Open a pdf directly in IE11 (ACrobat Reader VI, Windows 8.1)

Hello!
We use Acrobat Reader, Windows 8.1 and IE11 in our company.
Unfortunately no user is able to open a pdf directly with IE11.
Instead of opening the pdf there is a popup which asked what to do with the pdf -open, save or saveas
I couldn't find a way to setup a default action (open)
In earlier versions it was possible to set the option "open in Browser".
This option is missing in AR11.
But why?
How can i set the deafult action?
thx

Hello together!
the problem was still there, so i decided to modify my search.
Fortunately i found a technet-post, which described our problem.
The following solution worked in our enviroment. PDF-documents will now be opened directly in IE11.
In Windows 7 (also Win8.1!!!!!), there is not the key AttachmentExecute by default. For this reason, Checkbox for "always ask before opening this type of file" is missing in the Download prompt window.
Actually, you can choose to add this key in your Registry by following txt, Copy them to notepad, then renamed as .reg file. After that, import to Registry.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\AttachmentExecute\{0002DF01-0000-0000- C000-000000000046}] 
" AcroPDF.PDF.1"=hex(0):
Many Thanks to Roger Lu from the technet community support!

    When I try to open a pdf  I get a acrobat reader error, It states ( There was an error opening this document. Could not repair file.

    There is not modern program called Acrobat Reader. There is an Adobe Reader program, there is an Adobe Acrobat (Pro or Std) program. Which program are you using? Under which OS?

  • How to I stop the Preview Pane in Windows 7 retaining control when I open a PDF document using Adobe Acrobat (Reader is NOT installed)

    I have the preview pane active when selecting PDF Documents.  When I open a PDF document I am unable to save any changes. the error message I receive:
    "The documents could not be saved. The file ma be read-only,or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name of in a different folder"
    The document is not read only and no other user has it open.  If I turn the preview pane OFF there is no problem saving changes.  I have also un-installed Adobe Reader.
    Other programs (such as Excel, Word) do not experience the same problems as the PDF documents.
    Does anyone have a solution?

    Hi snoreaustralia,
    It sounds like you just need to associate the PDF filename extension with Acrobat, rather than Preview. Please see this document from the Microsoft Help for instructions on choosing the default program for opening a particular file type (in your case, PDF): Change which programs Windows uses by default - Windows Help

  • Picture in PDF broken in Adobe Acrobat Reader for Windows

    Hi,
    I always thought that Adobe's PDF-format is the ultimative, interchangeable file format. Well, what a surprise: it isn't:
    I have a picture in a PDF document.
    It is displayed fine on my Mac in Preview and in Adobe Acrobat 8.
    The picture has severe distortions on Windows (eg. current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader).
    You can find this PDF here: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/285107/Picture.pdf
    Please let me know how I can fix this?
    Furthermore I would love to know why even Adobe cannot manage to display the PDF correctly under Windows?
    Thanks
    Daniel

    Ok, just to summarize the status of my PDF:
    Doesn't work in Adobe Acrobat X Pro (Win XP)
    Doesn't work in Adobe Acrobat Reader X (Win XP)
    Works just fine in Evince (Win XP)
    Works in Adobe Acrobat 8 Pro (Mac)
    Works in Preview (Mac)
    Works in Skim (Mac)
    So most of the rederers tested display it correctly. For me that looks like a huge inconsitency in the Adobe Acrobat product family. It is not platform specific, because it does work in Windows as well (using other renderers).
    I have two issues with that:
    How come that Adobe Acrobat seems to be the only renderer with issues with this file?
    Why do some version of Adobe Acrobat display it, while others don't?
    To me that really sucks since I trusted the portability of PDF and my own Pro version of AA on my Mac far too much!
    My lessons learnt here: Do not use Adobe products since they cannot be used consistently accross platforms (see Flash for another example).
    Since the support policy of Adobe does only offer this forum free-of-charge even for obviously valid bugs, I decline to report this (again) as a bug due to my own time constraints.

  • Blank error message with ? appears and PDF does not open in Browser (IE11) when clicking link to open pdf. PC - IE11 Acrobat 9.0

    Blank error message with ? appears and PDF does not open in Browser (IE11) when clicking link to open pdf. PC - IE11 Acrobat 9.0
    Cannot access in browser PDF files unless blank box is closed and then website address is clicked on again in browser address bar and page reloaded.
    Uninstalled Acrobat 9, reinstalled, still same problem.
    Help please!

    Yes I can it only happens in the browser..
    I reinstalled Windows on my machine and started over a couple of weeks ago.
    When my desktop started up I didn’t have Acrobat installed and clicked on a pdf file and the open with xxx dialogue box came open.
    I chose a different program as Acrobat wasn’t installed yet so it associated pdf files with another program.
    Later Installed Acrobat and couldn’t associate the pdf file with acrobat so I went into Folder Options and manually associated PDF files with Acrobat.
    Ever since then I get the error when something is downloaded and opened in the browser.
    Works fine everywhere else and when I cancel the blank error, highlight the web address and press enter to reload it works 90% of the time.
    Not sure what to do..

  • How can i set Adobe to open pdf from a secure website in the browser, it just pops up and asks to open save or download. we want it to just open the PDF directly in the browser with no popups, using IE 11

    Hi,
    We are running Internet explorer 11 with the latest version of Adobe Reader.
    have found when users login to a secure website and it has pdf links on there, it doesnt open these pdf directly in the browser, it wants to save them and then open them.
    is there anything we can change to allow them to be opened directly in the browser? 
    Thanks,
    Cam

    Very strange!  What is your installed Reader version?
    Try disabling Protected Mode in Adobe Reader [Edit | Preferences | Security (Enhanced)].

  • PDF Documents compatible with Acrobat Reader 5.0

    Which version (Standard, Pro or Ext Pro) of Adobe Acrobat 9.0  family should I buy to create PDF documents compatible with Acrobat Reader 5.0 ????
    Is it possible to create PDF files from HTML and navigate through the links ????
    Thank you.

    Thank you for your answer.
    Related to my first question (compatibility with Acrobat Reader 5.0), how should I save the PDF created ????  Saving the PDF in Acrobat Pro 9.0 with standard save option makes the document not readable by Acrobat Reader 5.0.
    Should I save the document as PDF/A, PDF/X or any other subset ?????  If so, I'm not sure if they are included in the Standard.
    Thank you in advance.

    Why the question marks? Can you open PDF files or not? You don't need Firefox to open PDF files.

    Al,
    http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/tech-specs.html doesn't mention Windows Server 2012. I expect it should work. It should not kill the system. Give it a try an let us know.

  • After installing Acrobat/Reader on Windows 7 or Vista, icons of all applications/file-types change t

    After installing Acrobat/Reader on Windows 7 or Vista, icons of all applications/file-types change to Acrobat/Reader icon and double clicking on any icon/file launches Acrobat/Reader (instead of the native application associated to the file type). Is there an easy fix for this problem?

    I'm sorry, but I wasn't aware of a native PDF viewer for Windows.
    Nonetheless, if you want to change your default PDF application in Windows, you need to right click on any .PDF file, select "Properties",
    then "Change",
    then select the program you want to open a PDF with.

  • I cannot open this PDF file in Acrobat 8 Pro or in Acrobat Reader on Windows 7 64-bit

    I have a PDF file that I could open on my Windows XP 32-bit laptop in Acrobat 8 Pro or in Acrobat Reader.  I then upgraded to a Windows 7 64-bit laptop.  But now in Win7-64, I cannot open this same file using the same apps (Acrobat 8 Pro & Acrobat Reader XI). 
    When I try to open it in Acrobat 8, it does not load and instead a popup windows appears saying -
    Adobe Updater
    Some components needed to complete this operation are missing but information about them may be available on the Adobe website. Would you like to search the Adobe website for the missing components? 
    And I can choose either the OK or Quit buttons.  When I click OK, a web browser starts and goes to this website -
    http://www.adobe.com/special/adobe_update_manager/?type=Filter&name=FOPN_foweb&version=0.0 .0.0&lang=en_US&os=Windows&osver=6.1.7601&appid=acrobat8pro-en_US&cpu=intel
    This webpage says -
    Adobe Update Manager
    Adobe cannot locate the requested plugin. New plugins will be listed on this page. Currently there are no plugins.
    So now I am stuck, no direction to go.  I am left without any solution from Adobe for Acrobat on this file.
    When I try to open this PDF file in Reader, it does not load and instead a web browser is spawned loading the webpage -
    http://plugin.fileopen.com/Default.aspx?bhcp=1
    This is the FileOpen Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat/Reader, which prompts to -
    Please click OK to download the FileOpen Plug-in Installer for Adobe Acrobat/Reader 
    I click on OK, download and run the Installer file, accept the terms, and installed the FileOpen Client (x64) B928.  Upon completion, it prompts to Finish.  But it does not automatically bring Reader up or try to load the file.  So I try again to load the PDF file into Reader.  But once again, the file does not load and the web browser is spawned loading the same FileOpen Plug-in Installer link.  I click OK again, and start the same FileOpen Client process.  This time, it recognizes that I have FileOpen Client installed, and the window gives me two choices, Repair or Remove.  So since I apparently need this Plug-in, I choose Repair.  The process seems to complete the Repair.  But when I try to load the file, it still brings me back to the FileOpen Plug-in webpage.  So now I am stuck again, and left without any solution from Adobe for Reader on this file. 
    I tried Adobe support.  But apparently Adobe does not support past releases of their products (Acrobat 8), and also does not give free support for the current version of their free products (Reader XI). 
    Can this be fixed? 

    How is Acrobat 8 not fully Windows 7 compatible?  I see discussions on this Adobe Community saying how Acrobat 8 does work on Windows 7 and with 64-bit.  It appears that if Acrobat 8 is updated to the latest version, then this should fix AA8-Win7 issues.  And I am at the latest AA8 version, 8.3.1. 
    And how are Acrobat 8 and Reader XI are not compatible?  I have always had Acrobat and Reader installed on the same PC, without ever having any issues.  And Adobe allows the installation of one after the other.  So apparently Adobe allows them both to exist together.  If they are incompatible, then why would Adobe allow them to exist together? 
    Anyway, I did uninstall the FileOpen Plug-in and the Reader XI, then reinstalled the FileOpen Plug-in.  So now Reader is not installed and only Acrobat 8 is installed.  I then tried to load the PDF file, but I still get the Acrobat 8 error described above. 

  • When I open a PDF directly in acrobat pro 11 it provides the review pane at the right hand side on clicking on Comment button. But when I open it through browser the review  pane is missing.

    The review pane is missing at the right hand side when I open a PDF in browser. I am using acrobat pro 11 and it is not even providing the option to prevent the PDF to open in browser.
    Also, the review pane appears when I launch the PDF in acrobat directly.
    Please could you help resolving this issue?

  • Can't Open PDF Package In Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.3

    Yesterday, I created a PDF Package of about 30 documents. When I attempt to open the package using Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.3, I get the Data Execution Prevention pop-up message saying that the file cannot be opened. Does anyone have any thoughts on why this is happening?

    Have not tried that yet. It was next on my schedule. I have another project that I'm working concurrently, but will have some time later today and will try that. Will post the results. Thanks for the suggestion.
