Hello Experts,

We have  some PDF reports generated from .aspx page.  They've been opened just fine from IE9; however, they stop showing up in IE9 now.  I am not sure if there's something changed on IE security or Adobe or Windows Server 2008 R2 that prevent the PDF to show up on IE.  I checked Acrobat Reader Internet options to make sure it shows in browser, etc.  Please advise.  Thanks.

Hi swgit,

Check if you  are able to open any PDFF document in IE?  if not then check  if Adobe Acrobat   reader is enabled in IE settings.

Regards,
Chinmay.

Yes, I can open PDF docs in IE.  The PDF docs just don't show up in IE when generated from aspx.

Alright. Can you try to check if this is working with other machine and/or browser?

it works on other machines and other versions of acrobat reader. if i open internet explorer and open a pdf file, it will open just fine. but when i try to generate a pdf report from internet explorer, the pdf never shows. i tried adding the site to intranet zone, trusted site, allow pop-up, nothing works.

it seems to be a problem with this machine, just don't know what caused it, but we run the same set up and configs on another server and everything works fine. so i'm closing this request
