Adobe Illustrator file


Hello Philip.
Try a special program Illustrator Fix Toolbox https://www.fixtoolbox.com/illustratorfix.html
If it couldn't aid you:
1) Open the preferences file and look for the entry named "enableContentRecovery", change the value from 0 to 1. This turns on the feature.
2) Launch Illustrator and choose "File>Open". Select the file from which you wish to recover the roundtrip information.
3) Click "OK" .

Error "the application is being terminated because of memory corruption"


When you exit Acrobat 7, Acrobat returns the error message,"the application is being terminated because of memory corruption."

Solutions

Do one of the following solutions:

Solution 1: Install the Acrobat 7.0.8 update.

If you have Acrobat 7.0, choose Help > Check For Updates Now to install the update. Alternately, you can download the update from the Adobe website at www.adobe.com/downloads/ .

Solution 2: Remove the files from theAcrobat Organizer folder.

When you remove files from the Acrobat Organizer folder, you force Acrobat to rebuild the Organizer database. This process replaces any damaged files in the Organizer that may be causing the error message.

To remove the files from the Acrobat Organizer folder:

1.Choose Start > Run.

2.In the Open text box, type:%UserProfile%\Application Data\Adobe\Acrobat\7.0\Organizer70.


3.Delete or move all filesfrom this directory.

Solution3: Remove the files from the Updaterfolder.

You may receive this error message after a failed update, indicating that the files in the Updater folder are corrupted.

To remove the files from the Updater folder:

1. Choose Start > Run.

2. In the Open text box, type:%UserProfile%\Application Data\Adobe\Acrobat\7.0\Updater.

3. Delete or move all the files fromthis directory.

Why won't attachments open


There are a few reasons why the attachment might not open and appear correctly:

* You might have problems viewing an attachment if your browser is not properly configured to view that type of file. Usually, the easiest solution is to upgrade your browser to the most recent version:

Download the Firefox browser at:

http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/

Download the Internet Explorer browser at:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/down...

* If you're having trouble reading an Adobe PDF file, you'll need to install the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which allows you to open and read these types of files. For more information, visit:

http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat

* You might also have problems viewing an attachment if it was sent in an unreadable "encoding type." When a message is sent, the sender might be able to choose an encoding type. If possible, the sender should use MIME encoding.

Help with PDF Documents Some documents on Maine.gov are provided in PDF format. In order to view or print PDF documents, you need the free Adobe Reader. Generally, you will find an alternative format is also provided for the document, such as Microsoft Word, HTML, or plain text. If you cannot access a document in PDF format and there is no alternative version, please contact the agency or contact the Maine.gov webmaster for assistance.
Adobe PDF-to-HTML Online Conversion Tool
We've provided solutions for some common PDF issues below.
General Tips: Problem 1: Blank Page in Browser You have selected to download a file and you receive a blank page with a "Done" message at the bottom of the browser. This may be because you do not have enough space in your temporary internet file folder to complete the download.
Solution: Internet Explorer: Tools> Internet Options> Temporary Internet Files> select Delete Files
Netscape: Edit> Preferences> Under Category on the left Advanced> Cache> click Clear Memory Cache
Problem 2: Blank Page "%PDF" You received an error message containing "% PDF" or you have received a blank page while trying to download. This is due to a problem with your web browser not opening .pdf documents correctly.
Solution: Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0: Edit> Preferences> General> Options> Web Browser Options> make sure the Display PDF in Browser box is not checked.
Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 and newer: Edit > Preferences > Internet > make sure the Display PDF in Browser box is not checked.
Problem 3: "Error Locating Object Handler" You receive an error message that says "Error Locating Object Handler" while trying to download a document. This is because there is a dependency with a plug-in for Adobe Acrobat while using Internet Explorer.
Solution: Please go to the following website for detailed instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q262213
Problem 4: Unable to Print You have successfully downloaded the pdf, can view it on your computer screen but are unable to print. This is due to a post script error with your printer.
Solution: In any Acrobat Reader program: File > Print > check the Print As Image box > OK
Problem 5: "Adobe Reader could not open file" You received the error message "Adobe Reader could not open 'filename.pdf'" because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been corrupted (for example, it was sent as an email attachment and wasn't correctly decoded).
Solution: Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0: Edit> Preferences> Internet> make sure the Display PDF in Browser box is not checked.

Cant open pdf


Make sure only adobe 9 is the only version of adobe reader you have installed on that computer. Then go to where your PDF file is and right click on it with the mouse and go into properties.

In the general tab where it says type of file it will show you what program is opening up the PDF file. Click on the change button and where it says recommended programs see if Adobe reader is there, if its not then down below where it says other programs click on the down arrow and see if adobe reader shows up there. If it shows up in either section then choose it, then click on apply, and then click on okay.

Now if for some reason adobe reader doesn't show up in either section, then you'll need to browse for it. It normally installs itself in the program files folder, then double-click on it and go into the adobe folder, Adobe 9.0 and then the reader folder. The name of the reader program looks something like acrord32 and it will say application to the right of it. At that point choose it and apply the changes so it opens up with Adobe reader.

This should cover everything, if your still having problems, let me know and I'll help you out further.

When I open an attachment-pdf for instance. or any attachment for that matter. The windows media player opens, with an error message saying it cannot open this type file. is this an adobe reader problem


Sounds like your files are not assigned to the correct program.

Open Windows Explorer and find a pdf file.

Right click on it and choose Open With...

Select Adobe Reader and check the box at the bottom that says:

Always use the selected program to open this kind of file.

Click OK.

All pdf files should then open in Adobe.

You can do the same with any other type of file by choosing the program you want to open it with.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Adobe reader error message


It is possible that somewhere along the line adobe reader became conflicted with an update from something else ect.

First thing you should try is uninstalling adobe reader completely in add/remove programs. Then Install the latest version of adobe reader.

This should put an end to the error messages and restore functionality to normal.

Post back if you need any further help.Thank you for choosing Fixya!

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.
