    _player.Open Adobe Reader

      I am doing a simple _player.open ( or even an open ... with ...) in Director 11. It works fine with notepad (I used that as a test). But it does not work well with Adobe Reader 8 or Adobe Acrobat 8.

      I get a dialogue box that states the file can not be found. That comes up twice and then the file opens.

      Here is the code with the addresses hard coded.

      _player.open("E:\D_drive\Harris\117f\English\pdf\En117fop.pdf", "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\acrord32.exe")

      It does work fine in Director 10.

      Has anyone seen this glitch??

      Thanks for any help on this!!!
