Adobe 7.0 problem

By Jim Giles ·
In previous versions of Adobe Reader (6.0) you could hyperlink to a PDF file from Microsoft Word.

When we loaded Adobe Reader 7.0 you can create the link to a PDF file but it will not open and there is no error message. The hour glass comes up for a few seconds and then you are left in the word document.

Is this a problem of software combatibily or do I need to configure Microsoft or Adobe to work with hyperlinking?

The hyperlink option is being used extensively through out my organization.

Thank you for any answers you may have.
