I recently installed Adobe Reader 8.1.2 onto my Windows XP system. I have two user accounts, one has admin privileges and the other does not. In the admin account everything works OK. In the non-admin account when I double click a PDF file in windows explorer, Adobe Reader comes up then displays a pop up saying “There was an error opening this document. This file cannot be found”. However, if I open Adobe Reader from the desktop icon then use File->Open, the file opens correctly.
How can I get double-click to open the file?
When I double click on the file in Internet Explorer, it first brings up Adobe Reader, and the reader the displays file not found dialog. Doesn't this imply that the operating system already knows that .PDF files should be opened by Adobe.
