How to download URIs

By doug ·
When I click on a link in one of your PDF documents, I get a message "The plug-in required by this 'URI' action is not available."

What do I need to do to enable the downloads?

Would be available from Adobe. Is there an Install on Demand setting you can turn on in Acrobat? Try enabling Install on Demand (other) in Internet Explorer Properties in the Advanced tab.

Adobe already loaded

by doug In reply to Plug-in

I think it is obvious from my question that I have Adobe Reader loaded, and it is the latest version.

A search of Adobe Reader knowledgebase for anything with "uri" finds nothing.

Has anyone ever downloaded from a URI?

IE doesn't have an "Automatically download" option in Advanced, but, regardless of that, IE isn't started because WIndows, Adobe, doesn't know what to do with a URI.

1> Adobe does not make the only PDF reader, but I made that assumption. Because you have the latest version does not mean you have the appropriate plug-in.

2> That would be 'Install On Demand'. I don't know anything about 'Automatically Download'.

A URI is a group of which URL is a subset.

"Adobe already loaded" could mean a lot of things. Try un-installing and re-installing Adobe Reader, and make sure it mentions and includes the plug-in for your browser.

It sounds like that's the piece that's missing - the browser plug-in. Success on save-and-open means that Reader is OK; it's just that the browser doesn't know how to launch it and pass it the incoming file. That's what the plug-in does.

Still not clear Doug,

IE would have to be started unless you are using another browser.

What is the page you're trying to download?

Adobe doesn't understand what a URI is.

by doug In reply to Still not clear Doug,

I open this page

It opens in whichever browser I have set up as default, and I've tried IE, Firefox, Opera, and I've also saved the page locally, started Adobe Reader and opened the page.
The page opens correctly each time. However, when I click on a download line, eg #4 Infra Recorder, I get an error because Adobe doesn't know what to do with a URI.

The link opens

by ComputerCookie In reply to Adobe doesn't understand ...

I used Opera to do this, not sure what your problem is, are you sure it's not a firewall problem?

Thanks for the link

by doug In reply to The link opens

Thanks. That link opens. Unfortunately Adobe doesn't tell me the contents of the link. It just gives an error.
I've downloaded that file now, but I still have the URI problem for any other link.
Do you know the actual code within the PDF file?
