Web browser opens PDF files with Acrobat 6.0 instead of Reader 9.0
Posted on 2010-08-19
We have a Windows XP workstation that has Adobe Reader 9 and Adobe Acrobat 6 installed. Reader 9 is set to open PDF files from the local machine ie when the user double clicks on a PDF file on his desktop, the file opens using Reader 9.
However, when he tries to view a PDF file on IE, it tries to open the PDF file using Acrobat 6. I am not sure how to configure the browser to open the PDF file using Reader and not Acrobat.
Any ideas would be greatly appriciated. BTW, we can't uninstall Acrobat 6 to upgrade, funding is not available right at the moment.
