Question about Adobe Acrobat 6.0 for PC

1 Answer

Unable to download pdf file

With a considerable version of adobe acrobat reader, I am unable to download or even open pdf files from the internet.
I can still open pdf files that has been previously saved (or downloaded from another pc), but I cannot download a pdf file with this computer. This is a pentium 4 Acer travelmate 270 laptop, I waited for some time when I was trying to download a pdf file on this computer considering that our broadband connection run between 24 to 54 mbps and with a pentium 4 processor. Yet, I was unable to. I tried it a few times again, but has still the same problem.

what actions can be done on this matter? was there a glitch on installing the software? To tell everyone honestly, i really don't know the reason because I haven't modified the pertinent softwares on this computer or reinstalled adobe acrobat reader. I noticed this problem when I tried to download pdf files a couple of weeks ago because I don't download pdf files with this computer but only open pdf files with it, considering its processor's speed. I cannot tell if this has been a problem long time ago because it was just its initial pdf downloading activity a few weeks ago. This is not the case with our other home pc. I can read and download pdf files with it even with a adobe acrobat version 5 only. Now I'm consulting this to everyone to check in this case as soon as possible.

thank you so much!

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    people, RoadCrasher did it again!

    the only difference was, because I immediately need an acrobat reader and this poor laptop has been running in exhaustion because of my technical demands, I only installed version 5 that requires less space and did a little configurations with it.

    it's, as the site's cliche goes---FIXYA!

    super megariffic thanks!
    so you guys out there, i recommend you to roadcrasher (haha, especially when my abilities won't be able to handle your needs yet). RoadCrasher has 'crashed' 2 problems i just posted in less than 5 hours of me being online.
    too much testimonies huh? hey hey hey, second2dlast is still around here. so roadcrasher, 'don't forget me when you're in paradise'. haha. thank you again!
    whoa must download, download, download!

    I am having Adobe Acrobat 6.0 version installed on my PC. For some time I am unable to open .Pdf files or unable to down load .pdf files from internet.

    Please advise.

  • kakaboyz Aug 26, 2008

    download of pdf file from the internet has begun and the display box indicates that the file is being downloaded but download does not complete. The download stops short of the total amount to be downloaded. For example, if the pdf file to be downloaded is 780 mb, the download stops at around 778.35 and thats it. I then perform task manager and the messsage appears: not responding.

    Please help.

    Thanks

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.

Hi! This is Adeel Saleem. I downloadde Adobe Acrobat 70 Professional Pro from the internet. It was successfully installed. Now whenever I open any PDF file, It says that you cannot use it till you...


Hello there,

This is because the version you have installed requires a license key to activate and you need to purchase one. However, if you just wanted to view and open PDF files, you can just download Adobe Reader from the list below which does not require you any license key.

Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa. Merry Christmas!

What is acrobat reader?


Adobe Acrobat is a family of computer programs developed by Adobe Systems, designed to view, create, manipulate and manage files in Adobe's

Plug-in from Adobe. It reads documents in PDF format on any platform.


A program from Adobe that lets you capture a document and then view it in its original format and appearance


Adobe has changed the names of the products in the Acrobat family regularly, also splitting-up, joining, or discontinuing products. Between version 3 and 5, Standard and Professional versions were one product simply called Adobe Acrobat.
As of October 2009[update], the current main members of the Adobe Acrobat family are:
64px-adobe_reader.svg.png magnify-clip.pngAdobe Reader 8/9 Icon
  • Adobe Reader 9 (Windows, Mac and Unix)
  • Adobe Acrobat 9 (Windows & Mac only; no Unix version)
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended (includes Adobe Presenter)

The latest version
Version 9.0 Adobe Acrobat 9.0 was released July 2008:[10][11]
  • PDF version 1.7 (and prior) supported. There are Adobe extensions to PDF 1.7 for Acrobat 9.
  • Product Family includes: Acrobat Standard 9 (Windows only), Acrobat Pro 9, Acrobat Pro Extended 9 (Windows only).
  • Pro Extended Version includes Adobe Presenter and the features of Acrobat 3D.
  • The ability to create Acroforms was restored to Acrobat Standard in this release (in versions 6 through 8, Acrobat Professional was required).
  • Enable real-time collaboration of PDFs with synchronized document views and chat.
  • Improved Web Capture for capturing entire web pages or just some parts into PDF.
  • Integration with acrobat.com to enable storage and sharing of PDF files.
  • Personalize a PDF Portfolio with customizable templates for navigation and branding.
  • Compare and highlight the differences between two versions of a PDF document.
  • Insert FLV (Flash) or H.264 video for direct playback in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.
  • Convert a variety of video formats to FLV for playback in PDF.
  • Create PDF maps by importing geospatial files that retain metadata and coordinates.
  • OCR PDFs (Paper Capture) using ClearScan. Adobe ClearScan technology creates custom Type1-CID fonts to match the visual appearance of a scanned document after optical character recognition (OCR). ClearScan does not replace the fonts with your system fonts or substitute them by Type1-MM (as in Acrobat 8 and earlier versions), but uses these newly created custom fonts. The custom fonts are embedded in the PDF file (this is obviously mandatory). If the OCR does not recognize a word with enough confidence, then the image (bitmap) of the word is shown in the PDF and the text is put above but hidden (same as what is made in "Searchable Image" mode).
  • Adobe Reader 9 drops support for Adobe Reader Extensions 5 and 6 which permit Adobe Reader client software to save changes to filled-in forms in PDFs. Adobe Reader Extensions 6.1 and newer are still supported. Legacy PDFs will still be viewable, however they will open with the warning "This document enables Reader capabilities that are no longer enabled in this Reader version."[12]
  • On March 10, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1 was released which addresses a number of customer workflow issues and a critical security vulnerability while providing more stability.[13]
  • On May 12, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[14]
  • On June 9, 2009, update version 9.1.2 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[15]
  • On July 31, 2009, update version 9.1.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[16]
  • On October 14, 2009, Adobe Acrobat 9.2 was released (added support for Windows 7 x86/x64 and fixed many security issues).[17]
  • On January 12, 2010, Adobe Reader 9.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[18]
  • On February 16, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[19]
  • On April 13, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.2 was released which addresses several critical security vulnerabilities.[20]

My system has adobe 9.1 but when i want to open some pdf it still says version 8 or 9 required


It sounds like you may have more than one version of Adobe Reader and/or Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer (not recommended) and the system is probably confused about which one to use when opening a .pdf document.
Right-click any .pdf file located on your system, and then, click Open With and then click Choose Default Program.
15f277b.jpg

In the window that opens, select the program that you want your system to use when you open a .pdf file (in your case it should be Adobe Reader 9.1). It *should* be listed under the Recommended Programs section but if it is not then you will need to use the Browse button in order to located Adobe Reader on your system. If the correct program is already selected, then I suggest you unselect it and then reselect it. Make sure the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" check-box is checked. Then hit the OK button.
As stated earlier, it is not recommended (and not supported) for you to have more than one version of Adobe Reader installed at a time. You should do the following if the above solution does not work for you:
In Windows, go to Start Button > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a program
Look through the list of your installed programs for Adobe Acrobat and/or Adobe Reader. Uninstall them both (if you have more than one installed) then download and run the Microsoft Installer Cleanup Utility to remove all traces of Acrobat Reader.
Now re-install your latest version of Acrobat Reader only.

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.
