    PDM opens .pdf files at check-in

    Jeffery Centinario

      Ever since I installed SolidWworks ePDM 2017 and Adobe Acrobat Pro on a new Windows 10 PC, PDM opens .pdf files when checking then into the vault.  This did not happen on a Windows 7 PC with same software.  How do I prevent PDM from opening .pdf files at check-in?

          See Solution ID S-066423 in the Knowledge Base.


          The fix was to repair the Reader DC installation which re-registered the Adobe plug-in for Internet Explorer (the preview window uses an embedded Internet Internet Explorer window).  There are other steps listed in the document attached to S-066423 for dealing with Adobe Pro.
