Do you have Adobe Acrobat installed on your system as well?
Also, could you right click on any PDF stored on your local system and try to open it with Internet Explorer (Make sure the checkbox for "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file". is the same behavior seen here as well.
Thanks for your answer.
When i open a pdf file on my computer with the internet explorer, the same error occurs.
I have installed:
- Adobe Flash Player 11 Plugin 64-it
- Adobe Reader X (10.1.1) -Deutsch (=german)
- Adobe Shockwave Player 11.6

Try the following:
1. Exit Reader (Make sure that Adobe Reader is not running)
2. Launch Task Manger and choose Processes
3. If AcroRd32.exe is running, select it and click on "End Process"
4. Launch Reader
5. Choose Edit > Preferences > Internet
6. Under "Display PDF in browser", what is the path for Reader process (it should be: c:\program files\Adobe\Reader 10.1\Reader\AcroRd32.exe)?
7. Try to disable and enable "Display PDF in browser" (uncheck Display PDF in browser", click on OK, open Preferences again, check Display PDF in browser, then click on OK button to close Preferences dialog"
8. Launch IE and open a PDF
9. If the problem does not go away, try disabling Reader Protected Mode (Open Preferences > Choose General > uncheck Enable Protected Mode at startup"
10. Launch IE and open a PDF
Thx a lot! Step 9) worked!
Interesting fact: I have installed Version 10.1.1 but the path in step 6) says: "C:Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe", but there is no option to change it.
6) Sorry, it was a typo on my end, it should be in Reader 10.0 and not Reader 10.1 (C:Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe is correct).
9) Now, if you enable protected mode again, does the error come back?
The error comes back
STEP 9 WORKED FOR ME TOO.... YEH....
Sideo21, you said "...C:Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe", but there is no option to change it."
I had tried the other steps but didn't work for me. However, here's what worked for me.
Like you, I also have Adobe X V10.1.2 (on Windows 7 64-bit), and the path is showing 10.0 and there is no option to change it. (I think this should be edit-able). My path in Adobe preferences was missing the \Reader directory, so I copied the AcroRd32.exe from the actual Reader\ directory and pasted it into the \Reader10.0 directory so that the path matches. Now, when I open a PDF doc from Chrome V16, the PDF document opens up fine and there are no error messages.
Thanks for the hint Sideo21.
