I have new sony vaio and whenever i click on a 'pdf file the browser says "the adobe acrobat/reader that is running can not be used to view pdf files in a web browser. adobe acrobat/reader version 8 or 9 is required"
I do have ver 9 installed. This forum has this msg in a similar post and the advice was to run Help/repair but this has not fixed it. Have restarted the pc. PC is running Vista Home. Maybe its a setting in IE7 which i am using?
Please check the following setting for me:
1. Open Reader
2. Click Edit > Preferences
3. Click Internet on the left menu
4. Verify that "Display PDF in browser" is checked
Let's hope it's only that but if not, we'll go forward from here.
thanks very much for your suggestion. I checked that option and it was already set. Hopefully there is something else you could suggest?
I followed a suggestion on another thread and it opens pdfs in Adobe Reader 9:
1) Go to Edit, Preferences, Internet and untick all the web browser options
2) Go to Document, Accessibility Setup Assistant and tabbed through to the last page. Ensure the last box is unticked.
