Downloaded latest Reader X and am not able to open word documents sent as e-mail attachments. The blue word W file icon is replaced with a red A adobe file icon. When trying to open file error message says "Adobe Reader cannot open the following file. Because it is either not supported file type or because the file has been damaged( for example file it was sent as an e-mail attachment and wasn't correctly coded"
I have tried moving file to desk top but in the file drop down menu the only option is " attachment** "
Try adjusting your file associations to reassociate Word docs to Word.
In Windows XP highlight a Word document, right-click, choose open with>Choose program. Select MS Word and check the box that says Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.
I have spent an embarrassing amount of time and money trying to get Reader X to download and work properly. Thank you so much for your input. I thought I was going to have a heart attack getting files to open.
Glad that worked.
I've seen this many times with different programs over the years. Whether it's the applications installer or the OS that is at fault is beyond me. Normally it only happens on Windows machines if that's any clue...
