Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

Looking for Acrobat Reader 5.0.5

Trying to use The Best of Fine Homebuilding program. The disc came with Acrobat 5.0.5 on it, but it is not working. What to do? If I am able to download a more recent version, how do I get it to work with the FHB disk?

I have Adobe Reader 8 installed, but this is apparently not what the FHB software is looking for.

I cannot open files on my computer that require them to be open by adobe which I have on both my laptops. The files save then you have to open them with a program but it trys to open with word which does...


I assume that you mean Adobe Acrobat reader. First of all make sure that you already have installed this program. Go at start - programs - and browse all programs to locate that Adobe Acrobat Reader existing. A good idea is to open it in order to check that it's fully working. In case of a problem download it from this official link. Since you are sure for the Acrobat Reader's existence, right click at any pdf file (these type of files open with Acrobat Reader) - choose open with - go at the bottom of the new window "choose program" - at the new window select Adobe Acrobat Reader (in case it is not available click on browse and navigate at the C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader x.x\Reader, select the file AcroRd32, hit open - check the box for "open this kind of files always with the same program" - hit OK and you are ready. From now on every time you will double click at a pdf file the Acrobat Reader will open this file.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Trial version of adobe acrobat 9, how to install again?


Are you trying to install the full version of Acrobat 9 or are you installing Acrobat Reader 9.
If you want the latest Acrobat Reader then go to the Acrobat WEB site to download, it is a freeware program.

I keep getting messages ..could not find acrobat External windows handler; . brand is e machines ..error messages,,


Hi Kate1958. I found this for you. Do one or more of the following solutions:
Solution 1: Remove all versions of Acrobat or Reader, and then reinstall one version.
If multiple versions of Acrobat or Reader are installed on the system, remove all versions and then install only one version. See the documentation included with Windows for information about removing programs.
Note: If you need to have multiple versions of an Acrobat product installed, remove all versions and then reinstall them starting with the earliest, installing the latest version last.
Solution 2: Start Acrobat or Reader, and then open the PDF file in the web browser.
If an error occurs when you try to start Acrobat or Reader, refer to Related Documents below, or search the Adobe Support Knowledgebase:
-- If you use Acrobat, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrobat.html .
-- If you use Reader, go to www.adobe.com/support/products/acrreader.html .
Solution 3: Make sure that the External Window Handler file (ewh32.api) is in the Plug-ins folder.
If this file is missing, reinstall Acrobat or Adobe Reader.
The default location of the Plug-ins folder is:
-- For Acrobat: Program FilesAdobeAcrobat [version]Acrobat
-- For Reader: Program FilesAdobeAcrobat [version]Reader
Solution 4: Disable Web Browser Integration.
Disable Web Browser Integration so that PDF files open directly in Acrobat or Reader instead of in the web browser.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 6.0.x -7.0.x or Reader 6.0.x -7.0.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Reader.
2. Choose Edit > Preferences > Internet.
3. Deselect Display PDF in Browser.
4. Click OK.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 5.x or Acrobat Reader 5.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.
2. Choose Edit > Preferences > General.
3. Click Options in the list in the Preferences dialog box.
4. Deselect Display PDF in Browser.
5. Click OK.
To disable Web Browser Integration in Acrobat 4.x or Acrobat Reader 4.x:
1. Open Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.
2. Choose File > Preferences > General.
3. Deselect Web Browser Integration in the General Preferences dialog box.
4. Click OK.
I hope this helps. Please dont forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast-free support today. Thank you :D

I am unable to open Micrografx Windows Draw 6. I used it for clip art but now it won't open.


Hello, I had the same problem. windows draw has been working for years under Windows XP then suddenly impossible. I think there is a conflict with others programs i installed.
I found THE solution after reading many topics on the net :
Install acrobat reader 4 on your system. Then run acrobat reader 4. Last, run Micrografx windows draw 6 while acrobat reader 4 is running on your system too.
Maybe it works with a more recent version of acrobat reader but i didn't try. Maybe this solution works also with windows draw 5 but i didn't try.
Enjoy

Cannot use reader 8.0,cannot remove it or install 9.0


oddly enough, you may find that updating the version 8.0 you have to 8.x will then allow you to remove it (or it will work correctly) can you open the reader manually in the programs list? if so open it, then go to help and check for updates. apply the updates. If they work you should be in good shape.

Acrobat.com won't let me uninstall


It's installed as part of Adobe Air or Acrobat Reader 9 upgrade. Try these steps to manually remove acrobat.com, which most people don't realize they are installing because Adobe went the route of SPYWARE. - http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/407/kb407354.html
