[Tex/LaTex] PDF Preview not working


I'm using LyX 1.6.8 on Windows 7 Pro x64. Today I installed Adobe Reader X – and it doesn't work with LyX any more: Adobe Reader does not open the generated PDF after you created the PDF with LyX. It only shows a welcome dialog like "Open last files – Acrobat services – etc".

First idea of course was "file association" – But the pdf file association is alright. Double clicking a pdf works from any place (also paths with spaces).

Anyone having ideas? Confirmthis? Maybe related to some 64 bit thing?

Best Answer

Go to Acrobat Reader’s Edit/Preferences/General and un-check the box at the bottom that says “Enable Protected Mode at startup”.

Or use a better PDF viewer such as Sumatra which works well with LaTeX and can synchronise TeX source and PDF.
