    Hi, I wonder if you could give me some assistance about software upgrade.

    I had Acrobat Reader 5 on my PB, and decided to upgrade to 6. However, after the upgrade, I get "error code - 10660" whenever I try to open a .pdf by clicking on the file. I can still open the file from Reader 6. What do I need to do to be able to open .pdf files without having to open Acrobat Reader 6 first? :confused:

    And if you could explain why it is doing that that would be a bonus! :cool:

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    General maintenance suggestions:

    Run Disk Utility and repair permissions.
    Make sure you have the most up to date OS installed.
    If those fail, try reinstalling from Adobe Disks.
    These may fix the issue. I do not know that error code, but it sounds like a potentially bad instal disk (is it scratched?) or corrupt data somewhere along the way.
    software upgrade.

    I'm running OS X 10.3.4. Acrobat Reader 6 was downloaded from the Adobe website. I did repair permissions in the disk utility, but that didn't improve the situation. :confused: What's next?

    It could be that the OS is still looking for version 5 to open pdf's.

    First, try right-clicking (control+click) on a pdf and using Open With and choose Reader 6. If this works okay then choose a pdf file, get info and choose Reader 6 and click "Change all.." That will get all your pdf's associated with version 6, if the OS is currently still defaulting to 5.
