When I try to open a pdf online Acrobat v6 tries to open it so I get an error message saying that v8 or v9 reader is required. I have v9 reader and it happily opens pdf files sent as attachments etc, as the default, but ie is defaulting to the old version of Adobe. How do I re-educate it to default to Reader v9?
Un-install Acrobat and re-install Adobe Reader.
Thanks - I was going to resort to that, but I still need Acrobat as I use it
create pdf's a lot. I don't want to pay for an upgrade to Acrobat as v6 does
all that I need.
My PC happily defaults to reader v9 to open pdf's on my computer, it is only
ie that insists on trying to use Acrobat v6
Any ideas? If I do as you suggest, but then reinstall Acrobat I assume I
will still have that problem?
You've stumbled upon one of the most common reasons that having both of those applications on the same machine isn't supprted or recommended.
