The Adobe Acrobat/Reader that is running cannot be used to view PDF files in a web browser

This is caused by an incorrect registry entry.


Go to Start > Run
Type regedit and click OK.
Browse to the following key:

Make sure that the correct Default data value is set for the path where Adobe Reader or Acrobat are installed.

The default installation values are
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe"
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat.exe"
depending on whether Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat is installed.

This did not solve my problem. Any other tips?
