You create a hyperlink to an Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF) file in a document in one of the programs that are listed in the "Applies to" section. When you click the link to open the PDF file, Adobe Acrobat Reader starts and then closes without opening the PDF file. This problem also occurs when you click an existing link to a PDF file in one of the programs that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
This problem occurs if you have Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 installed on the computer.
To resolve this problem, update Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 to Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.01. To do this, follow these steps:
Start Adobe Acrobat Reader.
On the Help menu, click Check for updates now.
Under Current Updates, click Adobe Acrobat 7.0.1 and Reader 7.0.1 Update, and then click Add.
