I am glad that the workaround for Reader 8.0 works.

I think that I picked it up from the TeXnicCenter user's group.

There seems to be just one problem: if Adobe Reader is running and the PDF file is not open, the DDE command for closing the document crashes Adobe. So, for instance, if you compile the file to PDF, view it in Reader, close it in Reader, go back to TexnicCenter and recompile, Reader will crash. Weird, though...

It seems that the fix for this is to place:
[DocOpen("%bm.pdf")]
before each of the 3 fields.

I tried that, and it fixed this latest problem that you have described.

Yes, it works. But you should enable the 'Show each document in its own window' option in the Adobe Reader preferences. Otherwise you will run into the problem described by dustbinbear.

Thanks!

To summarize, this is what worked for me:

view: [DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]
(server: acroview, Topic: control, for all of these)

forward search: exactly the same as view

close: [DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][DocClose("%bm.pdf")]

Actually, after putting an extra view: [DocOpen("%bm.pdf")] in the close, Adobe 8 still crashed Shocked , so I just decided to try putting another one before that, and that worked for me. I don't know why, but it didn't work with just one. So what worked for me is:

view: [DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]
(server: acroview, Topic: control)

forward search: [DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][FileOpen("%bm.pdf")]
(server: acroview, Topic: control)

close: [DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][DocOpen("%bm.pdf")][DocClose("%bm.pdf")]
(server: acroview, Topic: control)

I hopw this helped for some of you that still got some errors.

Hmm... That seems to work, but looks TOO weird... Smile
