I can't seem to open any PDF documents with IE 7. When I click on a PDF, it opens a new window and says that it cannot display this page.

I install FireFox and the links work properly.

Is there a known issue with IE 7 and Acrobat Reader?

I've reinstalled Acrobat with the latest version (7.0.8 i think)

Thanks!

Greetings, DataDudes !

Are you using Acrobat Standard or Reader?  There no known reason for IE7 and Acrobat not working. Make sure the plugin for Acrobat is enabled in IE7.  Go to Tools > Addon Manager and check Acrobat.

If no joy, you may want to reinstall Acrobat and its latest updates. Make sure plugin for IE is downloaded.

Best wishes!

You should not have Acrobat Reader and Acrobat Standard installed at the same time. This will cause conflict and may be the cause of your problem. Uninstall one of the programs.

i guess the problem is that there is a new version of acrobat so frequently that i don't care to purchase a new version each time it comes out so I can read new documents.

PDF pages don't appear in web browser window (Acrobat 7.0 and 3D, Adobe Reader 7.0)
http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/328233.html

Make sure that AdobePDF.dll is enabled. (Internet Explorer only)
1. Select Tools > Internet Options > Programs (tab) > Manage Add-ons.
2. Set Show to "Add-ons that have been used by Internet Explorer."
3. Find and select Adobe PDF Reader.
4. Make sure Enabled is selected.
