Adobe Reader does not open .pdf

By redinvd ·
A client is running Windows ME with Ram 256, and has 13 gig
unused hard disk space. He tries to view a Adobe .pdf file from a
internet site. His ISP is AOL. His IE is 6.0

When he clicks on the link to open the .pdf, it begins the
download, Adobe Reader Opens, but then he gets a white screen
and nothing happens.

He has set the secutity to low in Internet Options.

Any ideas

Reinstall Acrobat Reader.

There is a corrupt or missing file / registry setting.

On top of that, make sure it's the latest version of Adobe (ver 7).

6.0.1 is the version that Adobe recommends for use with Me.

Start at the Adobe Reader page,

http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html

If you are not on a Me machine at the time, click on the link to choose a different version.

Then download and save the installer.

First reset the web security settings to medium.

The problem may be caused by memory error,adobe reader requires 32mb of memory to function properly,have yet to find solution as to why this problem exist with versions 6.0 or less.

Maybe the file has not been fully written and closed before the explore process grabs it. If that's the issue, introducing a brief delay could solve the problem.

or You can try a popular PDF file recovery tool called Advanced PDF Repair to repair your PDF file. It is a powerful tool to repair corrupt or damaged PDF files.

Detailed information about Advanced PDF Repair can be found at http://www.datanumen.com/apdfr/
