Cannot open DDE link: Acroview Error

Postby steve de costa » Tue Feb 09, 2010 11:00 pm


I primarily use BlueBeam Pdf Viewer for my computer (I just like it better). However, I have installed the free Adobe Acrobat Read 9 as well on my laptop.

Every time I try to compile a PDF TeXify in WinEdt, I get the attached error. I googled this for a little bit but wasn't getting anywhere with it. Can anyone please tell me how can I stop this?

The funny thing is, that even after this error pops up, I can still view the PDF output in BlueBeam Software.

Does anyone have any ideas about this?? OR is the problem too simple? Or too complicated?

Thanks a lot! Even if it's not the newest post - it did the thing for me today!
