Adobe Reader opens PDFs in Win7, but not WinXP
Posted on 2013-01-07
Good afternoon everybody. I am having an issue opening up certain PDF files in XP. I double click the file and it doesn't seem to respond at all. I figured it might have been an issue with the file being corrupted, but I went to a Windows 7 box and it worked just fine (both OS's use the same edition of Adobe Reader). I also tried opening the file through reader (opening the program, hitting the open folder button, etc.) and it came up with an error stating "...The above name is invalid.". I renamed the file in Windows 7 and then proceeded to try and open it in XP, and it worked just fine. Is there a way to fix this issue that is not manually renaming each file?
P.S. The PDFs in question are located on a file server....maybe a permissions issue? Also, Adobe Acrobat 9 does the same thing as Reader...
Thanks in advance guys!
