    Default Adobe Reader cannot open pdf after upgrade to windows 8

    Hi there,

    I upgraded my copmuter from windows 7 to windows 8, but when i use adobe reader to open pdf files failed. I installed the latest vision of adobe reader, and nothing abnormal happened during the install process. I reinstalled it several times but nothing changed!!!

    Who can tell me what's wrong with adobe reader? I really appreciate.

    Did you check for Windows 8 compatibility?

    I just loaded "Foxit Reader". It loads and runs much faster than Adobe Reader, runs fine on Win-8 and it's FREE.

    Just a suggestion....dump that old Adobe dinosaur and get Foxit Reader.

    Adobe Reader has been lots more insecure as well. I would second the recommendation for Fox It Reader.

    PDF-XChange Viewer is working also.

    I had problems with PDF-XChange viewer opening in IE 10. I have the Pro edition in Win 7 but could not get it working in Win 8 CP so I switched to Fox It Reader for my Win 8 CP OS. May try PDF-XChange Viewer again at some point and see what happens when I get time.

    I'll try out that Fox It reader myself, though Adobe Reader 10.1.2 is working fine on my Win 8 CP x64 system (just tested it on a PDF document). Adobe has been known for having security issues.

    Ted, I just tried PDF-XChange viewer Pro on IE 10 and had issues with it opening also.

    That's what happened to me as well. I could open PDF files I had downloaded, but would not open in IE 10. That's why I switched to Fox It Reader in IE 10.

    I only use Adobe Reader if necessary and don't even have it installed for endless security problems. I use Foxit reader too.

    I'm going to download & install that Fox It reader now. I've heard that in the past, Adobe had security issues, but didn't realize that it was ongoing.
