Well, you could start by giving us some minimum details about your setup (like platform, versions of operating system and Reader), and telling us what happens when you try to open a PDF from within Reader and by double clicking on its icon...
Finally, you say you downloaded some version of Reader but, did you install it?
I am using windows vista, I downloaded Adobe Reader 9. When I double click on a PDF document it gives me a pop up of;
Save and so forth, when I click on open nothing happens.
I have installed the same exact thing on my desk top and I have no problems opening PDF files, it is only on my lap top that I am having these problems. I do not know much about computers. If there is more info you need to know please advise.
I am using windows vista, I downloaded Adobe Reader 9.
Again, did you install it after you downloaded it?
Downloading will add an installer icon on your desktop. You need to double click that to install Reader. Did you do that?
Yes, I pop up came up bar came up that said click here to install. And I did.
And what happened? Any error messages? Can you opne Reader? What happens when you try?
It's tiring having to use a corkscrew to get the necessary information to try to guess what the problem is.
Hey Claudio, if it is such a pain in your backside to work with people on this forum why are you spending your time here? Take your attitude somewhere else!
And what is your involvement in the problem?
Claudio has been helping people in these forums for many years; who are you to critisize him? It is very difficult to provide help if people refuse to provide information.
Thanks, Pat, although I think it's wasting one's time answering that kind of message. The poster did not even notice that it wasn't just me asking unsuccessfully for details to understand the problem.
Here is my assessment, Claudio. I know you are revered among your peers and it's very obvious that you live on these forums. You have undoubtedly helped a lot of people and you will be rewarded in your afterlife for your endeavors here but here's a reality check for both you and Pat:
What lesson did D.Call learn from you? Likely the lesson was, don't post here or you'll be treated as an imbecile by some hotshot bitwhiz named Claudio Gonzalez.
Did you not see that D.Call said s/he was an inexperienced computer user… and was obviously asking for elementary level assistance? You were blinded by your belief that your knowledge and expertise is being wasted on anyone who isn’t forthcoming to your expectations. I merely pointed out that if you think it's such a waste of your time, why dwell? You should have left Graffiti to work with D.Call and headed off to another thread. Surely there were other posts requiring your extreme level of higher intelligence.
Think about this: You don't like it when someone talks down to you as I have here, now do you? No one does. Right now as you read this my guess is you are fuming and likely trying to think of a way to smite me. You can respond to this post in whatever tone or language you choose but I won't take offense. I’ll be the bigger man… I promise I won't reply so you can have the last word.
When you respond, see if you can take it up a notch and maybe even admit you made a mistake with your corkscrew remark. I don't think you would ever risk being so disrespectful to D.Call, and most certainly, not to me or anyone else if we were face-to-face. If you worked in my company, you would be fired for disrespecting my customers.
By the way, do you and Pat have spell check ability? If you do, you should use it.
No, you have said the last word. You are undoubtedly the bigger man.
