Error in SAP Gui when it tries to start and PDF with Adobe Reader 8.0

Hi everybody,

When a try to open a PDF file in transaction CV03N, it should open the file locally, I receive an error message. I noticed that this error begins after the installation of the Adobe Reader 8.

Anybody have seen it?

Thanks in advance,

Itamar Marioto

    We got the same error. It also occurred when we upgraded from 6.x to 7.x. For some reason it appears that SAP wants the full path to the reader. Here is what we got from SAP Support:

    Please make sure that the following entry:

    "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" /p /h "%1"

    is maintained at: 'Start -> Settings -> Control Panel', double-click

    on folder 'Folder Options', highlight extension 'PDF' in the window on

    tab 'File types', click button 'Advanced' and create (or edit) action

    'Print'. The entry needs to be done in the field 'Application used to

    perform action'. Check option 'Use DDE' and enter 'AcroRd32' in field

    'Application' and 'System' in field 'Topic'.

    I have more detail on settings in transaction DC30 if that doesn't fix the problem.

    Regards,

    John
