Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
When I try to open .pdf files in reader ver 8.0 the program forces me to save the file somewhere before I can read it or print it. This has only happened since I upgraded at Adobe's insistance. This is a real pain having to save the file, go to the new location and open it, and then back to where I was to start with.
I can find nothing on Adobe's site about this. I tried to uninstall the reader program and then reinstall it without sucess. The ver 8.0 works normal on my Vista laptop, the problem is on my XP desktop.
Thanks for your help.
While I can't tell you why adobe 8 wants to save files before reading or printing, I can suggest that you try again to go to:
control panel in XP
pick adobe 8 and uninstall it
If you still have the older version installed try to see if it works now. You may need to restart pc to get it working.
If not then uninstall all versions or READER you may have.
Now go to ADOBE.COM and install VERSION 9, the latest, and try it out. Its best to go directly to the site from your browser rather than follow links of dubious origins.
If it STILL won't work right for you, then try the following.
Go to the link below and install the older version of READER that you liked. Its a fine website with OLDER versions of many programs.
Good luck Jim, and I beg you please don't vote for me unless I was able to FIXYA!
