In Internet Explorer, when you click on a link to a pdf file,
you get the error message “Adobe Reader could not open ‘filename.fdf’ because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been corrupted.”


This error is due to an issue with Adobe Acrobat viewing PDF files in a web browser.
Try the following:

1. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options and on the General tab to erase all temporary files, cookies and history data.
2. Under Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options, on the General tab click on Settings and make sure you select the option “Automatically” for checking for newer versions of the stored pages. Then attempt to open the PDC file again.
3. If solutions 1 and 2 do not work then uninstall Adobe Acrobat, then reinstall it again.
It seems that Acrobat 6 is more prone to this error so upgrading to Acrobat 7 may solve the problem.

All d best.

Any furthur help feel free to ask me again i will be more than happy to assist you.

Uninstall Adobe reader and download it again from http://www.adobe.com/support/ if that is not where you got it the first time. Those icons and messages all indicate a virus or malware so go to Windows update and ensure that you have their free malware removal toll installed and do a full system virus scan. Steve

It is possible that somewhere along the line adobe reader became conflicted with an update from something else ect.

First thing you should try is uninstalling adobe reader completely in add/remove programs. Then Install the latest version of adobe reader.

This should put an end to the error messages and restore functionality to normal.

Viewing pdf files on internet


Uninstall Adobe Reader, shut down completely for at least 30 seconds, and then restart.
This releases "Locked files" for deletion.
Then do a search for "Adobe", in 'all files and folders' - search with the options "Search system folders", "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search subfolders" checked. Delete all of those files found.
You should do this search and delete whenever you un-install any programs. It will remove lots and lots of leftover junk files and corrupted files taking up room on your hard drive. It will also give you a "clean install" when you reinstall or install an updated program. (Do this ESPECIALLY when updating to a NEW anti-virus programs and “Internet Security Suite” programs such as McAfee or Norton etc.)
BEFORE RE-INSTALLING Printmaster
Download and install "Registry Mechanic" then do the updates prior to running it and removing anything for the first time. This will get rid of all your current Registry errors, prior to installing or reinstalling. Go to the Adobe website and install the newest Adobe Reader 8.1 program.

Try printing then scanning the PDF.

(Or spend the money to install Adobe Acrobat -- and I do not mean just the READER program)

 

I have no clue about your "error message displayed is saying that the documents contain renderable files."
