Media player is not able to open .pdf files by design, it is for media, like movies and music. You need Acrobat reader or another .pdf program to open them.
Thx. for your advice. It's only certain pdf files, that I am unable to open.They all have either pictures or short videos
in it, that triggers the Windows Media Player warning, that selected file has a pdf extension, that is unknown or not recognized by the player. If I transfer the file to a XP driven computer, in most cases I am able to open the file. It's
just Win 7 that creates problems.
What version of adobe reader? Try updating the Adobe reader.
I have no idea, which reader is installed in Win 7, or whether pdf files are opened natively by the browser. I
have now Adobe reader 9.5 installed, but also have tried Adobe 10x, to no avail.
Thx. for your help
Thx for your help.To my knowledge, all the pdf files that may have come my way, were opened byWin 7.
Media Player only comes on, when pictures or videos are included. It then brings up a warning, that the file is not recognized by the player.
