What file are you trying to open? adobe reader only opens documents in pdf and adobe format. when opening a program, right click then choose "open with" option, and select the appropriate program to open the file with. most of them open with internet explorer or ms word.

Pdf file is not openinig in my sony vaio


Hi,
If you don't have Adobe Reader, then download it from the Adobe website ( www.adobe.com ).
If you have Adobe Reader, and the file does not open because Windows does not know with what program you can open the file, do this:
a) Right click on the file you need to open.
b) Click on Properties and then click Change...
When you've changed the opening program for the file, it should work.
If it still does not work, then try reinstalling Adobe Reader.
If the problem will still be there, try scanning your computer for viruses with Microsoft Security Essentials.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

When I download and install adobe, I get adobe reader icons on all my desktop programs, and nothing will open. ALso I can't open PDF files.


Had a problem with Adobe. Not sure what I did, but most of the icons on my desktop looked like an adobe icon. If I clicked on any of the icons like this, including a pdf file, it wouldn't open the file or program. Instead I'd get a warning box that said something like there is no file to support my request. So I removed adobe from my computer using the control panel, and everything worked ok except that I couldn't open a PDF file. I reloaded Adobe reader 9.0, and had the same problem again, so I again removed Adobe from my computer, and did a restore and now everything seems to work fine. Oh, by the way, I have Vista Home Basic as my operating system.

Try updating your Quick Office program. Or, look for a Quick Adobe program reader. Look for software that can open the file. It could be that the program you were previously using to open pdf files bugged down.
