Error Messages:


Iam running windows 98se my browser is internet explorer 6sp1 pack. when I start reading my paper then i click on a link that needs to be downloaded from the news paper web page it triggers the acrobat reader but it doesn`t download the link? It takes it for ever and then i get an error message saying that there was an I/O problem and that it has timed out. Now the funny part is that I installed the Netscape browser 7.02 and it downloads it from the same news paper site?

Hi,

Check Internet Explorer's ActiveX settings, you may have disabled some of them.

What are your settings in  Acrobat under menu edit/preferences/options... are your top four boxes ticked?

In fact are all the boxes ticked, if not, do it.

You may have to get windows to associate your pdf files with Acrobat. The easiest way is to re-install Acrobat.
