Re: Unable to open pdf files attached to an email with Adobe Acrobat Reader 8

    When I get emails with pdf files as attachments I am unable to open
    with Acrobat Reader 8. I get a message that there is not file
    association with this file type please setup an association. When not
    in Windows Live Mail I am able to open the file with Acrobat Reader 8.
    For example, after trying and failing to open the file I drag it to
    the desktop and then click on the file it will be displayed by Acrobat

    Has anyone any ideas as to what might be the problem.

    Any help appreciated.

  2. Uninstall Adobe Reader v8.x | Install Adobe Reader v9.1.2 [1] or Foxit
    Reader [2] | See if the behavior persists now.

    PS: You'll find support for Windows Live Mail (WLMail) in this public

    Via the web-interface:

    problems with opening pdf files is now gone.
