    Ie9 does not display 'open' option for pdf files

    Using Internet Explorer (IE9 oin this case) some of the PCs , when opening a pdf file, get the options of 'Open' or 'Save' the file while some of the PC's get only the 'Save' option. What settings dictates whether you get the 'Open' option in the prompt?
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Lounge,

    Do you have the same PDF reader on all computers?

    correction

    sorry my post was a bit incorrect. THe file I click on is a .pdf file but the error is refering to another file.
    Looking at the message more closely, it it talking about saving the aspx file (download_aspx)
    'Do you want to save download_aspx?AttachmentType=5&AttachmentId=.....
    This is running from a Microsoft CRM page.

    If you accept, that it save a pdf file or not? And do you have the same pdf reader on all pcs or not?
