Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 doesn't launch correctly when trying to open a saved PDF
Posted on 2003-11-04
I am trying to get Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 and OS 10.2.8 to play well together, and I need some help.
I have a few PDF documents saved to my desktop. When I double-click on one to open it, and Reader is NOT open, the Reader icon bounces briefly on the dock and then goes away. A general error message is displayed ('Acrobat Reader has quit unexpectedly.', or something along those terms).
If I open Reader up on it's own (ie - before I try to open a PDF document), it displays the splash screen and goes through the normal startup process. Once Reader is open, I can double-click on PDF files and open them without problem or error.
