Adobe Reader X and IE9 PDF Viewer Compatibility Issue

Please be advised that a number of Users have reported issues with opening PDF files when Adobe Reader X and Internet Explorer 9 are installed on their systems.

Adobe Systems has acknowledged this as a known issue and is looking into a resolution.   Below is an excerpt posted by Adobe in a recent forum discussion on this matter and suggestions for opening PDF files.


"... Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 was released after development for Adobe Reader X was complete.  While we made every effort to anticipate the way the final release version of IE9 would behave, our PDF viewer plugin is not yet compatible with IE9. This is being worked on by our engineering department. In the interim, when trying to open a PDF file from the browser, save it locally to your computer and open it directly in Adobe Reader.


Moving forward, please continue to install updates to Adobe Reader X as they become available.  When this issue has been resolved, it will be pushed via an update.


Thank you,
