    PDF vs IE7

    Found out the new IE7 doesnt display pdf files....i mean i tried checking the 'pdf version' of a couple of tutorials around wt the browser but it doesnt show.Even tried running a script (in PHP) that generates pdf files and stilldoesnt work......Opera and mozilla however works fine....is the problem with the browser, or i need to download a plugin (which i doubt) or something...

    You have to have adobe acrobat reader installed in order to read PDF files. You might need to re-install it in order for it to install the plug-in into IE7.

    Same Problem

    I've got the same headache but I suspect that this is because I don't use Acrobat Reader, I've had no need of it till now because I use Acrobat. Seems IE7 doesn't recognize the Acrobat Control...

    Sigh..

    My work around? I reinstalled my acrobat reader and that does it. Guess it didnt work cause I installed Acrobat reader before IE7.
