When I open a file on a particular web site I get

When I open PDF files on a particular web site I get a 'file damaged' message (also get that when I download files from Web Site and then try and read). I have now discovered all people using XP get same problem but all using Vista can read same files with no problem. Any ideas what is wrong or what I might try to narrow down the cause?
The offending files were WORD Docs converted to PDF using three different free file converters and loaded via Filezilla.

Further investigation has shown I can read files on the same web site that were converted using full Adobe and a Vista operating system.

Have you tried to update your Adobe from their website? Could solve the problem. Could also be a problem when you loaded them from Filezilla. Under properties on the file, maybe selecting the version of program you want to open it could help.

PDF file cannot be opened


Try another PDF file program, such as Foxit Reader, to see it it can open. If the same error occurs, the file is probably no good.

Pdf file cannot open


What version of Reader are you using? Some newer .pdf files ure using formatting codes that older versions of Reader cannot decipher and thus fail to open. Older files will still read regardless of the version of reader. Ensure you have the most recent version of Reader and try again.

Trouble Opening PDF files in Firefox 8


Could be you need the latest Adobe pdf file reader on your computer to open the files. Software can be such a PIA. Can also be because you are using firefox 8, a real old version of the browser. Update the browser!

If you have the same operating system, same internet explorer version (from any page click the help button on top of page and select "about internet explorer" to see), and same version of Adobe reader then you might consider running a virus scan. I.E is a target for malware.

A try download a particular pdf file but each time after i download it, i get this reply when i try open it 'pdf file damaged and cannot be repaired' what exactly is d cause?


May be the file is actually damaged, or may be your PDF Reader is actually damaged.
First try to download the PDF file from different source(s) and then try opening that file.
If it doesn't work, go for different PDF Readers. Like you may try the Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader to open that file.

1. Download Adobe Reader 10.0 here
2. Download Foxit Reader 4.3 here

I cannot download or open any msi file type.


It just, no application can open that file so windows is suggesting to search for application to open/run that kind of files. Say example you have pdf file and you don't have adobe reader or application that can open pdf format it will flag that kind of message for you to be able to view/run it.

Hope it helps.

Adobe reader error message


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.
