Adobe Reader is a 32-bit application, and so is the browser plugin; it will not work on a 64-bit browser, instead it will open in the standalone Reader application. So you can only view PDF documents inline in the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer.
However, you also mentioned Firefox; you cannot view the PDF docs inline in the 32-bit Firefox?
Thanks for your reply Pat !!!!!
On 64 bit machine, IE has both 32 & 64 bit versions and I think the default one is 32 bit version. so what do you mean by "So you can only view PDF documents inline in the 32-bit version of Internet Explorer." ?
My target here is to open the pdf reports inline in the IE so I would like to know if there is any way I could use 32 bit IE on 64 bit machine to view pdf's inline in the IE.
BTW I already pointed IE to 32 bit and 64 bit iexplorer.exe (\program files(x86)\... & program files\...) by changing exe location in properties->TargetName but I did not get any luck...
Also Please do let me know if there is any way in IE9 to restrict the pop up that downloads the pdf.
