PDF's not loading in browser - Internet Explorer 9, Adobe Reader X, Win 7 x64

Sep 21, 2011 2:55 PM

I have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed and have a site that uses forms that need to be filled and submitted.  The problem is that when I open the form, they are opening in a seperate Window.


I've uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Reader

I've done 'detect' and repair several times.

I have checked and unchecked "Display PDF in browser" under EDIT -> PREFERENCES -> Internet


What I CAN tell is that when I go into Internet Explorer and look at the addons I do NOT see any of the acrobat add-ons that I see on my other computers (that work).


I've looked in the program files/common files/adobe/acrobat/active x folder and all the files are there but I don't see a way to make Internet Explorer force loading those or getting them in there manually.


Any help would be appreciated, I'm at my wits end!

    Hey Prusierra


    What version of Adobe Reader X are you using? I know I have had all sorts of issues with 10.0.1 and updating to 10.1.0 seems to be a much more stable option.


    I also saw this problem you are having and hitting F5 to refresh the page seemed to magically cause the document to display (not a resolution but something to try)

    When you say that they are opening in a separate window, do you mean that IE is opening them in a separate window or do you mean that Adobe Reader is being launched to display the PDF?

    Is your IE 64 bit or 32 bit? The Reader add-in works only on the deafult 32 bit IE on 64 bit Windows.
