    Why am I unable to open this file with Adobe Reader?


      I am trying to open the following file,




      and an error message says:


      The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running cannot be used to

      view PDF files in a web browser. Adobe Acrobat/Reader version

      8 or 9 is neccesary.


      I am running Adobe Reader 9.3 on Windows XP/service pack 3 and

      what does Acrobat have to do with this, if I only want to view file?

          This is cbuzz1, with a possible answer to my own question. From some web research and a few phone calls it appears that Adobe Reader 9.3 does not support I.E.8... I uninstalled Adobe Reader 9.3 and installed Adobe Reader 8.2, and no problems whatsoever. It does bother me though that when you go to Adobe Downloads and select Windows XP-sp3 operating system, the first option is to download Adobe Reader 9.3. It doesn't ask which browser you are using...So basically I spent three hours finding out something that I couldn't learn from Adobe Tech Support...
