Windows 7: Acrobat Reader Problem

Acrobat Reader Problem

Whenever I click on a pdf link on a site, I get an error (screenshot).
If I right-click and select 'Open Link' then the files open OK.
Any ideas?

that happened to me earlier for a while, i then clicked okay. nothing happened. then i went to Start > All Programs > Adobe Reader and it opened fine. I restarted the browser and tried again and it worked fine. Try it?

Thanks a lot. That worked!
I wonder what that's all about?

Sounds like file association problem. Use windows explorer to check the file association for .pdf.

Thanks, but it's not that. As I said, if I right-clicked and did 'open link' everything was OK.
Anyway, andythecurefan's solution worked, so all's well.

Hello Imacken,

When I get this, I click on OK, and then sometimes will need to also refresh that webpage again for it to display the PDF file.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Yep, same for me. I can click on OK, then refresh the page, and everything is OK.

Glad to hear it Imacken. Seems that there is still a minor bug with Adobe Reader and Windows 7.

I had this problem until I removed acrobat reader 9.1 and installed version 8. None of the tricks (including those on this page) seemed to work. The funny thing is it worked a few times before and just quit for whatever reason. Anyway I now get the error shown.

But then everything works fine after I hit ok. I can live with that.
