helper, and I cannot change that. When I go to Adobe Reader and select the file I want to open with Adobe Reader it works. In my genealogy-programm I have also the possibility to open pdf-files, but that also doesn't work eighter. Nothing happens here.

 

I uninstalled Adobe Reader and also ran CCleaner, but nothing helps. Can someone please help me.

 

System: Windows 7 Professional; Intel Core i3, 64bit.

    Are these local or online PDF files?

     

    If local, does the same thing happen if you open Adobe Reader first, then open the file from there?

    Does the pdf file show Adobe Reader's icon? right click on a pdf file, what's the first option?

     

    Try this: Launch Reader, Go to Edit -> preferences, Click on general. You'll see a button called "Select Default PDF Handler" click on it. In the window that appears, select Adobe Reader XI and click Apply.Everything should work fine now.
