Can't open PDF

I have a MacAir...I have the most recent version of adobe, run safari and am unable to open PDF's...

Back up all data.
If Adobe Reader or Acrobat is installed, there should be a setting in its preferences such as Display PDF in Browser. I don't use those applications myself, so I can't be more precise. Deselect that setting, if it's selected. Otherwise do as follows.
Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it, the copy the selected text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C:
/Library/Internet Plug-ins
In the Finder, select
Go ▹ Go to Folder
from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-G. Paste into the text box that opens (command-V), then press return.
From the folder that opens, move to the Trash any items that have "Adobe" or “PDF” in the name. You may be prompted for your login password. Then quit and relaunch Safari, and test.
The "Silverlight" web plugin distributed by Microsoft can also interfere with PDF display in Safari, so you may need to remove it as well, if it's present. The same goes for a plugin called "iGetter," and perhaps others — I don't have a complete list.
If you still have the issue, repeat with this line:
~/Library/Internet Plug-ins
If you don’t like the results of this procedure, restore the items from the backup you made before you started. Relaunch Safari again.

    Hi.  I have a Dell PC running Windows 7 64 bit.  I have the latest version of Adobe Reader,  It worked yesterday.  Today I have job training to do that is due tomorrow morning and I can't open PDF files.  I have to open a guide and read it and take a test tomorrow.  I have deleted and reinstalled the application.  I have rebooted.  I have made sure my PDF's are associated with the program.  Every PDF on my computer won't open and I get the same error message.  It simply says Attempt to access invalid address.  How can I fix this?  Thanks.

    Hi Don,
    I have seen this issue fixed for some users by modifying the following registry key:
    The key is "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management" MoveImages
    Set the key to 1 instead of 0 then reboot the machine.
    In case you still face the issue try the following registry key change:
    The only thing you have to do is rename the following key at the REGEDIT, and everything will be fine !!
    BEFORE:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\iexplore.exe
    AFTER:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\iexplore.old
    Note: Please take a backup of the registry before attempting this change.
    Regards,
    Rave

    I am running Vista and Windows Mail, I can not open PDF files when in Windows Mail, I must save to Desktop first, this has changes recently and I do not know why or how to fix.

    I would like to open PDF's straight from Window Mail.

    Good day Jeff.
    I am running most current Adobe Reader X.

  • I can't open PDF files even though I have downloaded Adobe Reader.  I am using a Mac book Pro

    I can't open PDF files as the screen message says I have to reopen the computer and sign the Adobe Reader agreement but even though Adobe has downloaded I don't get any screen message indicating where I would do this.
    Where is this?

    after downloading, did you install adobe reader?

  • Suddenly Can't Open PDFs. Starting about three days ago firefox will no longer open any PDFs. I get a blank page in a new tab.

    Suddenly Can't Open PDFs in Firefox. Starting about three days ago firefox will no longer open any PDFs. I get a blank page in a new tab. Nice timing, with finals and everything where I need to view PDFs of practice tests.

    Mozilla Firefox did not do their job, here. I am an editor and am constantly online. Now, I have to go to Safari to download PDFs. I reinstalled an earlier version of Firefox to get rid of the problem, but somehow Firefox has deactivated my PDF download feature. This is a total wreck and I am so angry I could spit. Stop launching new products until you have fully tested them. Customers are not your guinea pigs. Please fix this now- and fire a few idiots on the way- the ones who let this happen.

  • Can't open PDF files from Windows Explorer on Windows 8.1

    Hello,
    after I've upgraded to Windows 8.1, I can't open PDF files from Windows Explorer (directly double clicking the file). The AcroRd32.exe runs in the background (2x !) as I see the processes in task manager, but there is no user interface visible. I have Acrobat
    Reader 11.0.06, the desktop version (not Metro). I tried uninstalling the Acrobat reader and installing it again but this didn't help. The only way to open PDF files is to close the AcroRd32.exe from the task manager, open empty Acrobat Reader from the desktop
    and then drag&drop the PDF file over that window. This is quite inconvenient. Is there a way to fix this issue so I can open PDF files directly from windows explorer?
    Many thanks!

    I had to install adobe reader, but   PDF's used to display just fine with IE, any idea what happened ?
    Windows 8.1 pro.
    thx

  • I can't open PDF files with adobe flash player

    I have installed it and whenever I try to open pdf files it says I need to agree with your liscens and you do that automatically when you download it. I have followed all your instructions on your website and uninstalled it and installed again, but I can't open pdf files with it. I don't know what the problem is exactly, but it's really frustrating..

    Flash Player CANNOT open PDFs because they AREN'T Flash Documents.
    Adobe Reader opens PDFs.
    To accept the license agreement (NOT the one you accepted to download or install - the one for USE)
    Windows:
    Go to: C/Program Files(x86)/Adobe/Reader 11.0/Reader and double click the eula.exe file. The license agreement will open for you to accept.
    Mac:
    Go to: Mac HD/Applications and double click the Reader app. The license agreement will open THE FIRST TIME you open it.

  • Can Not Open PDF Attachments

    I can not open PDF attachments from outlook 2010. I am running windows 8  and using Adobe version 11.0.2  If I save the file to desktop, then it will allow me to open it and print it.
    Thanks in advance for yor help.
    the error says it can not open the file because it is unsupported or corrupt.

    If you can't open the attachment, have your client/ customer or whatever fix their defective copy of Outlook and send real mail attachments not TNEF encoded rubbish. They are spewing defective email every time they click send on a mail with an attachment.

  • Can't open PDF files in Firefox 16.0.1

    Mac OS 10.6.8, Firefox 16.0.1, PDF Viewer 0.6.39 installed. In Firefox>Preferences>Applications, PDFs are supposed to be handled by the PDF Browser 2.4.4 plug-in for Preview. However, when I try to view a PDF in Firefox, I get this:
    "We are sorry, but Adobe Reader is unable to show documents in this browser configuration.
    "Please use your browser to download this file and open it in Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat.
    "To avoid this message in the future, many browsers provide a way to turn off certain add-ons, and some are able to show this document natively. Please contact your browser vendor for more details."
    Why is Adobe Reader trying to open the PDF when Preview is the default? How do I disable Adobe Reader from doing anything in Firefox?

    cor-el, you nailed it.
    There was a plug-in called "Adobe Acrobat NPAPI". With that disabled and the PDF Browser Plugin 2.4.4 enabled, I can now open PDFs in Firefox.

  • Can't open pdf:s in My documents.

    I have moved My documents to a secondary hdd to save space on c:. I have Win7 pro and i have changed under my userprofile were the directory My documents is.
    The problem is that i can't open pdf-files on My documents with Adobe Reader. I only recieve a message, "There was a problem when this document was opened. Access is denied." (Translated from Swedish)
    I can open the file without any problem if i move it to c:. I don't have any problems with any other type of documents.
    Please help! I use the latest version of Adobe Reader and i have updated windows and drivers.

    Hi,
    Thanks a lot for the screenshots and the information.Would it be possible for you to try the following at your end.
    1. Create another folder under C:\ with some Latin Characters such as Ö or ä (as being used in the redirected path for My Documents etc.). Now place any PDF in this folder and try and access the same. Are you able to access it this time?
    2. Redirect the My Documents folder to some other path which does not have any Latin character and see if the issue is still reproducible.
