Fixing everyday PC problems on my PC

Fixed “Cannot find Acrobat External Window Handler”

Just my luck today to have problems opening Acrobat PDF files when browsing. I would click on the link to the file, then get the message “Cannot find Acrobat External Window Handler”. Then a pause and the file would open.

But I wanted the files to open smoothly like they usually do. Every interruption is a nuisance, and like all Internet users, I view many PDF files a day.

The solution was easy:

  • Close my browser, IE 8
  • Run Adobe Reader (my version is 9.1.3)
  • Take option Repair Adobe Reader Installation on the Help menu.
