I just installed Adobe Reader X on a computer with Windows XP SP3. It would not run until I put it in Windows 2000 compatibility mode and install the visual C++ 2008 run time package. Now I can open and print PDF's using the freestanding reader program but if I open a PDF while in my IE7 or the latest Firefox browser I get a screen that shows a progress bar that says "loading" but nothing is ever displayed. With a lot of web appliations, I am never offered to open or save the file so not being able to view the file means it can not be downloaded for later viewing either. I am dead in the water.
What should I do? This has been very frustrating and I am very close to uninstalling it and reloading 9.4 if I am able to do so.
