Reader views EPS?

Feb 23, 2011 6:05 AM

Hello. I understand Reader is supposed to be able to view EPS files.  For some time I have noted that Reader has not been able to view the EPS documents that I have created using CorelDraw X4. They open fine in Illustrator 10, re-open fine in CorelDraw and open in Acrobat. But when I use Reader (multiple updates since I first noticed it) they wont open and get the below notice. Dont have any other known issues with Reader.


"Adobe Reader could not open xxxx.eps because it is either not a supported file type or the file has been damaged (for example it was sent as email attachment and not propertly decoded)"


Reader 9.4.2

Windows XPPro SP3 (latest)


From CorelDraw X4:

EPS exported Postscript 1 or 2

Occurs with or without ICC

Occurs RGB & CMYK


Thanks for any guidance

    Where did you read this? Adobe Reader can't display EPS files.
