I'm not sure why Adobe hasn't looked into this. One description elsewhere in the forum seems to suggest that if the computer has had older versions of the reader installed, it will work -- somehow the embedded file needs an older registry key. I have yet to try installing older versions of reader onto my machine. This machine has only had reader 10 installed on it.
I tried the recommendation that is given in another thread. Turn off running reader in protected mode. The first time I did it, it didn't work. The second time I unchecked the "use in protected mode" box, I closed and then reopened reader. Now I can open embedded pdfs in word.
Thanks for your reply. So what your saying is that there is no way of opening a
embedded PDF-document with Protection Mode on?
For me, for now, turning off protected mode (in Acrobat Reader) seems to be
the only way that
I can guarantee being able to read embedded PDFs. I'm not sure if Adobe
will come up with
some fix, but another thread wanted me to add registry keys, since I don't
have admin rights,
that's not possible. There were a bunch of keys listed so I thought it was
a bit of a shotgun
fix -- with no guaranteed outcome.
