I have Adobe Acrobat reader version 14 installed on my XP computer. However, when I try to download a knitting pattern in pdf format, I get an error box that says I cannot download this file unless I have at least Acrobat version 8 or 9. A couple of times I have been able to catch the web address in time to patch it into the Acrobat reader box and get the file that way but not always.

How can I set the browser to make sure the latest version will load the pdf file?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Astrovel,
Try right click on the link and select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As"
in the Save As window it should show as Adobe Document or Adobe PDF.
If there are previous versions of Adobe Acrobat, try un-installing as well.
I am sure the "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" will help.
Cheers :crazy:

I have Adobe Acrobat reader version 14 installed on my XP computer.

Not sure what you mean about Acrobat Reader version 14 and the latest current version is Version 11 and you can download it from HERE.

I think the difference in versions is that one id full program and the version 11 is a browser addon /plugin

and I think the error is giving because the browser addon is not install or the wrong version ,maybe

My answers are my opinion only,usually

I would try un-installing all versions of Acrobat Reader and then install just the lastest version of Adobe Reader Version XI
