Application exe

By marmstrong ·
When I click on a pdf file the application won't open. I must first open Acrobat Reader 5 and open the target file from the file menu. I recently downloaded AR 5 but something didn't load correctly?

1. Acrobat 5 does not work well with Windows 95.
If you are running 95, I suggest that you stick with version 4.

2. If you are running 98 or newer, un-install and re-install Acrobat 5.
Make sure to answer yes if you are asked if you want to associate PDF files with Acrobat.

If you still have problems, look at your file associations, and make sure that .pdf files are not associated with some other program.
You can find the list from the options menu of Windows Explorer.
Just click onthe file types tab.

Try removing the file association with pdf and Acrobat then the next time you try and open a pdf file it asks which program you want to use and if you want to always use that program.

You do not say what OS you are running. If not W9.X you need to be the admin of the machine. Did you have an older ver. on the computer. If so you need to do this. Uninstall AR 5.0 then all others in order backwords.
