I have acrobat6. I would like to launch acrobat6
passing it a pdf name so it displays immediately.

I can accomplish this at the start-run command in windows
but want to do this programatically.

I have a shellapp function passing the program name and the pdf as a parameter but when i do it that way, acrobat
says 'there was an error opening this document. the path does not exist' as soon as you click on OK, it continues to load the pdf file as i want.

The path is correct (it must be for it to load)

Anyone any ideas how i can get rid of this message ?

For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
