My application is working fine all most all the machines.
But, on one machine, when IE is supposed to open a pdf file, its giving error. A blank page is coming.
That machine has IE5.5 and Acrobat Reader 4.0.
Its an internet applicatiion.
I believe, its the mime type which is not correctly setup on that machine. Please let me know, if you know how to see the mime type in Internet Explorer.

Thanks!!!

It may just need Acrobat Reader installed again.  It could be about timing.  If the browser has been updated after AR was installed then that might wreck it.  I do not know if AR installs a file like Flash et c. but if it does then it will need to be in "Windows\Downloaded Program Files" (assuming it's a Windows machine).  The installation of AR will put all the necessary files in th eright places.

If that doesn't help then try removing AR first and then reinstalling.
