A friend of mine cannor read pdf files that I send him, the text comes out as gobble-de-goop.

His PC runs windows 98 and he uses AOL as his dial-up ISP. Adobe reader 7.0 is installed to read the pdf files.
I know that other people can view the same pdf file when sent to them.

Any ideas? I've heard that the AOL software can throw a few strange things at you!

rosko999,

can he right click on it and choose "open with".?

I don`t think version 7 is compatible with Windows 98. Has he ever successfully opened a pdf with version 7?

click here Windows 2000 onwards. If I remember rightly you need Acrobat Reader v5.1 - I don`t think v6 works either.

click here Click the OS as Windows and choose the windows 98 version.

Thanks for all the help. It looks like he's trying to use the wrong version for his OS.
I'll direct him to the links you've supplied.
