So outlook is giving me this error for some reason, it looks like the registry has gotten currupted but I havent been able to fix it.


I get this error when clicking on a pdf attachment in an email.


This file cannot be previewed because of an error with the following previewer

PDF Preview Handler


I then try to just save the pdf and I get this error:


To open this file in its own program, double click it.

Cannot create file: Individual Credit File.pdf. Right click the folder you want to create the file in, and then click properties on the shortcut menu to check
your permissions for the folder.


I tried removing the email account but it did nothing, I also forwarded one of the emails with the pdf in it to my own personal address and I had no problems viewing it and opening it so its not the email itself.

Check to make sure your Adobe Reader is up to date. If that doesn't work, you will probably have to edit that registry key. http://itouchline.com/2012/08/fixing-the-pdf-preview-handler/
