How can I read pdf files from LabVIEW with different versions of Acrobat reader?

How can I read pdf files from LabVIEW with different versions of Acrobat reader?
I have made a LabVIEW program where I have possibility to read a PDF document.  When I made this LabVIEW program it was Acrobat Reader 5.0.5 that was installed on the PC. Lather when the Acrobat Reader was upgraded to version 6.0, there was an error when VI tries to launch the LabVIEW program. And Later again when we upgraded to Acrobat Reader 7.0.5 I must again do some changes and rebuild the EXE files again
It isn't so very big job to do the changes in one single LabVIEW program, but we have built a lot of LabVIEW programs so this take time to due changes every time vi update Acrobat Reader. (We have build EXE files.)
The job is to right click the ActiveX container and Click "Insert ActiveX Object", then I can brows the computer for the new version of acrobat Reader. After this I must rebuild all the "methods" in the Activex call to make the VI executable again.
Is there a way to build LabVIEW program so I don't have to do this job every time we update Acrobat Reader?
This LabVIEW program is written in LabVIEW 6.1, but I se the problem is the same in LabVIEW 8.2.

hi there
try the vi\platform\browser.llb\Open Acrobat
it uses DDE or the command line to run an external application (e.g. Adobe Acrobat)

    Can you generate a PDF file from LabVIEW?

    Hi there,
    I just read this post in passing.
    Heres a fairly detailed forum post on the matter - seems to be a few work arounds, but basically no you can't with just the normal labview.

    Yes you can definitely do this. You'll need an app on the iPad that handles PDF viewing and editing. There are many around - two of the best I've seen are GoodReader and PDF Expert.
    In iTunes when you iPad is connected to your PC, go to the Apps tab and scroll down and you'll see the File Sharing section. You can drag files to there to share them to your iPad.
    You could also look at online file sync services like PDF to ePub Maker if you prefer not to have to connect your iPad to a PC

  • HELP! How can i restore/recover files from Bootcamp with Boot Failure - Missing operating system error?

    I am having a few problems with bootcamp on my imac. When i tried to move the bootcamp partition on windows 7 into free space, it crashed and turned off. Ever since i have had the error 'Missing operating system' and it fails to boot. I have some very important files on the bootcamp partition. Is it possible to recover these files or even to restore the bootcamp partition to it's original state? I do not have a backup of my bootcamp partition. Another problem i have is that ever since i tried to expand my macintosh HD partition into free space, when i hold alt while booting up (to choose which partition to boot like i normally do), the bootcamp partition has stopped appearing. This means that i cannot even boot the windows 7 bootcamp partition anymore!
    So basically here are my 2 questions:
    How can i restore/recover files from Bootcamp with Boot Failure - Missing operating system error?
    How can i make the Bootcamp partition appear in Startup Disk and when i hold the option key while starting up my computer to allow me to boot windows 7?
    Any solutions are very much apreciated!
    I know that bootcamp (disk0s4) hasn't been fully deleted since it appears in disk utility (i cant do anything to it though)
    And here is the error i see when i try to launch bootcamp (back when i was actually able to boot up bootcamp to the error screen)

    WinClone 3 is OS X and saves Windows image it makes for restore - that should work but you will have to try and you would need to make a new image unless it also works with a native Windows system restore image. It is now supported and has come a long way.
    Paragon Clone OS works and does disk-to-disk clone just like CCC you end up with two bootable drives. But does not work with your setup. It would let you clone and move your Windows install to an SSD or another disk drive though and be bootable.
    During its clone process it checks for errors which is very helpful and lets you know - something CCC and others should adopt more of.
    I wish for our/my sake you had re-read and rewritten the long 'story' and broken it into a brief list of facts we needed.
    OS X
    Backup (though external is much safer) and you want bootable OS X clones as well as TimeMachine
    There are a number of things to do like chkdsk and others as well as Windows DVD to do automatic system repairs and find out why.
    AppleHFS - the abilty to mount and read HFS volumes can be notorious.
    I would rearrange and redo your storage setup and how you use the 4-5 internal hard drive bays.

  • How to print a pdf file from Labview

    Does anyone know how to print a pdf file form Labview. I need to be able to point on the pdf file and to print it.
    Activex examples doesnt seem to be working it always displays an error, on every PC that I tryed to run it.
    {"code 3005" ,,,"Automation Open: Object specified is not creatable in Display PDF in"}.
    Thank you for your help.

    You can use the "System". The command line should have the following structure:
    "<Path to AcroRd32.exe>" /t "<Path to document>" "Printer name"
    For example"
    "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 5.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" /t "C:\myreport.pdf" "Tektronix Phaser 300i"

  • How can I upload .pdf file from Mac to iPhone or is there an app for that?

    How can I upload a .pdf file from my mac to iPhone 3G?
    Or is there an app that will allow me to that?
    Thanks in advance

    The app called "Air Sharing" allows you to do that. Connect to a wifi network, run the program and you can mount your iphone as a drive using Finder. Upload all the PDFs you like, and you can open them from within the Air Sharing app. Also, you can view most image files, most office files, etc.

  • How can I transfer PDF files from my Apple to my iPad?

    I can transfer "Word" documents from my Apple to my iPad by adding, within iTunes, the required files to the App. Pages and then sync.
    I can also add PDF files to my Pages App in iTunes using the same method, BUT I can't open them in Pages - only the Word documents open.
    Do I need a different to read PDF files in iPad or am I just doing it wrongly?
    Help - please

    I don't have the Pages app (but I think that it may only supports exporting as PDF, not reading them), but if you have the iBooks app then you can sync them to that via iTunes : add the PDFs to your computer's iTunes (File > Add File To Library) and they should then appear in the Books part of your Library, and you can then sync them to the iBooks app via the Books tab that appears on the right-hand side of iTunes when you've selected the iPad 'device' on the left-hand side.
    There are also other free PDF apps e.g. Adobe Reader

  • How can transfer my PDF file from my Computer to my iPad ? Ps: my computer not Mac .

    I have books and files in my computer I want to relocate it to my iPad to read it, what should I do? Step by step please .
    My PC is not Mac.

    You first need one or more apps on your iPad that support the types of file that you want to copy over to it, the iPad doesn't have a file system link a 'normal' computer, everything has to be stored within an app.
    For PDFs there are free apps such as Apple's iBooks app and also Adobe Reader - and paid-for apps such as GoodReader (which also supports read-only of word and excel documents). For documents the options include Apple's Pages app for Word documents, Numbers for Excel spreadsheets and Keynote for Powerpoint. And from third-parties apps such as Documents To Go ('premium' version) and QuickOffice Pro HD. As to how you then get the file to your chosen app will depend upon what the app supports - different apps will have different ways of copying their content to/from a computer e.g. via the file sharing section at the bottom of the device's apps tab when connected to iTunes, via your wifi network, email, dropbox etc.
    For iBooks, which supports PDFs, you should be able to add the PDFs to your iTunes library via File > Add To Library, and they should go into the Books section of your library. You can then sync them to iBooks by connecting your iPad to your computer and selecting it on the left-hand side of your computer's iTunes (if you have iTunes on your computer then you can enable the left-hand sidebar via control-S), and on the right-hand side use the Books tab to select and sync them to the iBooks app.

  • How can I keep PDF files from closing spontaneously?

    When I open a PDF file in Adobe reader it closes spontaneously in about 6 seconds. How can I fix that?

    I've also been having the problem of spontaneously closing PDFs, since installing Reader XI. The problem is not systematic. Sometimes PDFs do not open at first attempt but do eventually open after two, three or four tries, then spontaneously close after anywhere from one second to several minutes to an hour (while I am annotating them). The files seem to stablise after some period of working on them. Some files do not crash at all.
    I thought it might be embedded links to a server in India that cause the problem, until I had the same thing happen with a PDF I was looking at as a result of a web search. It does not happen with old PDFs, saved to my disc before Reader XI.
    No one yet has been able to diagnose the problem...

  • How can i open pdf files from the web without saving them

    Windows 7
    Firefox 5
    Adobe Reader 9
    when i want to see a web based pdf file i have to save it before opening it instead of it just opening in a pdf window.

    You can't.
    Those PDFs are only accessible on the Mac.
    They can not even be accessed by iOS.

  • Problems loading and saving pdf files from sites with latest version.

    On my utilities I wish to download and save pdf files of my e-bill.
    Lately when I click on getting bill, Firefox opens new tab and stops.
    with a light message in url place saying "Type a web address".
    To get around this I must do a right click on the save bill and
    select open in new window, then it opens a new copy of Firefox,
    and two tabs, with the second one asking me to use Adobe to see
    pdf file. I tell it to open and then save it and print it from the tab
    that opens with the pdf file in it. This never happened before was
    always able to just click on link and it would open new tab with
    pdf file there.

    Thanks for the replies. I don't think I was clear enough with my question.
    What I want to be able to do is to click on a PDF file in my Firefox browser and be able to save it as an Adobe PDF file, not a Preview PDF file, in any folder on my computer, rather than just the specified default location for downloads. This way I can save, for example, phone bills in the phone bills folder and bank statements in the bank statements folder without having to save them to the desktop, "Get Info" on each, and change the "Open with:" box from Preview to Adobe Reader.
    Fortunately, thanks to Michael's post, I found an add-on from Firefox that allows me to do just that:
    Thanks for your help. Now, within my Firefox browser, I can choose whether to view or download PDF files, always in Adobe rather than Preview, and when I save them I get the option to choose the location each and every time.

  • How can I open photoshop files from 1995 with no file extensions?

    These files are on CD and are definitely Photoshop 2 or 2.5 or 3. When I put the CD in my Mac is showing them as Unix Executable Files.
    I'm currently using Photoshop CS3 on Mac 10.5.8.
    I've tried adding extensions such as tif, psd, jpg etc but photoshop refuses to recognise them as photoshop files.

    Yes, you should be able to open them.
    Most likely you've forgotten what the file type was  (PICT maybe?).
    If you have a hex editor, you could open the file and look at the first 8 bytes or so and figure out what the file type is.
