Unable to Launch Abobe Reader in Internet Explorer
Some versions of Internet Explorer may encounter problems launching Adobe Reader. This may be exhibited by an error message or by encountering only a blank screen when you try to open the file. Two suggested ways around the problem are:
Save the File and Open it Manually in the Adobe Reader
Right click on the file link and select "Save target as ..". When prompted, select a location and name for the file, and click OK. The file will be downloaded. You can then use the Adobe Reader to view or print the file.
Set Up the Adobe Reader as a Helper Application
To configure the Adobe Reader 4.0x as a helper application, do the following:
1. Open the Acrobat 4.0x Reader.
2. Choose File > Preferences > General.
3. Deselect Web Browser Integration in the Options section and then click OK.
4. Exit the Acrobat 4.0x Reader.
5. Restart your browser and try the link again.
The next time the link to the PDF file is selected, a dialog box will ask what to do with the file. If "Open this file from its current location" is selected, the PDF will be opened in a new window. If "Save this file to disk" is selected, the PDF file is saved in the specified location, from where it can be opened later.
