Adobe reader X will not open files on the web

Adobe reader X will not open files on the web.  It works fine on off-line files.

Hello Ray,
Please try following steps:
1. Run the installed Adobe Reader X.
2. Click on Edit in the menu bar.
3. Then click on Preferences in the drop down menu list.
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 Reader XI will not open files

    Hi, I have tried to open pdf in Adobe Reader XI but the programme flashes open briefly without displaying the file and immediately closes again.
    No warnings are displayed.
    I've tried re-installing, disabling protection and checking incompatibilities without success - any suggestions?

    If you are in Windows (which we don't know), you can try using Windows Explorer to navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0\Reader, then double-click on Eula.exe and accept the license agreement

  • 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 Reader XI does not open files with a command line "path" argument.

    Adobe Reader XI does not open files with a command line "path" argument. Version X and lower all worked fine. I have deleted and reinstalled the program with no success. Is this a bug?

    Hi Daniel,
    What is the make of the printer and is it using PCL or PS driver.?
    Do you have Acrobat installed on this machine as well?
    Please check if 'Print Spooler' service is running on the machine.

  • Adobe Reader 8 will not open any pdf files.

    I have a Mac OS X G5. I have Adobe Reader 8 installed. I cannot open any pdf files. It has never worked since installing it. I tried going to File> Open with> Adobe Reader> I get an error that says: the file could not be opened because the file is either not supported or it has been damaged (for example it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly coded). This error occurs no matter where I get the file; email or web page.
    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    I did get around this problem by trashing Reader 8 and confirming that I still had Reader 7.05 installed
    This tip in the MacWorld forum worked for me:

    Now I can open pdf files from the internet or email, in Reader 7.05.

  • Adobe Reader X - will not open PDFs

    When I double click PDFs - they do not open.  I have Win 7, 64-Bit.  I can open my Reader X program (ver.10.1.3).
    I also have Adobe Acrobat X Pro installed on this PC - which now will not open at all - it was working previously.
    If I right click a PDF file in explorer, I can select 'Open with Adobe Reader X' and it will open the PDF.
    But if a PDF is attached to an email - I cannot double click to open it, the only way is to save it & right click it - a real pain!
    Anyone seen this issue and solved it?
    Thanks for any help...!

    OK - probloem now solved:
    I uninstalled Reader X and Acrobat X Pro.
    Rebooted PC,
    Re-installed my Acrobat X Pro.
    And now I ma back to normal - can click on PDFs & they open - hurray!!
    Simple - I should have done this a couple of days ago.  But with so many listings saying it didn't work for them I didn't go that route... 
    Glad I changed my mind & gave it a go now.

  • Adobe Reader XI will not open MMS Links

    I am trying to create a document in PDF format for a client that has an MMS link in it but it will not open from Adobe Reader. I got someone to test it with Adobe Acrobat and it works. If I try to create the document from Adobe Acrobat it doesn't make a difference. I have my default web browser set to Internet Explorer since that is the only web browser that works with this kind of link. (Microsoft Media Services). I can copy and paste the link into Internet Explorer and it will Launch correctly so it is something specific with Adobe Reader.
    Any suggestions on how to resolve this.
    I am creating the document with Word 2013 and saving it as a PDF ( The Links works fine form Word.)

    Some other things to try...
    Update to Reader version 11.0.5
    Can you open Adobe Reader by itself?  If so, try disabling Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].
    If you cannot open Reader by itself, try to disable Protected Mode in the registry; download, unzip, then run the attached registry script
    It could even be a malware issue; see http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/reader-core-dll-error.html

  • PDF's in Acrobat Reader X will not open when using the browser, Internet explorer opertes all ok? Mozella 4 is the default browser! Windows XP Home ed with all latest updates!

    When using the Mozella Firefox 4 browser and the NEW version Adobe Reader X, PDF's online will not ever open. After 1-3 minuites, I eventually get a message the Adobe reader is running, but need to close and try again! I get same results when trying again.
    Internet Explorer operates and opens the online PDF's all ok and the Adobe Reader X seems to operate all else ok!
    I think, but not sure, that this issue appeared when the Adobe Reader updated from the older version 9 or so to the NEW Adobe Reader X version about 1 or 2 weeks ago, but not sure. I just remember that Mozella always worked ok previously to the Adobe Reader X version for opening online PDF's last month, etc.
    Note that I said that Internet Explorer browser operates ok Using the New automatically upgraded Adobe Reader X for viewing PDF"S! (adobe notified me that the new version 10 (X) was available for updating, etc) I also just discovered that google chrome browser opens the online PDF's ok!
    I have not trying re-storing the computer to the previous month, etc, since the issue seems to be with Mozella not liking the Adobe Reader X version and Internet Explored browser operating ok!
    Any ideas????

    I had the same problem and my solution was to disable the PDF extension that came with Firefox 4 which belongs to another company. I found out that it wast interfering with ReaderX. I unabled it and restarted Firefox. I have had no problems since then. Go to Tools, Add-On and click on Extensions and disable the PDF extension. I hope this helps

  • Adobe Reader 9 will not let me change the voice for Read Aloud.

    I use two voices on my computer (which is a Mac notebook running Snow Leopard), Alex, the standard voice for English, and a German voice, Infovox Juiia. When I try to change from Alex to Julia to have a German languge PDF read aloud, I go to Preferences, Reader, Read Out Loud options, but the Voice dropbox only offers me the Alex voice, and clicking on the up and down arrows does not work. If I check the Use Default Voice, it still uses Alex, even if I have set Julia as my System voice in System Preferences.

    I have spent two days at ti, but have finally resolved it myself. I deleted my Adobe Reader and installed an older version, and the problem disappeared. By the way, I also tried AR11, but the probelm was there too.

  • Adobe Reader XI will not open any PDF file

    I have tried removing and reloading reader.  I have also tried using the WIndows Control Panel to repair the Adobe file.  Nothing has helped.  I cannot open Adobe Reader XI directly from the programs folder.  Nor will it open any PDF file when I double click the file.  I am running WIndows XP.

  • Adobe reader 9 will not open in a IE browser window in windows 7 and Server 2003

    In short, I think their products do not work very well.  I'm not surprised Steve Jobs will not allow Flash on his products and I am not a Mac fan.  Every computer I've installed Reader 9 on has had problems opening a pdf in a browser window.  I've tried this on various versions of Windows with the same results.  To fix it I had to install Reader 8.  This is not a solution.

    I've got the same problem. I'll look forward to solving this on this thread.
    It really sucks- I have a ton of pdf files, and can't save them to Documents or send them out of the Adobe file.

  • Adobe Reader XI - will not open

    Message says -"Could not open because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged." Can someone please give me some help with this.
    Judging by all the activity on this board, it looks to me like Adobe is a real pain in the ***!!

    Adobe 10 & 11 sometimes have problems starting up.
    I have spent many hours trying various things.
    It seems that Windows or Adobe store some information in the folders/registry.
    Completely uninstall 10 & 11. I recommend running a program that removes all traces of the programs. (I used Ibit Uninstaller)
    Reinstall in a different folder (don't miss the prompt to change the destination folder).
    This seems to solve most problems.

  • Adobe Reader 9 will not open any pdf files

    I am running Windows 7 and use Adobe Reder frequently. Never had a problem. Last week, whenver I try to open a PDF file, I get a warning box "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
    The only thng that changed recently was a couple large Windows updates... I am always suspect when a large update occurs. I uninstalled the Reader and Download Manager and ree-installed themm. No change in performance.
    I checked the registry key - it looks correct based on other posts.
    Does anyone have any suggestions what else to try??
