Not able to open pdf and adobe reader on windows xp sp3.

Hello,
I am not able to open pdf and adobe reader on my windows xp sp3 computer. I have reinstalled adobe reader 11.0.3 twice, but, no luck. I would appreciate if you could help me in resolving this issue. Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Venkata

You can try using this tool to first remove all traces of Reader from your computer:
http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/acrobatcleaner.html
Then, you can download the full offline Reader installer from
http://get.adobe.com/reader/enterprise/
After downloading, restart your computer and run the installer before doing anything else.

  • Trying to open pdf and Adobe Reader Stops Working...Please Help

    Trying to open PDF and it keeps popping up that Adobe Reader Stopped Working.  And doesn't seem to find a solution to fix.  Has been going on for a couple days.  Can't access pdf files needed for my business.

    With Reader XI I assume you mean 11.0.0; try updating to 11.0.06.
    Also, can you open Reader by itself?  If so, try to disable Protected Mode [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].

  • I'm not able to open PDF files in Adobe Reader XI.

    I recently updated to Adobe Reader XI and now I can't open any of my PDF documents or PDF e-mail attachments.  When I click on a document I now get a window that asks if I want to allow this file to open.  I click yes and get a monstrousity the likes I've never seen.  It blacks out my screen for a couple seconds and then I get a mixture of my desktop, task bar, and a window wanting to know if I want to open this with Protected Mode disabled.  It only fills 3/4 of the screen, the items all all blown-up in size, and are distorted.  In playing with this I have gotten notes that I have an "Incompatable Application" and "Acrobat failed to connect to a DDS Server".  On occasion I will get an Adobe Reader screen that is completely greyed out with no content in it and after a couple of seconds it goes off.  Other times I got the window about Protected Mode and I've clicked on to disable it but that doesn't work either.  I removed Adobe Reader XI and re-installed Adobe Reader X and I still have the same problem which I did not have before.  I 'm running Windows 7 Professional and have McAfee anti-virus, which I have disbled on one occasion during download and that I still had the same problem.  I went to program files to find the End User License Agreement and try to see if I needed to click on 'Accept" but it tells me the file does not exist.  I even tried using System Restore to take me back to before I did the upgrade to Adobe Reader XI and I still have this problem.  I'm at the end of my knowledge level and because these files are needed in my business I'm only able to operate at about 50%.

  • Can not open pdfs w/adobe reader for android on archos 10i tablet?

    I can not open pdfs w/adobe reader for android on archos 10i tablet? How to fix it?

    Hi Dennis, thank you for the reply. I have Adobe Reader installed and open. When I click on the pdf documents an error message box opens and says "Error. The document cannot be opened beacause it is not a valid pdf document". Perhaps the pdf's on the USB memory stick are corrupted. I can't open them on the laptop either. I'll reload them and try again.

  • How to change outlook mail using Word to try and open PDF to Adobe Reader XI?

    how to change outlook mail using Word to try and open PDF to Adobe Reader XI?

    I've never found technology to make life easier. It mainly offers the promise (often unfulfilled) of making it cheaper or quicker. This didn't happen when the Girl Guides put a form in an envelope and posted it. But they probably laid off the person whose job that was with the promise of everything being easy on the internet.
    PDF has, curiously, become a victim of its own success. A few years ago, you could say to people "You need Adobe Reader" and it was the only serious game in town. So they got it and it works. Now everyone is making their own PDF reader for whatever reason, fewer and fewer people can be sure of having Reader. (PDF readers come at least with every Mac, every Windows 8 system, Chrome and FireFox, which covers a LOT of ground).
    This is coupled with a bizarre decision Adobe made a few years ago to have two kinds of form, one of which all the other software fails with (and, as I noted, even Adobe's own software on iPad and Android fails). This was a neat idea which was designed for big corporations. Then the really big mistake: giving everyone with Acrobat the tools to make these new kinds of form, and making it seem they were preferre or the only game in town. This is finished now (Acrobat 11 doesn't include this big boy's software) but the damage is done, oh how it is done.
    Even regular forms tend to only work properly in real Adobe Reader. The fact is, if you make or distribute PDF forms you need to tell people to use Adobe Reader, and to know exactly how to help them do that. If people can't do that or their users won't be motivated to bother, then PDF forms are no longer a suitable choice. Sad but true.

  • Not able to open pdf file

    I am not able to open PDF file of size greater than 700 Mb in my surface tab?

    Hi there @Delta0  and welcome to the community!
    I understand you can scan however, you cannot open up the PDF file afterwards.
    Please let me know which operating system you are running and I will certainly look into this issue for you.
    Which Windows Operating System am I running?
    Mac OS X: How Do I Find Which Mac OS X Version Is on My Computer?
    In the meantime, try updating Adobe to see if that helps.

  • Not able to open PDF files

    Not able to open PDF files. Before I switched to Lion OS, clicking on a pdf would automatically open it in Adobe Reader. Now I either get a black page or I get just the first page of the document but still in Safari. I would like the pdf to open Adobe Reader. I have tried some of the suggestions in other threads such as deleting all PDF items from Library/Internet Plug-Ins. That did not work.

    Hi ,
    Make sure to back up your Mac before messing around with any system files.
    Press and hold COMMAND + TAB to bring up your Mac’s application switcher, then keep tapping the TAB key while still holding down the COMMAND key until the selector lands on Finder. When it does, go ahead and release the COMMAND and TAB keys.
    Click on the Go menu at the top of the screen, select “Go to folder…” then copy and paste this folder “path” into the pop-up window:
    /Library/Internet Plug-ins
    A new folder window will appear, showing a list of all the browser plug-ins installed in Safari—and at the very top (if the list is sorted alphabetically), you should see one or more files labeled “AdobePDFViewer.” Drag the old Adobe plug-ins into the Trash, then quit and restart Safari.
    Try opening a PDF in Safari again—and yes, it should work, using Safari’s own “native” PDF reader.
    Now, want to open PDFs in Safari using a fresh Adobe PDF Viewer plug-in? Try this:
    Visit this page to download and install the latest (and free) version of Adobe Reader.
    Quit and re-launch Safari, then open a PDF file directly in the browser; when you do, the PDF should open using your new Adobe Reader plug-in.

    Hi,am not able to open PDF Files in Mozilla Firefox without using plugins...I need Solution

    Hello,
    Please see the support article below for full information on viewing PDF in Firefox:
    [[View PDF files in Firefox without downloading them]]
    If you want to use Firefox's built in PDF viewer (i.e. not a plugin) then you will need to ensure that any PDF plugins are uninstalled from Firefox and that 'Preview in Firefox' is selected as the Action for PDF files (see screenshot below).
    I hope that helps. Let me know if not.
