PDF Preview Handler Not Working in Outlook 2010

May 15, 2012 8:03 AM

I have Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit and Outlook 2010.


Everything was working fine, until a few months ago when the PDF Preview Handler stopped working. I got the typical message that others were having with the issue with Adobe Reader 9. I have Adobe Acrobat X Pro and have also used Adobe Reader X. I have tried the little registry fix app that is supposed to fix this issue, but it states that my registry is already correct. Has anyone found a resolution for this issue with Acrobat X and Outlook 2010? As a workaround I am using the Foxit PDF Preview Handler, but I have to reinstall it everytime Adobe Reader or Acrobat is udpated as for some reason Outlook then reverts back to the PDF Preview Handler, which is not working.

    Is Outlook a 64-bit process? If so, then be sure you have updated Acrobat. Only the latest version or so work properly with the 64-bit version of OFFICE.
