I'm having issues with my pdf reader; adobe reader v9.3.1.  

My error messages go like:
Error opening document <file path\filename>.pdf: Error: [PDF Structure 40]: Invalid property type

I attempted to update the adobe software,but this has not reolved anything.

I also installed PDF-XChange viewer to see if this would help, but no.  Very weird and I do recall a similar problem on the last PC (XP); current PC is Win7 64-bit.

Its not all documents either, and if I get real stuck I download/ print from my PC at work...

Any ideas?




Cheers, Stevo

Another vote for Foxit. Uninstall Adobe's PDF reader fully first IMO

Foxit updated to fix that big giant security hole in it right?




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

I used to like Foxit but they have added quite a lot of bloat, toolbars and other crap too it recently.

My new favourite no BS pdf reader is currently Sumatra PDF

Thanks everyone. I take it I need to unistall adobe first? I attempted to install foxit late last night, I get a splash image but it didn't install...

I'll give Sumatra a go too. Thanks for the responses.
