This error message occasionally occurs with Acrobat 5 on XP 2. However the same files can be opened with Acrobat 6.0.4 on Win98(se2).
"There was an error opening this document. the file is damanged and could not be repaired."
I'd like ot upgrade 5 on my XP system, but have read many posts complaining about the same error with newer versions.
Is there a version that never produces this error on files that aren't actually damaged? And has anyone figured out what produces this error? (The posts I've seen suggest solutions that don't seem to work.)
Acrobat has incorporated many new features to PDF which are not compatible with older versions. better try the latest version.
I've read posts about this problem happening on all versions, and wanted to see if it was least likely to happen in one version.
I just need the basic function - the ability to read a pdf file.
Of course, it seems to be a problem only for some, and there's no way of knowing the extent, so I will try an upgrade or two.
