    IE error when closing pdf file (Win 98,IE 6.0, Acrobat 5.1)

    If I click on a pdf file and it opens a new window, IE will close and send error message when I close the pdf window. Here is the error message "IEXPLORE caused an invalid page fault in module PDF.OCX at 017f:021ca7b3".

    Haven't tried to search down the error yet, but I have an idea I bet stops this. Why don't you Download the new Acrobat Reader 6.0 just out, but as Dave A. points out, in this thread uninstall 5.1 first (I didn't and now will have to uninstall them both and reinstall 6.0) so you won't have problems if you uninstall 5.1 after installing 6.0 instead of before. I bet that makes your error go away and 6.0 has some new features.

    Is this happening while using the full version of Adobe Acrobat or just with the reader?

    Were you able to uninstall your current version of Acrobat Reader, 5.1 and then install the latest one that just became available a few days ago? This may be a throw away get a new one solution for a corrupt file(s), but one that will solve the problem I think.

    My wife has been working on this for me because of me work schedule.

    She said that you have to have XP to run the latest Reader. So she uninstalled 5.1.0 and reinstalled it. Reinstalled Reader had problems finding plug ins. She reverted to old setup with Goback.

    Hopefully I will have time to work on it tomorrow.

    Not so. The Adobe download page for Adobe Reader 6.0 has Win98 & Win98Se as available OS selections.

    Ok, I went to Adobe.com and click on under Downloads, Download Adobe Reader.

    Then it says step 1 of 2. Language - English Platform. Windows 98 then it says connection speed I click on broadband.

    Then 2 of 2 it says download size 9.9MB and File Acrobat Reader 5.05 then Download.

    Please tell me where I should go then to download 6.0 Reader. Because it is telling me to download 5.05

    Thanks!

    I thought you had Win98Se. Reader 6.0 requires Win98Se or higher. I apologize for missing that.

    Sorry--I didn't catch that because when I went for 6 it downloaded it because I have XP. OK then, substitute 5.05--uninstall what you have that's giving you the problem, and then download 5.05 for your Windows 98, and now I bet you'll be fine.

    Found a thread discussing this problem on Adobe web site. Removing one entry from registry fixed my problem. Here is a link for anyone interested.

    Re: IE error when closing pdf file (Win 98,IE 6.0, Acrobat 5.1)

    <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15> Now that there's a fix in the offing, I want to re-enable Acrobat Reader for IE, but can't remember how I disabled it? It's not any of the options under Preferences in Reader. ActiveX controls enabled in IE, and the OCX file is where it should be. I think the info on disabling it came via the Lounge, but I can't find it. The effect was to prevent PDF files opening in, or via, IE, thus preventing the lock ups. Any ideas?

    btw A more direct link to fix is Explorer generates error, for anyone not a member of Adobe forums.
