Problem opening pdf files in IE8
If I try to open a pdf file in IE8 I get this:
"Cannot use Adobe Reader to view pdf in your web browser. Reader will now
exit. Please exit your browser and try again"

I notice that the Adobe add-in is version 8.0.0.456 while Acrobat reader is
8.1.4
Am I getting this message because they are not the same versions, and if so,
how do I update the IE add-in?

Thanks

Neither one is the latest version, and this may have contributed to your
problem. You should first update Adober Reader to the current version of
V9.

You should be running Adobe Reader v9.1.3 at this point! See
