PDF in document library does not launch Adobe Acrobat RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    My client's configuration: O2k7 (incl. SharePoint supporting dlls), Win XP, Adobe Acrobat 9.0
    My server's configuration: W2k3, MOSS 2007.

    After I uploaded a pdf document and I click on EDIT DOCUMENT (so the settings in DOCICON.XML have been made) the following error message pops up: "the document could not tbe opened for editing. a windows sharepoint services compatible application could not be found to edit the document." - and nothing is shown.

    Switching to explorer view and clicking the pdf icon of a document launches Adobe Acrobat but ends up in the message:"there was an error opening this document. the filename, directory name, or volume label syntax in incorrect." - and nothing is shown.

    Could someone please help?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Cheers
    Markus

  • Edit Document is only for supported products. This means in effect the main Office products.

    PDF files can only be opened read-only; saved to your hard disk and then uploaded (again) using the SP UI.
