I'm not able to open PDF documents directly from web browser/internet site directly with latest version of Adobe Acrobat 9.3,  instead when I Open *.PDF from web browser/internet site directly it is opening with adobe in new window.

I have added following registry entry  to my package

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\9.0\Originals]
'bBrowserIntegration'=dword:00000000

(also verified this which the otherway  to modify the registry EDIT -> PREFFERENCES -> INTERNET -> and Uncheck (UnTick) “Display PDF in Browser” Option.)

Your suggestion are much appreciated  

Thanks,
Siddram

Hi Siddram,
I have the same version (Adobe Reader 9.3)  and it works well opening Adobe PDF files inside the current MS IE web page.

Just for your info, settings are correctly applied to disply PDF in browser ( "Edit" - "Preferences"  "Internet" -"Display PDF in browser"  is checked)

Regards,
Paolo

In my case

if "Edit" - "Preferences"  "Internet" -"Display PDF in browser"  is checked then getting error and

if EDIT -> PREFFERENCES -> INTERNET ->  “Display PDF in Browser” is Uncheck (UnTick) then pdf file is opening with adobe in new window but not in browser.

If  there any other setting please let me know.

Thanks

Following is the error message when "Display PDF in browser" checked

---------------------------
Adobe PDF Document
---------------------------
The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running can not be used to view PDF files in a Web Browser.
Adobe Acrobat/Reader version 8 or 9 is required.  Please exit and try again.

OK

Try to manually repair the Adobe version 8 installation by going to Help > Repair Acrobat Installation. Then restart Windows and try again.

Hope it helps.

Remove Adobe Reader and install again, usually it works.
