Adobe Reader 7
Windows 7
Internet Explorer 8

I have a user who is trying to open PDFs through their IE8 web browser but the document wont open. Displayed is a time out message. Other users are able to open the pdf on the site so i know what the pdf does exist.

does anyone know how to resolve this? Is there a setting in IE to stop/allow pdfs? I hvae tried adding the site as a https site but no luck.

Thanks

I would suggest having them open the Adobe Reader software once outside of IE.  We found on our network that the first time you run a new version of Adobe Reader, it wants you to agree to the Terms and Conditions before it will fully execute.

Incidentally, it would also be highly recommended to upgrade to the current version of Adobe Reader, which addresses a number of security issues.
