WinEdt 5.5 and Acrobat Reader 10 (X)

Postby s0198362 » Sat Jan 22, 2011 9:55 pm

I am having a problem opening (and closing) pdf files from winedt. (Version 5.5 and Acrobat Reader 10)

Initially the file opens, but gives an error back in winedt.

I searched about on the web for this and found the following advice:

[url=http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/WinEdt/message/10786]replace
"acroview" with "AcroviewR10" in DDEOpen macro in the Acrobat OpenDoc.edt file[/url]


I did this, and pdf files open fine. However normally I don't have to close pdf files if I re-compile them, winedt does this for me. Now however when I try this auto closing, the pdf does not close, and I get the following error.

I have tried replacing " acroview" with "AcroviewR10" as before in Acrobat CloseDoc.edt file, but this then causes Acrobat Reader to want to open some sort of security file - see image.

Pressing cancel seems to open up the new pdf file, but this is not an ideal solution!

Does anyone know of the full solution to this (apart from upgrading to winedt 6).

Thanks in advance.


P.S. Sorry about the large image dimensions. Not sure how to make them smaller on this forum.

Hi s0198362,

I had the same problem, my solution is as follows.
1. Uninstall Acrobat X
2. Install Acrobat 7.0 (not Pro)
>>>>Disable automatic update by
>>>>Edit>Preferences>Update(Categories)>Do not automatically check for critical updates
3. Reinstall Acrobat X
4. Set your WinEdt for Acrobat 7.0 by
>>>>Options>Execution Modes>Acrobat
>>>>PDF Viewer Executable: "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"
>>>>PDF Bin Folder:C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Reader
>>>>Caption: Adobe Reader
>>>>Go To Previous View Menu ID: 6100

I use it this way and Acrobat 7.0 is faster than most of the other versions and it looks nice.
I know this is not an expected solution but it works.
I hope you find it useful.

I have the same problem.
Is there another possibility using only Adobe X and WinEdt 5.5?

It looks like with a release of Acrobat Reader 11 the second problem has been solved. In other words, if one replaces "acroview" by "AcroviewR11" in both "Acrobat OpenDoc.edt" and "Acrobat CloseDoc.edt", everything becomes fine.

Hi, I followed the previous steps to make Acrobat Reader DC work with WinEdt 5, just changing to AcroviewR15.

But the "Go To Previous View Menu ID 6100" doesn't work. Acrobat Reder DC open the pdf file always at the first page.

What is the right ID for AcroviewR15?

Thank you!
