Question about Adobe Acrobat 6.0 for PC

1 Answer

Adobe Reader When I try to open an emailed pdf attachement, it opens the Reader browser and then pops up a message saying "this file cannot be opened because it is either not a supported file type or was not correctly decoded or damaged...". I know it's on my end because someone else that was cc'd on the email opened theirs just fine...???

It could be that you have an older version of Adobe Reader. You can download the latest version: CLICK HERE.

hi,
have you the last update of the reader ?
one thing you can try if you have an hotmail or gmail account, its to load the pdf to your online drive, and then go to your account, go to the same folder and open it selecting read on-line (on-line readers are always up to date !) if that way it doesn't work too, your file is damaged !

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.

Alternatively, you can right-click on the link to the PDF file and select: "Save As." Then you can open the file at your leisure, and keep a copy of it for later, if you like, or print it.

Adobe 7.0.8 cant uninstall or update, can't download PDF in web browsers


Gem7 again, I just posted my last comment about 15 minutes ago but thought I should say I also just tried to install the 7.0.9 version as recommended on the Adobe website because of the security problem facing the old version I have (7.0.8). It came up with a message saying "Error 1714. The older version of Adobe Reader 7.0.9 cannot be removed contact your technical support group." Same as what I said happened in my last post when I tried upgrading to the 8.1.2 version! The last time I used Adobe according to my control panel was in 15/5/2006, so almost 2 years ago now since I've had this problem so I can't restore my system to an earlier date because I haven't saved any system restore points prior to this date. I don't know what else to try, can anyone please help? Thanks Gem.

Ans: Click Start go to control Panel Click addorremove Option next you see more softwares list chek adobe acrobat reader then click remove then your UnInstall y or no geting this messege click yes click next remove copleted
Successfully next Restart computer you install new version okkkk
