View Full Version : Sleepy Acrobat

19-08-2004, 09:17 AM
When I click a highlight on a web page that requires my Acrobat Reader to open, I get varied results.
Commonly nothing happens.
Sometimes the Acrobat logo screen appears briefly and then switches off.
Sometimes Acrobat Reader will start and work as expected.
Once Acrobat Reader has started I can go back to a previously failed click and it will work fine.
Is there a setting I can change?
I am using IE6.0, Adobe Acrobat 5.1 and Windows XP.

Try going to the Help menu in Acrobat > Detect and Repair if that option is availabel in your version or upgrade to Acrobat Reader 6, it might pay to uninstall 5.1 first.

You may have to uninstall it and reinstall .
Try updating/reinstalling the latest Acrobat Reader:

PDF SpeedUp for Adobe Reader 1.32

A large PDF doc takes a while to download and on my system (XP home P4 2.8mhz 512 RAM Wired Country connection) nothing appears until the entire download is complete. Maybe you just need to wait.
