Thread: PDF Won't Open

  1. #1

    PDF Won't Open

    The other day I received two password protected adobe acrobat pdf files from a friend. At home, using Linux, I'm able to open and view them without any problems.

    So that same night, when I went to work using Win2K, I wanted to print them, when I tried opening the pdf files using acrobat 7.0, it kept telling me the pdf files where either bad files or the wrong file format.

    Does anybody know what could be causing this error message or how I can print the files?

    Thnx.

    What version of Acrobat does your friend have? I've heard of password-protect issues when using different versions.

    I'm not sure which version he's using but he is using Win2000 also. He will be sending me the files in another format that I will be able to print.

    Just odd, good ole windows software is having a problem with this!

    Only if password protection is enabled. Try downgrading your Acrobat Reader?
