Problems with PDF Files

There are any number of reasons why you may get an error message when opening a pdf file. The following tips should help to resolve your problem.

  • Your pdf reader software may be out-of-date. Make sure that your reader software is up-to-date.
  • The file may not have completely downloaded or the download was interrupted which caused the file to become corrupted. Re-download the file and wait until it has fully downloaded before opening.
  • Try using a different pdf reader. We recommend the free Adobe PDF Reader.
  • If the above tips fail to help, do a google search for your error message together with your computer operating system or device and you should be able to find a solution.
