>How can I fix this?
It depends. What EXACTLY happens when you try to open PDF files you
have saved to your hard drive?
What happens if you start Adobe Reader and use File > Open?
For files saved on my hard drive, I just click on the file and it opens with no problems. When I open Adobe Reader first and then use file > open, it works just fine.
My only problem is opening new pdf files off the internet.
You do not tell us what the "problem" is; what happens if you try?
[Edit:] some (large) PDF files may take a very long time to be downloaded & opened, especially if the server is slow.
You should click "open with" and choose acrobat to open the file. It should open then. Hope it helps.
I have encountered similar problems on my terminal/Citrix servers. I am running Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise edition with Adobe reader 8 at the moment. I've had reader 9 installed and get the same results. I can open a pdf fine if I open Adobe reader first, however if I try to click a hyperlink it fails with an error saying "There was an error opening this document. The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect". I even have a case open with Microsoft and they are stumped.
If anyone has suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.
Other users have reported similar (and perhaps even related) problems.
I hope Adobe replicates this problem and is able to help us get back to the previous behavior in Reader 8. Meanwhile, the workaround seems to be either to SAVE AS the file and open it separately (in its own Reader window), or configure Reader to open files outside of the browser.
Hi sounds like my problem ! How do you configure Reader to open files outside of the browser? Thanks
Just figured this out - thanks anyway
