How can I install Adobe Acrobat Reader for use with Opera?
Platform: All Windows versions
Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free reader of .pdf files from Adobe Systems Incorporated. Download the program from click here. (If you have difficulty downloading, go here.) Close Opera Double-click the downloaded file to start the installation wizard. Follow the on-screen instrustions to install the program. Find the file "nppdf32.dll" in the plug-in's folder (it can usually be found in C:\Program Files\Adobe Acrobat\Reader\Browser). Copy this file to Opera's Plug-ins directory (by default C:\Program Files\Opera\Program\Plugins). Open Opera. Opera will locate the "nppdf32.dll"-file and associate it with the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Now Opera will launch the Acrobat Reader when you use Opera to view .pdf-files.
This is a known problem after the recent update to Adobe. Adobe works with the Opera 9.0 Preview release click here but you might not want to install a Preview release. An alternative is to use Foxit PDF Reader click here . I'm using an older version of this and there are no issues with Opera 8.50.
