PowerPoint 2010 can't open hyperlink's .PDF file on Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Tried to repair and update Office 2010, and downgrade acrobat reader from 10 to 9.5. The problem also can't fix.
    The PowerPoint 2010 file that links PDF, and click the "Slide Show" and then "From Current Slide" to view. When I click the link, message prompt about "no program is registered to open the file."
    Other Win7 & PowerPoint 2010 PC can open that PowerPoint file and click the link to open the PDF file. The PowerPoint file and PDF file are saved in the same folder.
    The problem PC can open PDF file but can't open it from the hyperlink, and WIN7  PDF file assocations is open by Acrobat Reader.

  • Hi,

    Windows is unable to find the program associated with the type of file that is specified in the hyperlink path. This can occur for one of the following possible reasons:
    The program may not be installed.
    Some of the necessary program file association information may be missing or damaged.
    The program may not be correctly registered in the Windows registry.

    Please try to install Acrobat Reader and reinstall a latest version.
