Topic: Adobe Reader 6.0 does not startup automatically when needed
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 92459

I have used several of the prior Adobe Acrobat Reader programs without any difficulty whatsoever. But with the recently-downloaded Adobe Reader 6.0, a problem resulted. Previously all I had to do when I wanted to read a pdf file was to double-click on the pdf file and the Acrobat Reader started-up and before too long I could read the pdf file.
I downloaded the new Adobe Reader 6.0 and what used to happen DOESN'T happen. In order to read a pdf file I cannot just double-click on it. I have to start the Adobe Reader 6.0 program manually first.
When I downloaded and installed Adobe Reader 6.0, I followed all the prompts thinking that it would start-up just like its predecessors had.
I hope that someone will tell me how to correct what needs to be done.

Thank you,
Eric Olson
