    I "Cannot use adobe reader to view PDF in web browser". Actually, I am getting an error in Windows 7 and Acrobat pro 8.1.7. It says that the PDF cannot be viewed in the web browser and thus, adobe reader will exit not. It also tells to try again after restarting the browser. But, I keep getting the same problem again and again. I am not able to understand why this is happening. The browser that I am using is Internet Explorer 8.

    If you cannot use adobe reader to view PDF in web browser, then there may be some problem with the particular browser that you are using. You have mentioned that you are using IE 8. So, i suggest you to change to any of the following browsers:
    • Mozilla Firefox

To assure the same, run the hardware and software evaluation wizard in your system. It will list all the softwares and applications in your system, according to the compatibilities and incompatibilities.
