Adobe Acrobat 11 will not open files in IE 10.0.06

Adobe Acrobat 11 will not open files in IE 10.0.06. Problem started about 2 months ago. It can open older files on computer but cannot open or downloadd any from internet. Using Office 2010. Already spent an hour with my computer tech support under warranty. Please help identify issue. Thanks

As a web designer - IMHO, Internet Exploder is absolute garbage disguised as software. This (and thousands of other threads in this and many other forums throughout the web) is just more proof of that. I've used Firefox since 2002 when it was still called Mozilla. It does about a million things IE can't and won't, and does them better, faster, and more sensibly.
Microsoft KNOWS that most corporate workstations have Windows and most I/T departments forbid installation of unapporved software, including browsers, so (by a very slim margin) IE is still the most used browser in the world, but... that doesn't by any means make it the best choice. Because they know so many people are literally FORCED to use it at work, they will not make it more functional than they absolutely have to, because they don't care if people like it or not, when they have no other choice.
On a home computer, it's different, and that's why Firefox is just a fraction of a percentage point behind IE in worldwide use, and thanks to iPhones, Safari is rapidly climbing the numbers too.
Rather than trying to work around something that even Microsoft won't bother to fix, abandon their junk and go with Firefox, Opera, Chrome or Safari. It won't be long till you're glad you did.

  • Adobe Acrobat will not open

    I installed CS6 a few weeks ago and it worked fine. All of a sudden I can't open the Adobe Acrobat program any longer. How do I fix this?

    Hi,
    Since you have tried with crofix update but the file does not open.
    You might need to try out solutions 2 or 3 for the same from the link mentioned below:
    Doesn't launch after 30 days | Installed as part of a CS6 suite
    Please let me know if that worked for you. If no, then do tell me if there is any specific error.
    Regards,

  • Acrobat will not open any documents, HELP! Thank you!

    Adobe Acrobat will not open any documents, it tells me it is a trial, I click on license product and get a thank you for your Adobe Cloud subscription... but then when I try to open a pdf I get the same message it just keeps looping from trial will run out in 7 days to trial will run out in 13 days and I can never open a pdf. I am going to try and uninstall and reinstall. For most of us, not being able to open a pdf is comparable to not being able to work. This is totally UNacceptable. Clients and bosses are counting on my being able to do my job, I can't say to them, "Oh well the dog "Adobe" ate my homework." PLEASE fix this Adobe! Thank you.
    Here is a screen shot of the messages...
    I  uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled from Adobe Application Manager, thought all was great when it asked for my user name and password, then when I clicked Launch... same issue. FRUSTRATING! Any one have a fix? I even created a pdf using InDesign, made sure I had View PDF after exporting checked and still got that awful Trial box. The pdf did show up in my documents, but I can not open it.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Thank you Manish-Sharma, I followed the instruction in the thread, and for the first time in a week I can actually open a PDF. I am not sure if this will be a permanant fix, we will see on the 30 day mark. I really appreciate that you read my question and gave me an answer that allowed me to open Acrobat. I also opened Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator and AfterEffects. They all opened with the exception of a small glitch when I opened Illustrator which was cleared up in moments. See screetshot.
    Thank you again! Much appreciated!

    I am using Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard version in Windows 8.1 and when I try to create a .pdf file, I receive the following error message "Acrobat could not open "file name.log" because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged.  To create a PDF document, go to the source application then print the document to .pdf"  I am going to the source application and printing the document to .pdf yet it's saving the file as a .log file.  After reinstalling the software, I initially didn't encounter this problem but on my second and third attempts to convert files to .pdf format, this error message reappeared.  How do I resolve this problem?

    I have a similar problem which i did not have before...and it exists only in some powerpoint files which i want to print as a pdf file...and i get the same message as above.
    the log says the bellow details...what's the problem and how can i resolve it? thanks.

    after reloading adobe creative suite cs3 on my mac 10.4.11 acrobat will not open any pdfs it previously opened. help!

    hello.   hey, thanks very much for writing back.  i got some good info with a search or two.  (info about what regedit is and what corresponds to it in OS X -- regedit allows you to edit "preference" keys for individual programs,  OSX's equivalent for these keys are the .plists in User & System: Preferences and Application Support)
    what i ended up doing was uninstalling Premiere Pro (not the suite, just PPro).   Then i deleted a few preference files:
    from User /Preferences/Adobe:
    com.adobe.AdobePremierePro.plist
    com.Adobe.Premiere Pro.5.0.plist
    and from System Preferences:
    the file:  Adobe Premiere Pro Prefs
    and..
    /.../Premiere Pro/5.0/...
    AMEPrefs.xml     (i noticed that there's also a preference file in Media Encoder's own folder so i didn't sweat this one)
    Debug Database.txt
    Placeholder Preset.epr
    PostEncodeCmds.pref
    PresetCache.xml
    Trace Database.txt
    NOTE:
    of course i don't know if deleting any files beyond the 2 .plist files in User Prefs was necessary, but...  it seems to have worked.
    I then reinstalled Premiere Pro CS5, and fired up an old project and i've got playback of HD and DV files, and snappy editing and rendering,  so hopefully i'm good to go.   I'm just going to stick with v5.0.0 because i actually don't remember ever having any trouble with it, and i don't remember v5.0.4 adding anything i was 'missing' or 'needed'
    hopefully, this thread will be useful for any future folks that run into trouble - and it's got a solution for both Windows and OS X
    happy editing,
    peace

    Make sure you have the latest Adobe Reader installed for your OS.

    Did you try using Preview. If you control click on the PDF on your desktop you can use the "open with" option.

    4. Click on the Internet category on the left pane.
    5. Now, make sure that Display PDF in Browser option is checked.
    If above steps doesn't work then let me know which Browser you are using, may be we have to do some settings there.

  • Adobe Indesign & Illustrator CS6 will not open files off server after Mac Maverick update.

    I updated to Mac OS X Maverick and all the sudden my InDesign and Illustrator will not open files off of my works network.  I read somewhere about installing the new Java update may help fix it, but I tried it and it did not. I have restarted my computer and reset the connection to the server multiple times, but it does nothing.
    The exact message I get is:  "Cannot open the files "xxxx.indd" Adobe InDesign may not support the file format, a plug-in that supports the file may be missing, or the file may be open in another application"  I know for a fact that it is not open in another application so it is not that. I have tried multiple files on the server as well.
    For Illustrator, I try to open a file from the server and it just freezes and does not respond so I have to force quit.
    Does anyone have any suggestions? Please help!

    If you had asked before you did this I would have told you not to move to Mavericks unless you were prepared for problems. I’m not a proponent of upgrade installations for operating systems and there’s no way to eliminate that as the cause.
    That said, before you start erasing the whole machine, try uninstalling CS6 and then reinstalling it. You might want to run the cleaner tool after the uninstallation.

  • I just bought and downloaded an embroidery file but Adobe Reader will not open it.  What can I do?

    I just bought and downloaded an embroidery file but Adobe Reader will not open it. What can I do?

    Is it actually a PDF file or something else.
    You haven't given us enough information to do anything other than throw random guesses your way.
    Version of Reader? File type? Downloaded and saved to your desktop or are you clicking a link?
    Opening in browser or using File>Open in Reader?
    More info is better.

    Newly installed Acrobat will NOT open from Creative Cloud app on Desktop using Windows 7 Pro - what's the problem?

    the cc desktop app is used to install and update cc programs (and a few other thinigs).  but that does not include 'opening' the installed programs.
    click your start button or your program files directory to find the acrobat executable to launch acrobat (and any of your other apps, adobe or otherwise).

  • Adobe Reader will not open embedded PDFs in Safari with Yosemite

    Adobe Reader will not open embedded PDFs in Safari with Yosemite installed

    That looks like a perfectly good PDF, but since it's trying to open in Microsoft Word, that means your file association for .pdf files is incorrect.  You should change it to point to Adobe Reader instead of Word.

  • Adobe Reader will not open PDFs

    Adobe Reader will not open any PDFs. It will not open any new PDFs, downloaded from online, or old ones that have already downloaded and saved to a file. I have tried to repair Adobe Reader XI and reinstalled the most updated version. When I attempt to open a PDF, it tries to open it in Micrsoft Word, promting a file converstion (that fails).

  • Adobe Reader could not open "file"

    Adobe Reader could not open "file" because it is either not a supported file or it has been damaged. All files and programs on the desktop are shown as Adobe Reader ikons. When I remove the Adobe Reader program, the desktop is ok but when I reinstall the Adobe Reader it makes a mess again on the desktop and in all programs. It seems that the Adobe Reader is somehow a default program for all applications. How do I solve that problem? Best regards Helle D.

    For your first question: are you sure that 'file' is a PDF file and that it is not damaged? And you may find this useful for your second question:
