Seems like you have problem with versions.
which version of acrobat you have installed?
is it the reader?
which error message is displayed?
The Delete Temporary Internet Files fix usually resolves the 'wrong file type' issue.

Delete the Temporary Internet Files cache used by the MSIE browser.
Close all web browser windows.
Right-Click on the "Internet Explorer" icon (large lower-case blue 'e') visible on the desktop.
Choose "Properties" and make sure the first tab, "General" is selected.
Click the middle "Delete Files" button (see dialog box as shown below) and then wait as long as necessary for the computer to clean up. (The first time will take a few minutes on some computers, succeeding cycles are usually much quicker.)
Return to the web site and try clicking on the .pdf document link again.
Repeat as necessary.


You can also try alternative Software.

More and more often, the free Foxit PDF Reader is being recommended as an lightweight and capable alternative to Adobe's various Reader editions.

Hello,

Please make sure you have the newest Acrobat Reader from www.adobe.com

direct link: http://get.adobe.com/reader/?promoid=BUIGO

That should allow you to open them

Have a great day.

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

Suddenly all my pdf docs are opening in Adobe reader instead of Acrobat Pro. Even the Acrobat.exe file in my C:Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat 7.0\Acrobat folders opens Adobe reader instead of Acrobat...


Go to My Computer. Tools > Folder Options > File Types > Then Browse PDF Registered File Type . If you can see " Details for PDF extension " and you can see a change button, you can click that button and browse for your Acrobat Pro main program .

Unable to download pdf file


Uninstall all Adobe software what ever version you have, than go to start>search>all files and folders, select local hard drive if it is not, than click more advanced options, select first three things in the list and than type adobe in All or parts of the file name. When it finds folders and files select them all and press DELETE. Than empty your Recycle Bean and restart your computer once it is up download new Adobe installation file and install it again. I know that this is pain but you will have to get rid of all damaged files used by adobe reader.
