Preferred Solution: Unable to view PDF files in browser from SharePoint 2013

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Not sure what changed, but Internet Explorer 11 will not open pdf's in my client application - Adobe DC. I used to be able to do this, but now I get a blank page with a black circle with a line through it on the top left of the page. Can't add an image to
my post.
I cannot figure out what setting I need to change to allow pdfs to open in Adobe.
I do not want them to open in internet explorer so have disable Adobe Reader.
Please help!

I am experiencing a issue with the IE11 browser specifically when trying to select from the address book/people picker within SharePoint 2013 and it is not bringing
up the people pick box to select a user from. When I click on the address book it does nothing at all. The people picker is not working in IE, but working on my Chrome browser just fine so that made me believe it could possibly be a browser issue. I am trying
to find a fix as majority of the users at my company use IE v11, so I was researching what could possibly be causing this for this browser only and being it is a sporadic occurrence. 

I have tried setting the sharepoint.com site within the 'Compatibility View Settings', and also modified the custom level security zone and cleared my cache. And
nothing is seem to be helping me resolve this issue.

Any help would be appreciated in advance!

I have a user who has made changes to a SharePoint 2013 web part publishing page but Check In is grayed out. The yellow status bar says "Status: My personalized view of the page". I've never seen this message and can't find anything about it. I could override the checkout but I don't want her to lose her changes. What can she do to re-enable Check In?

Not sure what I did but I recently modified a document on our SharePoint and saved it locally. Now when I open that master document on SharePoint it opens the one I saved locally a while back and asks if I want to update the server. I've searched on various forums for a fix for this but have yet to find a solution.

How can I open these master documents on sharepoint without having it ask to update the server. I'd hate to accidentally save over the master document.

I'm using MS Office 2013, and SharePoint 2010.

hey guys I was a little confused if this was the right place 'all other applications'
So I have extremely limited experience with Sharepoint 2013.
But my boss asked me today if I could just 'check out' what possibilities we might have with sharepoint 2013.
Regarding two things.
1: We have documentation spread all over our 'older sharepoint' and 3 other purchased systems..
this documentation is everything from firewall logs, to password lists, IP lists, printer manuals, etc etc.
2: We have our own constructed Wiki, in reality we have 600 documents in a folder.
like: "How to get rid of this virus" "How to push our security out on iphones" articles to help us in the IT department.
We have an Active Directory and Exchange user setup.
So lets say you wanted to sort all this out, and have it placed in one spot.
with easy search functions, and of course the possibility to limit users as only our Admin accounts from the AD should 
be allowed to view the password lists.

Not knowing anything about sharepoint 2013, could you maybe point me in a direction towards something that might be suitable?
also if you plan on suggesting alternatives, let me make it clear we don't wish this to be online, no cloud services

I use SharePoint 2010 and 2013 and need Designer for both versions. 2010 has installed fine, but 2013 gets almost all the way through the install then unhelpfully just says "Microsoft SharePoint Designer encountered an error during setup" and no further details given. I'm running Office 32-bit on a 64-bit machine. The issues have been with the 32-bit version. I know that with the rest of Office being 32-bit I need to stick with that, but any ideas on how to troubleshoot the install? Thanks!

A:SharePoint Designer 2013 install issue

That's very interesting. I can certainly pass that on to the server team. I don't have Admin rights on my machine. The strange thing is the previous person who used this computer had no issues with running both versions (prior to the machine being wiped for me) which makes it all the more surprising that there'd be an issue.

We just upgraded to Office 2013. Since the upgrade some users are unable to edit Office documents that they open through SharePoint. I can see that the documents are opened as read only. Even if they select to edit the document in SharePoint it throws up an alert saying that they don't have permissions to edit the document.

I checked all permissions and they appear to be OK. Is there any setting in Office 2013 that is maybe defaulted to read only or something?

Hello, Please help me. I have Windows 2000 Professional. I'm pretty new to all this as I have only had a computer for about a week. I got some adware threats detected by Norton Antivirus 2004 and have done a lot of reading up and I am now tring to delete them.

One of the removal instructions provided by Norton promps me to delete a file in C:\Winnt\Downloaded Program Files but when I go to view this folder it looks like there are no files inside. Now, I know there are files in there as Norton Antivirus has picked up one in there and when I view the proporties for that folder it states there are 12 files inside but when I view the folder with Windows Explorer it appears empty!

I've gone into folder option and changed the settings so it shows hidden files and hidden system files yet this still doesn't let me view the files in this folder. How can I delete this file if I am unable to view it?

If anyone can point me to a turorial that explains this or explain it to me I would really appreciate this.

Please help a n00b.

Cheers, Luke.

A:Unable to view files in C:\Winnt\Downloaded Program Files

I'm assuming you have done this to Show hidden files and folders:
Go to Control Panel/Folder Options/View and select "Show hidden files and folders"

Also,place a check in "Display the contents of system folders"
And,uncheck "Hide protected operating system files(Recommended)"

If the above doesn't work try this:
Create the REG_DWORD ShowSuperHidden (if it doesn't already exist) Set the value to 1, click OK, and close the Registry editor

Hi Everyone,
We are getting an error with Adobe Reader DC when trying to open or save files to Sharepoint 2013.
An Error has occurred in the script on this page
Line: 42
Char: 5
Error: Unable to get property 'empty' of undefined or null reference
Code: 0
URL: domain.com/_vti_bin/owssvr.dll?diagview=FileOpen&FIledialogFilterValue=*-pdf&location=filepath
Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?  Yes/No
Whatever option we press (yes/no) the error will not go away.

This happens in the open or save window that opens within Adobe Reader DC version 2015.010.20056
At this stage more than 1 Windows 8.1 Pro 64 systems are affected, and some of the same version systems are not affected.
I can confirm that the open/save window on Office products (2013 word, Outlook and Excel) work fine and are not affected, it just seems to be Adobe Reader DC. 
Please let us know how we might fix this.
Thanks in advance.

One of my customer has extended windows-claims based Sp2013 web application to Internet. SO I have 2 urls - Http for intranet and https for internet
They have extended internet facing site using ADFS authentication
When a user logs in via the internet facing site, even if the windows claims identity is added in owners group,the internet facing site returns a blank screen post authentication ..
However if a claims identity is added, it works.
Is this expected behavior?
There are multiple claims created - SID, email, first name. When users try to add people, they are unable to find the windows accounts on the internet facing site. This is leading to adding duplicate accounts in the site(one -windows other claims)

Any suggestions?

I have a client who is having a problem with his 2 remaining XP systems. It's an auto repair shop and they use an online site to view schematics for vehicles, wiring, etc. These schematics are all in PDF format.
Many of them are viewable with no problem, but many are no longer viewable on the XP systems when using IE8. When you click the link on the page, for a minute fraction of a second you see the diagram flash in the window frame and then it goes blank. If you
use another browser such as Firefox all the PDFs view just fine. But this client doesn't like change (hence the XP systems still in use) and doesn't want another browser but wants to keep using IE.
I have uninstalled Adobe Reader and reinstalled it, installed FoxIt Reader, reset IE several times, made sure all cache was cleared out. Nothing helps. So it appears that the problem is specific to IE8 since Firefox can display the PDFs fine on those same
XP systems. I've also tried changing preference settings in Adobe Reader security and internet sections but they didn't help.
When you login to the website it flashes a message about "checking your browser" but doesn't give any errors as if the checks were passed.
So I'm checking here to see if someone might have an idea of something I may have missed. I believe that there must be some incompatibility at that site with IE8 that isn't detected, but I don't want to assume that if there is something else that can be
done. I'd love for him to just use Fir... Read more

I'm running XP SP2.

I have a external USB HD that I use to store music files on. Just recently I noticed that I'm unable to view some files in one particular folder. It seems that all files from F to Z are gone. I redownloaded the MP3's and when I moved them into the folder I got a message saying a file with the same name already exists. All other folders on the drive are fine. I checked the Folder Options and everything looked good. A google search turned up empty.

Any suggestions?

Hello Community,

I'm having an issue here, and reading through threads and forum posts - i'm getting nowhere.

I get no error messages when trying to open a file from a mapped drive.

I have a user onsite unable to open any Mircosoft Office 2013 files from any of his mapped network drives. If he takes the files, copies them locally to his laptop, then open perfectly fine. However, if i try to open a office file from their mapped drive, it just opens up a blank document.

--I've done the changing folder name of the Microsoft folder within %AppData%, still no luck.
--I've tried repairing Microsoft Office, still no luck.

I don't want to uninstall office, then re-install as i will have to drop the computer off our domain (Group Policy for some reason, blocks office.) *I'd prefer this to be the final option.

Surely there must be a fix around? Much thanks!

There is a super long story to why I am hooking up my HD through USB to view the log files but it ends with my computer not booting at all.

What I am trying to do is view the log files from my other HD through a USB hook up. I found the files here:


But when I use the Event Viewer to open them I receive this message:

Unable to complete the operation on "Log Name".
The event log file is corrupted.

So, I even downloaded Event Log Explorer to see if I could open them and it does "open the file" but shows no contents BUT there is definitely contents because you can open the file as .txt and view the encryption.

I'm desperate to know what is in the log files because I have literally troubleshot every piece of hardware on my rig with the same result even though the hardware is working properly.

Any help on how to open these files would be appreciated I would even be willing to post them or send them for anyone who thinks they might have some software that could do it.

Thank you for your time,

You most likely need to update your version of PMB - it is up to at least v5 as far as I can see - your video files may not be able to be read by your older version.

Hi there, I have a Dell inspiron 1525 laptop with Windows Vista Basic and a really strange occurance happened to me while I was saving a document from Mirocsoft Office Word. When I when to go save it there was no text box to rename it or choose the file format. Then I went to open up Explorer and there was no directory only the the C: drive, CD drive, and other drives but when you click to explore them theres nothing inside! It wasn't deleated or anything because the hard drive still showed memory was used. Even when I opened up Control Panel there was nothing there! Just a window with nothing in it.

But after restarting it, it was perfectly fine...
then happend again a week later. Restarted it. and it was fine.

I don't know if I have a virus, or something. I did scan it for viruses but nothing came up.
I recently had the "blue-screen-of-death" happen I'm not sure if that has any relevence though.

I would really apprecitate it if someone could tell me what the problem was, and if my files are at risk.
If not, then would replacing the hard drive work?

Please bare with me with technical infromation, I'm not too bright with computers.

Running XP PRO. When I send files to the Recycle bin and then double click on the Desktop Icon to view them there is nothing there. However, if I click on 'file' it will ask me if I wish to delete 'all of the (23) items'? Clicking 'yes' will empty the bin. Problem is I am unable to see what I am deleting. Have tried the 'Property Tab' and have the first six items checked in 'view details'.
Visited MS/Support and checked out Q136517, no luck here either. For the life of me I do not remember when I first noticed this phenomena....I use NAV2K current and UTD scanned yesterday no virus present. Use AdAware twice weekly always find hits here and delete 'em...also use SurfSecret continuously and it dumps my 'cookies' everytime my Browser closes.
It sure does beat the bejeepers outa me for sure.Other than this my eMachine D2266 runs just great, no other problems or slowdowns etc. It's another MS Windows mystery......

if you do not maybe you can barrow one from a friend/family member/co-worker as long as it is the same version that is on your system

I deleted a fairly large amount of files to my recycle bin. After I restored them I found that they weren't in the folders they were in originally. I searched for them and found them but am unable to access them. When I try to open file location a message pops up saying that 'the file location refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer or on a network. If it cannot be located it might have moved to a different location'
Does anyone know how I may be able to find the location of these files?

A:Unable to view files restored from recycle bin

I have Adobe Reader 8.1.2 installed on my machine. I am running Vista Ultimate. When I try to open a PDF from IE 7.0 I get the following message: "Adobe Reader is not installed. Download and install Adobe Reader and try again." I have the product installed. In fact when I click on a PDF file directly (not through IE) the association is found and the PDF is displayed in the reader.

Anyone run into this? Do you know of a fix?
